Mapping Input Ports to the Operation Input

Mapping Input Ports to the Operation Input

When you show the transformation input mapping, you can define input groups, define input ports, and map input ports to operation input nodes.
  1. Open a Web Service Consumer transformation.
  2. To show the transformation input mapping, use one of the following methods:
    • For a reusable transformation, click the
      Overview
      view. Choose to show the input mapping.
    • For a non-reusable transformation, click the
      Ports
      tab in the
      Properties
      view. Choose to show the input mapping.
  3. Define a primary key for the root input group.
  4. To add an input group or port to the
    Ports
    area, use one of the following methods:
    Option
    Description
    Drag a node
    Drag a group node or a child node in the
    Operation Input
    area to an empty column in the
    Ports
    area. If the node is a group node, the Developer tool adds a group without ports.
    Manually add a group or port
    To add a group, click the arrow next to the
    New
    button and then click
    Group
    . To add a port, click the arrow next to the
    New
    button and then click
    Field
    .
    Drag a port from another transformation
    In the editor, drag a port from another transformation to the Web Service Consumer transformation.
    Copy a port
    Select ports from another transformation and copy them to the
    Ports
    area. To copy ports, you can use keyboard shortcuts or you can use the copy and paste buttons in the Developer tool.
    Select
    Map first level of hierarchy
    Select
    Map first level of hierarchy
    . The Developer tool maps nodes in the first level of the operation input to input ports and groups. The Developer tool also creates the input ports and groups to perform the mapping.
  5. If you manually create a port or you copy a port from another transformation, click the
    Location
    column in the
    Operation Input
    area and choose a port from the list.
  6. To map input ports as a composite key, use one of the following methods:
    Option
    Description
    Drag input ports
    Select two or more input ports and drag them to a key in the operation input hierarchy.
    Select input ports from the
    Select Location
    dialog box
    Click the
    Location
    column of a key in the operation input hierarchy and then select the input ports.
  7. To clear the locations of nodes, use one of the following methods:
    Option
    Description
    Click
    Clear
    Select one or more nodes in the
    Operation Input
    area and click
    Clear
    .
    Delete the lines that connect ports to nodes
    Select one or more lines that connect the input ports to the nodes in the operation input and press
    Delete
    .
  8. If the associated WSDL data object includes anyType elements, any elements, anyAttribute attributes, derived type elements, or substitution groups, choose objects in the
    Operation Input
    area. In the
    Type
    column for a node, click
    Choose
    and then choose one or more types, elements, or attributes from the list.
  9. To map XML data from a string or text input port to the complete SOAP request, right-click the port and select
    Map as XML
    .
