Propagating Dependencies in a Link Path

Propagating Dependencies in a Link Path

When you propagate dependencies in a link path, the Designer updates all the input and input/output ports in its forward link path and all the output and input/output ports in its backward link path. The Designer performs the following updates:
  • Updates the port name, datatype, precision, scale, and description for all ports in the link path of the propagated port.
  • Updates all expressions or conditions that reference the propagated port with the changed port name.
  • Updates the associated port property in a dynamic Lookup transformation if the associated port name changes.
  • Updates the port name of Custom transformation port dependencies.
When you propagate a port name, the Designer appends “1” to the port name if a port with the same name exists in the transformation.
