Creating a Mapping from the Informatica Mapping Templates

Creating a Mapping from the Informatica Mapping Templates

Informatica mapping templates are predefined mapping templates that cover common data warehousing patterns. Slowly Changing Dimensions, Remove Duplicates, and Incremental Load are the data warehousing patterns for which Informatica provides mapping templates. These templates provide solutions for common issues in the data warehousing designs. You can use the predefined mapping templates to document methods to map or process data.
Use the Import Mapping Template Wizard to specify a mapping name, description, and parameter values for each mapping that you want to create from the Informatica mapping template.
When you reuse a parameter file, verify that the parameter file and the mapping template are of the same parameter type.
To create a mapping from the mapping template wizards, complete the following tasks:
  1. Select the mapping template.
  2. Specify the mapping details and the parameter values.
  3. Create the mappings and save the parameter values.
  4. Import the mappings into the repository.
