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.
