Validating a Mapping

Validating a Mapping

When you develop a mapping, you must configure it so the Integration Service can read and process the entire mapping. The Designer marks a mapping invalid when it detects errors that will prevent the Integration Service from running sessions associated with the mapping.
The Designer marks a mapping valid for the following reasons:
  • Connection validation.
    Required ports are connected and that all connections are valid.
  • Expression validation.
    All expressions are valid.
  • Object validation.
    The independent object definition matches the instance in the mapping.
  • Data flow validation.
    The data must be able to flow from the sources to the targets without hanging at blocking transformations.
