Linking Ports by Name

Linking Ports by Name

You can link ports by name in the Designer. The Designer adds links between input and output ports that have the same name. Linking by name is not case sensitive. Link by name when you use the same port names across transformations. The Designer can link ports based on prefixes and suffixes that you define. Link by name and prefix or suffix when you use prefixes or suffixes in port names to distinguish where they occur in the mapping or mapplet. Use the following options to link by name:
  • Autolink dialog box.
    To automatically link ports by name, link ports by name and prefix, and link ports by name and suffix using the Autolink dialog box, click Layout > Autolink.
  • Autolink command.
    To link objects by selecting the ports in the workspace, click Layout > Autolink by Name.
