Copying Mapping Segments

Copying Mapping Segments

You can copy segments of mappings and mapplets when you want to reuse a portion of the mapping logic. A segment consists of one of more objects in a mapping or mapplet. The objects can be sources, targets, shortcuts, transformations, and mapplets. To copy mapping segments, select and copy the segments from one mapping and paste them into a target mapping. You can paste segments of mappings or mapplets into an empty mapping or mapplet workspace. You can also copy segments across folders or repositories.
To copy a segment of a mapping or mapplet:
  1. Open a mapping or mapplet.
  2. Select a segment by highlighting each object you want to copy.
    You can select multiple objects. You can also select segments by dragging the pointer in a rectangle around objects in the workspace.
  3. Copy the segment to the clipboard.
  4. Open a target mapping or mapplet.
    Optionally, you can open an empty mapping or mapplet workspace.
  5. Click Edit > Paste or press Ctrl+V.
    The Copy Wizard opens if you have copy conflicts.
