Steps to Create a Target in the Target Designer

Steps to Create a Target in the Target Designer

You can create one or more targets in the Target Designer by selecting transformations in the Navigator and dragging them to the Target Designer workspace.
When you create a target from a transformation in a different folder, the Designer copies the transformation to the target folder and creates the target from the transformation. When you create a target from a transformation in a shared folder, the Designer creates a shortcut to the transformation in the target folder before it creates the transformation.
The following table describes the objects you can use to create a target in the Target Designer:
Navigator Location
Transformations node
Transformation Instance
Mappings node
Transformation Instances node for a mapping
To create a target definition in the Target Designer:
  1. Open the Target Designer.
  2. Drag a transformation from the Transformations node or the Transformation Instances node in the Navigator to the workspace.
    The target definition appears.
The Designer adds the new target to the Navigator and the Target Designer workspace. When you use version control in the repository, the new target is checked out by default.
If the new target name conflicts with an existing target name, the Designer prompts you to rename the new target or replace the existing target definition.
