Linking Ports by Name and Prefix/Suffix using the Autolink Dialog Box

Linking Ports by Name and Prefix/Suffix using the Autolink Dialog Box

To link ports by name and prefix or suffix using the Autolink dialog box:
  1. Click Layout > Autolink.
  2. Select the transformations and targets.
    You can select multiple transformations in the To Transformations list to link one transformation to multiple transformations. For objects that contain input groups such as Custom transformations or XML targets, select the group name from the To Transformation list.
  3. Select Name.
  4. Click More to view the options for entering prefixes and suffixes.
  5. In From Transformation, enter the prefix or suffix used in the ports from which you are linking.
  6. In To Transformation, enter the prefix or suffix used in the ports to which you are linking.
    In this example, the Designer links ports in SQ_CUSTOMERS to ports in FIL_STATE where the port name in FIL_STATE is either the same as SQ_CUSTOMERS, or is the same and is preceded by the prefix “F_”.
  7. Click OK.
