Configuring Connection Settings

Configuring Connection Settings

Use the Connections settings in the Transformations view on the Mapping tab to configure the connection type for all target partitions. You can choose different connection objects for each partition, but they must all be of the same type.
Use one of the following connection types with target files:
  • None.
    Write the partitioned target files to the local machine.
  • FTP.
    Transfer the partitioned target files to another machine. You can transfer the files to any machine to which the Integration Service can connect.
  • Loader.
    Use an external loader that can load from multiple output files. This option appears if the pipeline loads data to a relational target and you choose a file writer in the Writers settings on the Mapping tab. If you choose a loader that cannot load from multiple output files, the Integration Service fails the session.
  • Message Queue.
    Transfer the partitioned target files to a WebSphere MQ message queue.
You can merge target files if you choose a local or FTP connection type for all target partitions. You cannot merge output files from sessions with multiple partitions if you use an external loader or a WebSphere MQ message queue as the target connection type.
The following table describes the connection options for file targets in a mapping:
Attribute
Description
Connection Type
Choose an FTP, external loader, or message queue connection. Select None for a local connection.
The connection type is the same for all partitions.
Value
For an FTP, external loader, or message queue connection, click the Open button in this field to select the connection object.
You can specify a different connection object for each partition.
