Joiner Transformation Overview

Joiner Transformation Overview

Use the Joiner transformation to join source data from two related heterogeneous sources residing in different locations or file systems. You can also join data from the same source. The Joiner transformation joins sources with at least one matching column. The Joiner transformation uses a condition that matches one or more pairs of columns between the two sources. The Joiner transformation is an active transformation.
The two input pipelines include a master pipeline and a detail pipeline or a master and a detail branch. The master pipeline ends at the Joiner transformation, while the detail pipeline continues to the target.
To join more than two sources in a mapping, join the output from the Joiner transformation with another source pipeline. Add Joiner transformations to the mapping until you have joined all the source pipelines.
The Joiner transformation accepts input from most transformations. However, consider the following limitations on the pipelines you connect to the Joiner transformation:
  • You cannot use a Joiner transformation when either input pipeline contains an Update Strategy transformation.
  • You cannot use a Joiner transformation if you connect a Sequence Generator transformation directly before the Joiner transformation.
