You create a user-defined group to test a condition based on incoming data. A user-defined group consists of output ports and a group filter condition. You can create and edit user-defined groups on the Groups tab with the Designer. Create one user-defined group for each condition that you want to specify.
The Integration Service uses the condition to evaluate each row of incoming data. It tests the conditions of each user-defined group before processing the default group. The Integration Service determines the order of evaluation for each condition based on the order of the connected output groups. The Integration Service processes user-defined groups that are connected to a transformation or a target in a mapping. The Integration Service only processes user-defined groups that are
connected in a mapping if the default group is connected to a transformation or a target.
If a row meets more than one group filter condition, the Integration Service passes this row multiple times.
