Connecting to Mapplet Output Groups

Connecting to Mapplet Output Groups

Each Output transformation displays as an output group when you use a mapplet in a mapping. Connect the mapplet output ports to the mapping pipeline. Use Autolink to connect the ports.
Use the following rules and guidelines when you connect mapplet output ports in the mapping:
  • When a mapplet contains a source qualifier that has an override for the default SQL query, you must connect all of the source qualifier output ports to the next transformation within the mapplet.
  • If the mapplet contains more than one source qualifier, use a Joiner transformation to join the output into one pipeline.
  • If the mapplet contains only one source qualifier, you must connect the mapplet output ports to separate pipelines. You cannot use a Joiner transformation to join the output.
    If you need to join the pipelines, you can create two mappings to perform this task:
    • Use the mapplet in the first mapping and write data in each pipeline to separate targets.
    • Use the targets as sources in the second mapping to join data, then perform any additional transformation necessary.
