Effective in version 10.0, Informatica has the following new features for Mapping tasks:
Mapping task log file directory
You can configure the directory where the Data Integration Service writes the Mapping task log. By default, the Data Integration Service writes the Mapping task log file in the directory defined by the system parameter, LogDir. The default location is disLogs/mappingtask. You can configure a different directory for the Mapping task log file in the Mapping task
properties. You can parameterize the log file directory.
Mapping task log file name
You can configure a file name for the Mapping task log file. The Data Integration Service appends the file name to the information in the Masking Task Log File Directory field. It appends the log file name to a UID and time stamp or to a mapping run number, based on how you choose to save the log file. You can parameterize the log file name. Configure the log file name in the Mapping task
Mapping task log save type
You can save the Mapping task log file by timestamp or by the number of mapping task runs. The suffix of the mapping task log file name reflects the option you select. You can configure how many log files to save.
You can enter the classpath to add to the beginning of the system classpath when the Data Integration Service runs the mapping task. Enter a Java classpath in the
properties if you use third-party Java packages, built-in Java packages, or custom Java packages in a Java transformation.
Mapping task parameter usage
Effective in version 10.0, you can view which objects in a mapping use a specific parameter. Select a parameter on the Mapping task
tab, and click
You can define custom properties for a Mapping task and configure the property values. You can also parameterize a custom property.
