Rule Specifications

Rule Specifications

Effective in version 10.2, you can select a rule specification from the Model repository in Informatica Developer and add the rule specification to a mapping. You can also deploy a rule specification as a web service.
A rule specification is a read-only object in the Developer tool. Add a rule specification to a mapping in the same way that you add a mapplet to a mapping. You can continue to select a mapplet that you generated from a rule specification and add the mapplet to a mapping.
Add a rule specification to a mapping when you want the mapping to apply the logic that the current rule specification represents. Add the corresponding mapplet to a mapping when you want to use or update the mapplet logic independently of the rule specification.
When you add a rule specification to a mapping, you can specify the type of outputs on the rule specification. By default, a rule specification has a single output port that contains the final result of the rule specification analysis for each input data row. You can configure the rule specification to create an output port for every rule set in the rule specification.

Informatica 10.2 Developer Mapping Guide
