XSD Data Source Connection Settings

XSD Data Source Connection Settings

You can override the plan settings and enter different source and target file directories in a plan that contains XSD data sources. The settings apply to all files in the directory. You can override the data source connection settings for individual files in the directory.
The following table describes the connection options that you can configure at the data source level and at the file level:
Connection Options
Description
Source File Directory
The path to the XML source file directory. The source file must reside on the server on which the PowerCenter Integration Service runs.
Target File Directory
The path to the XML target file directory.
Source Type
Indicates whether the source file contains the source data or whether the source file contains a list of files with the same file properties. Use to configure multiple file sources with a file list.
  • Direct. The source file contains the source data.
  • Indirect. The source file is an index file. The index file contains a list of file names. The PowerCenter Integration Service finds the index file and reads each listed file when it runs the session. The index file must have an empty line at the end of the file.
Default is Direct.
Source File Name
The file name or file name and path. Optionally, use the $InputFileName session parameter for the file name.
If you specify both the directory and file name in the
Source File Directory
field, clear this field. The PowerCenter Integration Service concatenates this field with the
Source File Directory
field when it runs the session. For example, if you have "C:\XMLdata\" in the
Source File Directory
field, then enter "filename.xml" in the Source File Name field. When the PowerCenter Integration Service begins the session, it looks for "C:\XMLdata\filename.xml".
Output File Name
The file name, or file name and path. Optionally, use the $OutputFileName session parameter for the file name.
If you specify both the directory and file name in the
Output File Directory
field, clear this field. The PowerCenter Integration Service concatenates this field with the
Output File Directory
field when it runs the session.
