entity

entity

Defines a set of tables that are related based on physical or logical constraints. An entity can contain parent tables and child tables. An entity maintains relational hierarchy in the tables. Define filter parameters for ports in the entity to extract the columns from the tables in an entity. When you run a workflow generated from a data subset plan, the PowerCenter Integration Service extracts source data based on the filter parameters defined in the entity and loads the data to the subset tables.
