Creating a mapplet

Creating a mapplet

Create a mapplet in the Mapplet Designer.
The Mapplet Designer contains the same design areas and functionality as the Mapping Designer. For information about using the Mapping Designer, see
Mappings
.
  1. Click
    New
    >
    Mapplets
    >
    Mapplet
    .
    The Mapplet Designer appears with an Input transformation and an Output transformation on the canvas.
  2. Specify the mapplet name and location.
    The default name for the mapplet is
    Mapplet
    followed by a sequential number.
    If the
    Explore
    page is currently active and a project or folder is selected, the default location for the asset is the selected project or folder. Otherwise, the default location is the location of the most recently saved asset.
    You can change the name or location after you save the mapping using the
    Explore
    page.
  3. Optionally, enter a description for the mapplet.
    When you use the mapplet in a Mapplet transformation, the description appears in the
    Mapplet
    tab.
  4. Configure the mapplet input.
    Input can be a Source transformation, an Input transformation, or both. If you use an Input transformation, add input fields for the fields you want to pass to the mapplet.
  5. Add transformations to the mapplet.
  6. Configure the mapplet output.
    Output can be a Target transformation, an Output transformation, or both. If you use an Output transformation, add output fields for the data you want to pass to the downstream transformation.
  7. Validate and save the mapplet.
