Mapping inventory

If you select an object from the search results and add it to a mapping,
Data Integration
adds the object to the mapping inventory. Select an object from the inventory, and add it to the mapping as a source, target, or lookup object.
The following image shows the mapping inventory:
The inventory panel lists the Enterprise Data Catalog objects that have been added to the mapping. In this image, three tables have been added to the inventory. The Source tab on the Source transformation is selected, showing the "Select an object from the inventory" icon.
  1. Inventory icon. Shows and hides the Inventory panel.
  2. "Select an object from the inventory" icon in the transformation Properties panel. Selects an object from the inventory as the source, target, or lookup object.
Each mapping has its own inventory. Each object that you add to the mapping inventory stays in the inventory until you delete it.
To add an object from the inventory as a source, target, or lookup object, select the Source, Target, or Lookup transformation and click
Select an object from the inventory
on the tab where you configure the connection. Then select the object from the inventory.
If you enable CLAIRE recommendations in the Mapping Designer,
Data Integration
highlights the
Recommendations
tab when there is a new recommendation for objects in the inventory. For example, if an object in the inventory contains sensitive data such as credit card numbers, and you add it to the mapping as a source, target, or lookup object,
Data Integration
highlights the
Recommendations
tab. When you open the recommendations, CLAIRE might recommend that you add a Data Masking transformation to the mapping to mask the sensitive data.
