Rules and guidelines for mapping configuration

Use the following rules and guidelines when you configure a mapping:
  • A mapping does not need a Source transformation if it includes a Mapplet transformation and the mapplet includes a source.
  • You can configure multiple branches within the data flow. If you create more than one data flow, configure the flow run order.
  • Connect all transformations to the data flow.
  • You can merge multiple upstream branches through a passive transformation only when all transformations in the branches are passive.
  • When you rename fields, update conditions and expressions that use the fields. Conditions and expressions, such as a Lookup condition or expression in an Expression transformation, do not inherit field name changes.
  • To use a connection parameter and a specific object, use a connection and object in the mapping. When the mapping is complete, you can replace the connection with a parameter.
  • When you use a parameter for an object, use parameters for all conditions or field mappings in the data flow that use fields from the object.
