Mappings

Step 6. Create a mapping task

Step 6. Create a
mapping
task

In the following procedure, you create a
mapping
task that uses the mapping that you just designed.
Now that you have a valid mapping, you can use the
mapping
task wizard to create tasks based on the mapping. Because you used parameters in the mapping, each time you run the task, you can change the parameter values. After the task runs, you have a target file that contains account information for the state that you specify in the filter condition parameter.
  1. To create a
    mapping
    task based on the mapping, while still in the Mapping Designer, click
    Actions
    and select
    New Mapping Task
    , as shown in the following image:
    The image shows the Actions menu, which includes New Mapping Task, Save, Run, Parameters Panel, and Validation Panel.
    The
    mapping
    task wizard appears.
  2. On the
    Definition
    page, enter
    mt_Accounts_by_State_task
    for the name of the task.
  3. Select the runtime environment to use to run this task. It should be the same runtime environment that you used to create and test the mapping.
    The following image shows the
    Definition
    page in the
    mapping
    task wizard:
    In the Definition page, you specify task details and select the runtime environment. You also specify the mapping to use for the task. The Definition page displays the mapping that you specify.
  4. Click
    Next
    .
    The
    Targets
    page appears. You can either select a target object from the list or click
    Create Target
    to create a new target.
  5. Click
    Next
    .
    The
    Input Parameters
    page appears and displays the
    Filter Value for State
    filter condition. You can change the value of the parameter, if desired.
  6. Click
    Next
    .
    The
    Schedule
    page appears. Because this is a tutorial and we do not want to run this
    mapping
    task on a regular basis, leave the default values.
  7. Click
    Finish
    to save the Accounts by State
    mapping
    task.
