Parameter display customization

Parameter display customization

You can add one or more steps or pages to the
mapping
task wizard to customize the order in which a task developer configures template parameters. You can configure the parameter display order when you upload or edit a Visio template.
When you upload a Visio template, the defined source and target parameters appear on the Sources or Targets steps by default. You can move other connection template parameters to these steps. All other template parameters appear in the Other Parameters step by default.
You can create steps in the
mapping
task wizard to group similar parameters together. For example, you can group the field mapping parameters into one step, and the filter parameters into another step.
You can also create steps in the
mapping
task wizard to order logically dependent parameters. The task developer must then configure parameters in a certain order. For example, a Visio template includes a parameterized mapplet and a field mapping. Configure the mapplet parameter to appear on a step before the field mapping parameter. This ensures that the field mapping parameter displays the mapplet input and output fields.
