Visio template revisions

You can revise a Visio template that is used by a
mapping
task.
If you edit a Visio template that is already used by a
mapping
task,
Data Integration
performs the following actions based on the changes that you make:
  • When you change the template XML file,
    Data Integration
    lists the
    mapping
    tasks that use the Visio template and offers to keep or delete the tasks.
    If you choose to delete the tasks,
    Data Integration
    deletes all listed tasks immediately. You cannot undo this action.
  • When you change other elements of the Visio template, such as the input control or default value for a template parameter,
    Data Integration
    applies the changes to existing tasks that use the template.
    If you have tasks that already use the Visio template, review the listed tasks after making uploadant changes to the template. If the changes are not compatible with an existing task configuration, the task may fail at run time.
    If you want to make signification changes to the Visio template and already have tasks that use the existing template, you might want to upload the template again and configure the changes with the newly-uploaded template.
