Input field selection

Input field selection

Configure the input field selection in a Hierarchy Parser transformation to define which field in the upstream transformation to map to the input field in the Hierarchy Parser transformation.
Configure the
Input Field Selection
tab of the
Properties
panel.
You can configure the following input field selection options:
Automap
Links fields with matching names.
You can map fields in the following ways:
  • Exact Field Name.
    Data Integration
    matches fields of the same name.
  • Smart Map.
    Data Integration
    matches fields with similar names. For example, if you have an incoming field
    Employee_Name
    and an hierarchical schema input field
    Emp_Name
    ,
    Data Integration
    automatically links the
    Employee_Name
    with the
    Emp_Name
    field.
You can use both Exact Field Name and Smart Map in the same field mapping. For example, use Exact Field Name to match fields with the same name and then use Smart Map to map fields with similar names.
You can undo all automapped field mappings by clicking
Automap
Undo Automap
. To unmap a single field, select the field to unmap and click
Actions
Unmap
.
Data Integration
highlights newly mapped fields. For example, when you use Exact Field Name,
Data Integration
highlights the mapped fields. If you then use Smart Map,
Data Integration
only highlights the fields mapped using Smart Map.
Options
Controls the fields that appear in the Incoming Fields list. Show all fields, unmapped fields, or mapped fields. Determine how field names appear in the input field list. Use technical field names or labels.
