Adding incoming fields to output groups

Adding incoming fields to output groups

You can add incoming fields to the output individually or you can add an entire input group. You can add incoming fields to an output group or to an array or struct field.
To add output fields, click the
Add
link on the
Hierarchy Processor
tab next to the incoming field or input group that you want to add.
You can add fields in the following ways based on the input field data type and the output type:
Add incoming field
Adds the selected incoming field to the selected output group or field.
You can select this option when you add incoming fields with primitive data types to the output.
Add input group
Adds all incoming fields in the group to the selected output group or field.
You can select this option when you add incoming fields with primitive data types to the output.
Add all descendants
Adds all children under the field to the output, including all arrays and structs. If the incoming field contains arrays,
Data Integration
creates a separate output group for each array.
You can select this option when you select an incoming struct or array field, and the output is relational.
Add single occurring children
Adds all single occurring children under the field to the output, including single occurring child fields that are nested under a struct. Does not add single occurring children that are nested under arrays.
You can select this option when you select an incoming struct or array field, and the output is relational.
Add primitive single occurring children
Adds all primitive single occurring children under the field to the output, including the primitive, single occurring child fields that are nested under a struct. Does not add single occurring children that are nested under arrays.
You can select this option when you select an incoming struct or array field, and the output is hierarchical.
Preserve incoming field
Preserves the hierarchical structure of the selected field in the output. For example, if you add an array of structs to the output group, then the output group contains an array of structs with the same structure.
You can select this option when you select an incoming struct or array field, and the output is hierarchical.
Flatten selected array
Flattens an array of primitives into a primitive field. Creates one output record for each element in the array.
You can select this option when you select an incoming struct or array field, and the output is hierarchical.
Add selected array as struct
Flattens an array of structs into a struct field. Creates one output record for each element the array.
You can select this option when you select an incoming struct or array field, and the output is hierarchical.
After you add the incoming fields to the output group, you can rename or delete output fields as needed.
