Source object

Source object

Select the source object for the Source transformation on the
Source
tab of the Properties panel.
The properties that you configure for the source object vary based on the connection type and the mapping type. Your organization's licenses can also determine the source properties that appear when the Source transformation is part of a mapplet.
The following image shows the
Source
tab for a relational source:
The Source tab for a relational source contains the following source details: Connection, Source Type, and Object. It also contains query options and advanced properties. The fields on the Source tab vary based on the connection type.
  1. Source details where you configure the source connection, source type, and source object.
  2. Select the source object from the mapping inventory.
You can select a source in the following ways:
Select the connection and source object.
In the
Details
area, select the source connection, source type, and source object. You can also create a new connection.
The source type varies based on the connection type. For example, for relational sources you can select a single object, multiple related objects, or an SQL query. For flat file sources, you can select a single object, file list, or file list command.
Select the source object from the mapping inventory.
If your organization administrator has configured Enterprise Data Catalog integration properties, and you have added objects to the mapping from the
Data Catalog
page, you can select the source object from the
Inventory
panel. If your organization administrator has not configured Enterprise Data Catalog integration properties or you have not performed data catalog discovery, the
Inventory
panel is empty. For more information about data catalog discovery, see
Mappings
.
Use a parameter.
You can use input parameters to define the source connection and source object when you run the mapping task. For more information about parameters, see
Mappings
.
