Target object

Target object

Select the target object for the Target transformation on the
Target
tab of the Properties panel.
The properties that you configure for the target object vary based on the connection type and the mapping type. Your organization's licenses can also determine the target properties that appear when the Target transformation is part of a mapplet.
The following image shows the
Target
tab for a flat file target:
The Target tab for a flat file target contains the following details: Connection, Target Type, Object, and Operation. It also contains advanced properties. The fields on the Target tab vary based on the connection type.
  1. Target details where you configure the target connection, target type, target object, and target operation.
  2. Select the target object from the mapping inventory.
You can select a target object in the following ways:
Select the connection and target object.
In the
Details
area, select the target connection, target type, and target object. You can create a new connection. For flat file and relational targets, you can also create the target object at run time.
If you use an existing target object, select the target from a list of target objects and link the target to the upstream transformation. If the target table changes, you must update the Target transformation to match it. If the physical target and the Target transformation do not match, the mapping fails.
If you use an existing target object for a flat file target, the existing target is overwritten when you run the
mapping
task.
Select the target 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 target 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 target connection and target object when you run the mapping task. For more information about parameters, see
Mappings
.
You must also define the target operation. The available target operations vary based on the connection type.
