Using a file list in a Source transformation

Using a file list in a Source transformation

To use a file list in a Source transformation, create the text file, batch file, or shell script that creates the file list. Then configure the Source transformation to use the file list.
  1. Create the text file, batch file, or shell script that creates the file list and install it locally to the Secure Agent.
  2. In the Mapping Designer, select the Source transformation.
  3. On the
    Source
    tab, select a flat file connection.
  4. To use a manually created file list, perform the following steps:
    1. In the
      Source Type
      field, select
      File List
      .
    2. In the
      Object
      field, select the text file that contains the file list.
    3. On the
      Fields
      tab, verify the incoming fields for the Source transformation.
      Data Integration
      extracts source fields from the first file in the file list. If the source fields are not correct, you can add or remove fields.
  5. To use a file list that is generated from a command, perform the following steps:
    1. In the
      Source Type
      field, select
      Command
      .
    2. In the
      Sample Object
      field, select the sample file from which
      Data Integration
      extracts source fields.
      You can use one of the files you use to generate the file list as the sample file or select a different file.
    3. In the
      Command
      field, enter the command that you use to generate the file list, for example,
      /home/dsmith/flatfile/parts/parts.sh
      .
    4. On the
      Fields
      tab, verify the incoming fields for the Source transformation.
      If the source fields are not correct, you can add or remove fields, or click the
      Source
      tab and select a different sample file.
  6. Optionally, to write the source file name to each target row, click the
    Fields
    tab, and enable the
    Add Currently Processed Filename field
    option.
    The CurrentlyProcessedFileName field is added to the fields table.
