Creating a field rule

Creating a field rule

Configure field rules on the
Incoming Fields
tab of the
Properties
panel in the Mapping Designer.
  1. On the
    Incoming Fields
    tab, in the
    Field Rules
    area, insert a row for the rule based on the order in which the rules must run. In the
    Actions
    column for a rule that you want to run before or after the new rule, select either
    Insert above
    or
    Insert below
    .
  2. To specify whether the rule includes or excludes fields, from the
    Operator
    column, choose either
    Include
    or
    Exclude
    .
  3. In the
    Field Selection Criteria
    column, choose one of the following methods:
    • To rename all of the incoming fields in bulk, select
      All Fields
      .
    • To apply the rule to the fields that you specify, select
      Named Fields
      .
    • To apply the rule based on the data type of each field, select
      Fields by Data Types
      .
    • To apply the rule to all fields that contain a specific prefix, suffix, or pattern, select
      Fields by Text or Pattern
      .
  4. To provide the field selection details, in the
    Detail
    column, click the
    Configure
    or
    Rename
    link. The
    Rename
    link appears if the field selection criteria is
    All Fields
    .
  5. In the
    Configure Field Rules
    dialog box, select the fields to apply to the rule, based on the chosen field selection criteria. Alternatively, click
    Parameters
    to add a parameter so fields can be selected in the
    mapping
    task.
  6. To rename fields, click the
    Rename Fields
    tab and choose to rename fields individually or in bulk.
    If you want to rename all fields, you must rename in bulk. If you want to rename fields in bulk by pattern, you can create a parameter to specify the pattern in the
    mapping
    task.
  7. To ensure that the field rules run in a logical order, in the
    Field Rules
    area, review the order in which the rules display. In the
    Included Fields
    and
    Excluded Fields
    lists, review the results of the rules. Move field rules to the appropriate location if required.
  8. To delete a rule, in the
    Actions
    column, select
    Delete
    .
