Adding input/output parameters

Use this procedure to add input/output parameters in a mapping. These parameters contain input or output arguments and you can drop them on a Java function, or on a Boolean function. Boolean functions should have input parameters only.

  1. Double-click a mapping to open it in the Mapper Editor.
  2. From the Core Functions pane, click and drag a function to add in your mapping.
    Note: When connecting elements, you can only drop elements where it is acceptable.
  3. From the Parameters pane, click and drag an input or output parameter to add in a function in your mapping.
  4. Right-click on a parameter and select Properties.
  5. Specify this information:

    Provide a brief description for the parameter.


    Specify a descriptive name for the parameter.

    Default value: InParameter1


    Select the data type to use. String, int, long, float, and more .

    Default value: String

  6. Select File > Save to save the parameter into your mapping.

To link an input document element to a function, or to link an output document element to a function, drag and drop the document element to the function, to create parameters. A parameter is created with the same name as the document element with a link.
