Building maps

After you have entered map rules in an executable map, created necessary functional maps, and entered map rules for the desired output data objects, the next step is to build the executable map. A compiled map file is created when no build errors occur when the executable map, and all referenced maps, are analyzed.

An executable map has a data source or target specified for each of its cards. Executable maps are built. Functional maps are not built.

Data sources and targets specified for an executable map are defaults built into the compiled map file. Data sources and targets, and other map settings, can be overridden from the Integration Flow Designer or when a map is run using the Command Server.
