Create maps to specify sources and targets

About this task

After defining data objects and their properties in the schema designer, you specify the source of the input and the target of the output in the map designer. Sources and targets are specified with map cards. Each map can have none or more input cards, and one or more output cards.

To create maps: in the Integration Platform Development perspective:


  1. Create a map source file.
  2. Create required executable map(s) in the map source file.
  3. Create an input card that represents your input data.
  4. Create an output card that represents your desired output.
  5. In the output card map rules, specify the logic necessary to transform the input data to the desired output data.
  6. Build the map.
  7. Run the map.
