Mapping Scope

To specify the level of map objects that the Auto Map operation maps, you must configure the mapping scope.

Configure the mapping scope in the Auto Map preferences in the Map Designer.

Map only immediate items
Automatically maps the child items in the target. The child items are the items directly under the group that you selected.
Map only immediate items and groups
Automatically maps both the child items and groups in the target. On the groups, though, the process creates only functional maps, and does not map the child items that are under the group.
Map all descendants
Maps all levels of the child items and groups in the target. Creates the functional maps. Maps the children of the functional maps and continues mapping lower levels until there is nothing else for the process to map. This mapping scope option is the default configuration.
