Editing rule proposals

You can optionally change the rules that IBM Transformation Extender proposed for the target objects.

About this task

The information (i) indicator that is displayed between the target object and its rule, signals to you that there are more rule proposals that you can optionally select for the object. After you select one of these target objects for which there is an i indicator that is displayed, and click Edit rule proposals in the Select rules to create page of the Auto Map wizard, the Rule Proposals window opens. The window lists all of the source objects that are possible matches. When you select one of the source objects, the window lists all of the various proposed rules for that selected source object. You can select a source object, and one of the rules to change the rule that IBM Transformation Extender proposed.


To edit the rule proposals:

  1. In the Rule Proposals window of the Auto Map wizard, select a source object under Possible Matches. When you select the source object, the proposed rules for that object are listed under Proposed Rules.
  2. Select one of the rules.
  3. Click Finish. The Rule Proposals window closes. In the Select rules to create page, the proposed rule on the target object you selected is replaced by the rule that you selected.


The Auto Map operation automatically maps the selected source and target objects that are based on the matching properties and the proposed rules that you selected. The rule from the source is not mapped to the target for the following objects:
  • Objects that you did not select to create a rule.
  • Objects for which the mapping process did not find a match.
