Including a static input file in a compiled map

You can include a static input file in a compiled map to reduce processing overhead in maps that run multiple times.

Before you begin

To include a file in a map, specify the static file adapter and the file name on the input card before you compile the map. The file must exist at the time when the map compiles, and must be less that 10 MB in size.

Note: No new-line conversion or character-set conversion takes place in the file when the map runs on any platform.


  1. In the input card properties, specify GET > Source > Static File.
  2. Specify the name of the static file in the FilePath.
  3. Specify the rest of the card properties as needed. For static files, the OnSuccess property is always Keep and the OnFailure property is always Rollback.
