Selecting the rules to create

You can optionally select the rules that you want the Auto Map operation to create.

About this task

After you click Next in the Select the options to map source to target page of the Auto Map wizard, the Select rules to create page opens. It lists the source and target objects that meet the matching criteria that are specified on the Select the options to map source to target page.

You can run the Auto Map operation with the default settings or make the following optional changes from that page:
  • Change the selection of the target objects for which you want the Auto Map operation to create rules.
  • Edit the proposed rules.
  • Rename the functional maps.

You click Finish on that page to run the Auto Map operation and exit the wizard.

Procedure

To change the target object selections and the rules that you want the Auto Map operation to create for those objects, do the following optional steps:

  1. Change the selection of the target objects for which you want the Auto Map operation to create rules.
    1. Select the check box of the target objects for which you want the Auto Map operation to create rules. The default is that the target objects listed in that page are all selected. Therefore, you can clear the check box of those target objects for which you do not want the Auto Map operation to create rules. Another option is to clear the check box of a target object that is a group and then make your selections. The result is that those target objects that you did not select, are listed in the output with no rule mapped to it.
  2. Edit the proposed rules.
    1. Select one of these target objects for which there is an i indicator that is displayed between the target object and its rule. The information (i) indicator signals to you that there are more rule proposals that you can optionally select for the object.
    2. Click Edit rule proposals to open the Rule Proposals window in which you can change the rule selections that IBM Transformation Extender proposed as a result of the matching criteria.
  3. Rename the functional maps.
    1. Select one of the target objects for which there is a rule that contains a functional map.
    2. Click Rename map to open the Rename Map window in which you can change the functional map name.
  4. Click Finish to run the Auto Map operation and exit the Auto Map wizard.

Results

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.
