Setting the Auto Map options

You can optionally change the default settings that originate from IBM Transformation Extender, or that you set up in the Preferences window.

About this task

After you click Next in the Automatically map source to target page of the Auto Map wizard, the Select the options to map source to target page opens. You have the option in that page to configure settings that the Auto Map operation uses for the mapping process. The updated settings however, are not saved; they are not available to subsequent runs of the Auto Map. If you want the settings to be saved, configure them in the Preferences window.

Procedure

To set the Auto Map options:

  1. In the Select the options to map source to target page of the Auto Map wizard, you can set any of the mapping process options.
  2. Click Next to open the next page in which you can select more options, or click Finish to run the Auto Map. If you returned to that page from a subsequent page and changed settings, and then clicked Next, the Map Designer window opens. You are prompted to answer Yes or No to the Do you want to run the match operation again? message.

Results

After you click Next, the Select rules to create page opens. It lists the source and target objects that meet the matching criteria that are specified on that page.
