NOTE: Basic rules are managed in Target Design. They are not edited or submitted in Map. The mapping for a field with a basic rule displays in Map with an Action of Rule. Refer to Add a Basic Rule for more information.
NOTE: The SOURCE TABLE and SOURCE FIELD fields should be empty when saving a mapping with a Rule action. Include the Source table and field in the Rule SQL field on the Vertical View of the Field Mappings page.
To create a field mapping using the Rule action on the Field Mappings page:
- Select the field to be mapped.
- Select the Rule icon from the ACTION list box.
- Click Save;a confirmation message displays.
NOTE: A user must create the SQL and store it in the Rule SQL field on the Vertical View for the selected field mapping.
- Click the Vertical View icon for the field mapping.
- Enter the rule in the Rule SQL field.
- Click Save.
- Close the Vertical View.
- Click the Submit icon on the Page toolbar.
NOTE: If the Auto Gen Level on the Automation page’s Vertical View is set to Off for the Target, this rule is not built in SQL. If the Auto Gen Level is set to ON but the Auto Generate Rule check box on the Automation SQL Field Mappings page’s Vertical View is unchecked, then the rule is not built.
The mapping must be approved by a Developer on the Mapping Approval page for documentation purposes and to help track progress of the data migration project. Refer to Mapping Approvals and Assign Developers to a Target or Source for more information.
Once the mapping has been submitted, the Action, Source Table, Source Field and Default Value fields do not allow updates until one of the following events occurs:
- The Developer clicks Reject on the Mapping Approval page
- The Mapper clicks Reset on the Field Mappings page
NOTE: When a user clicks Reset, Mapping By, Submitted By, Created By and Approved By field will be reset to NULL values. The Rejected By field does not update and contains the user ID of the Developer who rejected the mapping on the Mapping Approval page. The Mapper can contact the Developer with any questions.
Once the fields allow update, edit them, click Save, and click the Submit icon on the Page toolbar. This updated mapping is sent to the Developer for review on the Mapping Approval page.
