Target transformation mapping example

An organization uses Salesforce to manage customer data. To master the customer data, the organization wants to load the customer data to the Business 360 data store. Use the Business 360 Connector to read data from Salesforce and write data to the Business 360 data store.
    1. Create a Business 360 connection.
    2. Create a connection.
    3. Create a mapping.
    4. Add a Source transformation, and specify a name and description in the general properties.
    5. Select the connection to the Salesforce application.
    6. On the Target tab, perform the following steps:
    1. a. In the Connection field, select the Business 360 connection.
    2. b. In the Source Type field, select Single Object.
    3. c. In the Objects field, select the target object to which you want to write data.
    4. The following image shows the target assets:
    5. d. To view the list of supported business applications, on the left pane, select Home.
    6. e. To view the list of available assets, select the asset type under an application. For example, if you select Customer 360 and Business Entities on the left pane, you can view the list of available business entities on the right pane from which you can select the required target object.
    7. f. To view the list of custom assets, on the left pane, expand Custom Assets, and select an asset type.
    8. The custom assets are grouped based on the asset type.
      The list of custom assets appears on the right pane. For example, if you choose Hierarchies, the list of hierarchies appears on the right pane.
      Note: You cannot map multiple source objects to a hierarchy. If you map multiple source objects to a hierarchy, an error appears when you map input fields to target fields on the Field Mapping tab. Ensure that you create separate mappings for each source object to the hierarchy. If you change the name of the custom business entity or delete it in the Business 360 Console, the existing mappings with references to that custom business entity will fail when you run the mapping.
    9. g. To select relationships within hierarchies, expand Custom Assets, and then click Hierarchies. Select the required relationship from the right pane.
    10. Note: To specify relationships within hierarchies as the target object, ensure that you specify unique display names for each relationship within a hierarchy. Don't select the relationship from the Relationships folder under Custom Assets.
    7. On the Field Mapping tab, select elements that you want to map to the target fields.
    The following image shows the input fields on the left pane in a hierarchical format and the target fields on the right pane:
    You can map the relevant input fields to the target fields. If you have multiple source objects mapped to a target transformation, you must define primary and foreign keys. For further information, see Primary and foreign key .
    Note: Map the root fields first before mapping the fields within field groups.
    8. Go to Target > Parameters Panel > Input-Output Parameters, and create a parameter.
    The input-output parameter is internally mapped to the job instance ID. When you run an ingress or export job, Cloud Application Integration process passes the job instance ID to the input-output parameter in Cloud Data Integration. Based on the defined taskflows, the job is executed. If you do not define the input-output parameter for the Target transformation in Cloud Data Integration, your job fails.
    9. Draw links to connect the Source transformation to the Target transformation.
    10. Save the mapping.
