Configuring a mapping with an SAP Table source

Use the Data Integration Mapping Designer to configure a mapping and describe the data flow between the source and target. You can also configure filter and sort options, advanced source properties, key range partitioning, and transformations in the mapping.
    1. To create a mapping, click Data Integration > New > Mappings. Select Mapping and click Create.
    2. Enter a name and description for the mapping, and click OK.
    You can use alphanumeric characters and underscores (_) in the mapping name.
    3. To configure a source, on the Transformation palette, click Source.
    4. In the Properties panel, on the General tab, enter a name and description.
    5. Click the Source tab and configure source details.
    6. Specify the source type. You can choose one of the following options:
    7. Click Query Options in the Source tab to specify any filter and sort options for the SAP object.
    8. Click Advanced to specify the advanced source properties.
    9. To add or remove source fields, to update field metadata, or to synchronize fields with the source, click the Fields tab.
    Note: You can edit the type, precision, and scale in the SAP table source object metadata.
    10. To configure key range partitioning, click the Partitions tab.
    1. a. In the Partition Key field, select the required partition key from the list.
    2. b. In the Key Ranges section, click Add New Key Range to define the number of partitions and the key ranges based on which the Secure Agent must partition data.
    3. Use a blank value for the start range to indicate the minimum value. Use a blank value for the end range to indicate the maximum value.
    11. To add a transformation, on the Transformation palette, click the transformation name. Or, drag the transformation onto the mapping canvas.
    1. a. On the General tab, you can enter a name and description for the transformation.
    2. b. Draw a link to connect the previous transformation to the transformation.
    3. When you link transformations, the downstream transformation inherits the incoming fields from the previous transformation.
      For a Joiner transformation, draw a master link and a detail link.
    4. c. To preview fields, configure the field rules, or rename fields, click Incoming Fields.
    5. d. Configure additional transformation properties, as needed.
    6. The properties that you configure vary based on the type of transformation you create.
    7. e. To add another transformation, repeat these steps.
    12. To add a Target transformation, on the Transformation palette, click Target.
    1. a. On the General tab, you can enter a name and description.
    2. b. Draw a link to connect the previous transformation to the Target transformation.
    3. c. Click the Target tab and configure target details. If necessary, configure the advanced target properties.
    4. Target details and advanced target properties appear based on the connection type. For more information, see Transformations.
    5. d. To preview fields, configure the field rules, or rename fields, click Incoming Fields.
    6. e. Click Field Mapping and map the fields that you want to write to the target.
    7. f. To add another Target transformation, repeat these steps.
    13. Save and run the mapping or save and create a mapping task.
