Parse transformation configuration

When you configure a Parse transformation in a mapping, you first select the parse asset that contains the logic to include in the transformation. Next, you map an incoming field on the transformation to the target field that parse asset specifies.
To configure the transformation, complete the following tasks:
    1. Connect the Parse transformation to a Source transformation or other upstream object.
    2. On the Parse tab, select the parse asset that you want to include in the transformation.
    The following image shows the options that you use to select the parse asset:
    The image shows the Parse tab of the transformation. The tab properties include a Select button that you can use to add a parse asset to the transformation.
    3. On the Incoming Fields tab, verify the incoming fields.
    By default, the transformation inherits all incoming fields from any connected upstream object in the mapping. You can define a field rule to limit or rename the incoming fields.
    4. On the Field Mapping tab, connect an incoming field to the target field.
    The parse asset input names might reflect the name of an input field. If so, you can use the Automap options to connect the fields.
    5. Verify the output field properties on the Output Fields tab.
    To learn more about the transformation output fields, see Parse transformation output fields.
    6. You can optionally rename the Parse transformation and add a description on the General tab. You can also update the tracing level for the transformation on the Advanced tab. The default tracing level is Normal.
Example 4. Synchronizing data quality assets
If you update an asset in Data Quality after you add it to a transformation, you may need to synchronize the asset version in the transformation with the latest version.
To synchronize the asset versions, open the transformation in the mapping and select the transformation name in the properties panel. For example, in a Cleanse transformation select Cleanse in the properties panel. If synchronization is necessary, Data Integration displays a message that prompts you to synchronize the assets.
When you synchronize the asset versions, Data Integration may prompt you to propagate the field attributes of the current asset to other assets in the mapping. Data Integration may display the prompt if the current asset originates in an earlier version of Data Quality.
You select the assets to which to propagate the field attributes. You can select multiple assets and propagate the attributes in a single operation.
Note: Field propagation occurs by default for assets that you create in the current version of Data Quality.
