Mapping Flows

Mapping Flows are mapping objects that contain specific instructions on how to route, map, or otherwise handle units of input data.

A Mapping Flow typically contains the following:

  • An input object
  • One or more output objects
  • A Block container to perform mapping of message content or routing
  • Business Documents to hold input and output message data for Mappings
  • Events to detect content and parsing errors

You can create a Mapping Flow in a DML Mapping Project by:

  • Using the specific wizard (see Create Mapping Flows)
  • Generating a Mapping Flow from a Business Document or Map
  • Generating a Mapping Flow when creating an XML to EDIFACT Mapping
  • Importing an existing Mapping Flow from a deployment package (see Import a deployment package)
