Hi,

DataMigrater allow to set variable within the process to select columns or table. my objective is for user to input parameters to select which table and which column(s) to do transformation into which target(there is minimum 3 input from user).
any ideas or thought ?

This sounds like a "Self Service" DM application. There is nothing out of the box to do this that I am aware of.


Thank you for using Focal Point!

I checked with product management and this would be considered a new feature request.

Hi Chuck,

Similar to Self Service, but it more like able to get parameter from another source into 'variable' within DataMigrater.

eg. User input 3 parameter, and save or store into a file or a text-file, and then able to get those parameter within that file to pass into variable to do ETL.

the thing is that I don't want hard written variables that are choose Table and Column(s).
so no other way?

This is completely untested and just an idea. If WebFOCUS is on the same machine as DataMigrator create a WebFOCUS html form to prompt the user for that info and create a hold file saved in an app folder DataMigrator has access to. Then create a flow that is triggered by a file listener. In that flow you can have a stored procedure as the first object that reads that file and creates the variables you want. But the big thing is DataMigrator flows are dependent on master files and specific SQL logic so I don't know how it will work for you. Just wanted to give you an idea to try though.

Hi Chuck,

this is great idea, I'll give a try for File listener, but in the same time, need to know if anybody had any other similar experienced would be great to share with?

Thanks,

Its been a while since I used DM and now I use Informatica Cloud (IICS). The way they handle passing parameter is that Tasks can have configuration files associated with them. In these files variables can be set to be used in a task.
We change the content of the parameter file if we want to change a variable value. In our case the table schema name is a variable that is used in a Select statement. i.e. SELECT ID FROM $SCHEMA.MYTABLE

So can't DM have a fex with -SET & commands in it which is called prior to the Process Flow being run that can be used it the flow?
