Applying complex data transformations

Reference Data Transform rules to apply complex data transformations on the top-level data page to modify the incoming data record. For example, when you have a flat data record that contains the Accound_ID and Customer_ID properties you can apply a data transform to construct an Account record that contains the Customer record as an embedded page.

  1. In a data flow, click the Plus icon on a shape, and select Data Transform.
  2. Double-click the Data transform shape to configure it.
  3. In the Name field, enter a name for the shape.
  4. Select a data transform that you want to reference in this shape.
    Note: You can reference instances of the Data Transform rule that belong to the Applies To class of the input data pages or to a parent class of the Applies To class.
  5. Click Submit.
