4.4.4.1. Viewing and selecting mapping rules

An icon (chain mark) shows, at a glance, all the fields that are used in the transformation.

To see how a field is used in the transformation, you can simply click on it.

Click on mapped field

If you click on a node that is already used in the transformation, the nodes involved in the transformation rule are clearly showed on the screen. The formula bar will show the transformation formula, and allow to edit it. For more information about how to edit a transformation formula, see the section about how to edit formulas..

The lines enable you to immediately see all the involved nodes, even when they are combined in a formula.

If you clicked on a field that is not used in the mapping, you will just be notified of it, and enabled to initiate a new mapping rule for it.

Iterate through mappings..

It is also possible to iterate through all mappings using the arrows at the top right of the target tree zone.

Mapping iteration

Figure 4.162. Mapping iteration


Starting from the currently selected node in the target tree (or at the top of the tree if no node is selected), the right arrow finds and selects the next mapped node. Same way as the left arrow does the previous mapped node.
