Documentations of tMDMBulkLoad

Hello,

 

I am looking for details about three functionalities of the component tMDMBulkLoad. Could you please tell me the use of :

- "Validate" : it means that if we uncheck the box we can insert any king of data in a Datamodel ? String instead of Integer, more columns, ... 

- "Insert only" : "check if data already exist" => Is the check only made with the "Key" columns of an entity ?

- "Use Transaction" : why choosing another connection ? The component tMDMBulkLoad already have his own connection. Is it to use tMDMCommit or tMDMRollback after the component ?

 

Thanks !

Re: Documentations of tMDMBulkLoad

Hello,

 

No, I already read the description of the component, that is why I am asking for details :

 

Validate : "Select this check box to validate the data you want to write onto the MDM server against validation rules defined for the current data model."
=> It means that if we uncheck the box we can insert any king of data in a Datamodel ? String instead of Integer, more columns, ...


Insert only : "Select this check box to skip the step of checking whether the data records to be inserted already exist on the MDM server"
=> Is the checking only made with the "Key" columns of an entity ? If the "Key" already exist or not ?


Use Transaction : "Select this check box then, in the Component List, click an existing connection component which will be used to commit the transaction."
=> So to have transaction, we have to select another connection because we can't tick "Use an existing connection" on this component ?

 

Thanks
