Data Mapper - Running a Test Run

Data Mapper - Running a Test Run

 

6.4.1

 

When editting a Mapper Map; and wanting to do a 'Test Run', if the segment you are wanting to view is referencing a context variable; it fires an error; because at design time; the context file and vars haven't been loaded.

 

Is there a way to load context vars for doing [Test Run] at design time?

I am familiar with using Database Other Set Path, and adding a Jar to access code routine functions; which is similar; but npt the same.

 

Any suggestions appreciated.

Re: Data Mapper - Running a Test Run

Hi,

 

I opened a case a few months ago to be able to enter context variables in mapper perspective so that we can test a map.

 

They opened a JIRA "Mapper Perspective needs access to set Context Variables so they are Testable within the Mapper Perspective" for it.

 

Reference is https://jira.talendforge.org/browse/TDM-4750.

 

I don't know what is the status as it is now private.
