Let’s say we have a data mapping and we want to make a small change to the target schema. I created a second schema that is very similar to the first. I added one field (new Tag) and removed another (InpType). I want to copy all the mappings from the xomeu_sch_xml_tabs_dlvry target to the sch_xml_updated_test target (except for the fields that were removed or added). I realize I would need to map those myself. How can I apply all the mappings from the xomeu_sch_xml_tabs_dlvry target to the sch_xml_updated_test target without having to remap each field individually? A large map would be very painful to remap if the schema has any changes to it.
If you want to overlay an old map onto a new map where the fields are same but the schema type has now changed (such as excel to txt) you can still import the original map onto the new map and roll over all the rules.
1) Pull up a new mapper
2) Load the source and target schema
3) Actions > Import Mapping and select the previously completed map and import it.
This option will import the rules and apply to this new new map.
