MAPPING TEMPLATE: PowerCenter mapping that creates a table controlled parameter file

The parameter file mapping template describes a technique that allows users to create and maintain values in a table and automatically loads the parameter file with this two-stream process.
The first path updates the variable table by retrieving the latest parameter and variable values (i.e., maximum) specified for lookup to apply later in the workflow.
It also arranges the table in folder, session and parameter order. The second path formats the data from the variable table to create the parameter file.

The special functionality includes the following:

  • Manage parameter file from a table
  • Lookup values to assign to parameters
  • Lookups executed only once when same parameter occurs times (across sessions)
  • Sort parameters according to folder and session
  • Organize into Informatica parameter file format
  • Handle multiple parameters per session
  • Provide column to enable row for lookup or pass current value

Attached is a design document of the template along with the PowerCenter XML export file.
