Configuring the Data Transformation Maps
Configuring the integration objects associates the fields in an internal integration object with the message elements in an external integration object. The result is the creation of the DTE map that will be used by the data transformation engine.
All entries created by the wizard are stored in the Integration Object User Properties of the Dispatcher Map.
In the example, there are four maps that need to be configured to have a complete outbound/inbound transaction route available. Each one can be found in the user properties entry in the ACORDDispMap dispatcher map integration object.
The integration object for the server entry is ACORD/InsuranceSvcRq/PersAutoPolicyAddRq, and it has two maps, as follows:
- PersAutoPolicyAddRq_ErqIRqMapIn (server receiving an inbound request)
- PersAutoPolicyAddRq_IrsERsMapOut (server sending an inbound response)
The integration object for the client is ACORD/InsuranceSvcRs/PersAutoPolicyAddRs, and it has two maps, as follows:
- PersAutoPolicyAddRs_IRqERqMapOut (client sending an outbound request)
- PersAutoPolicyAddRs_ErsIRsMapIn (client receiving an outbound response)
If you wish, you can change the map name in the Dispatcher Map list, then use the new name for the DTE map.
To configure the DTE map
- Start Siebel Financial Services.
- Open the Integration Administration view.
From the application-level menu, choose View>Site Map>Integration Administration.
- Click Data Map Editor, and in the Integrated Object Map applet, create a new map.
- Name. This name must be the same as the DTE map name created by the wizard and stored in the Dispatcher Map list.
- Select the Internal Integration Object and the External Integration Object.
These objects have been created during the process of creating the integration objects with the wizard. Keep the following definitions in mind:
- Source Object. For an message that will be sent out, the source object is the internal integration object; for a message that will be received, the source object is the external integration object.
- Target Object. For a message that will be sent out, the target object is the external integration object; for a message that will be received, the target object is the internal integration object.
- Map the source components and the target components.
- Map fields to fields.
