Import Mappings

Corinne's Note: I couldn't check this in the demo environment, so I don't know if the info on this page is still accurate. I think this page is describing a window that is different from the window that we describe on the previous page, but not 100% sure. I also think that the info on this page corresponds to Section 4: Data Mapping in the Admin Guide, but I'm also not 100% sure of that, either. If that's true, Brian, and you want me to fix this page up based on the content in the Admin Guide, then just let me know. That might be easier than trying to make sense of all of my notes on this page, as well as assessing the content.

You can use the mapping window, accessible from the Run Data Feeds window window, to edit mapping or to correct mapping issues. Corinne's Note: Seems like we need some sort of intro statement here.

You can access Use one of the following actions to open the mapping window in the following two ways:

  1. By right click menu on the Data Feed adapters list Right-click the Data Adapter under Run and select Edit Current Mapping. Corinne's Note: I took the preceding content from the Admin Guide.
  2. During the import, run by activating Show Mapping Issues slide bar. Move the Show Mapping Issues slide bar to the right to activate this action, and then run the data feed import process. Corinne's Note: "During the import" suggests to me that you activate the Show Mapping Issues slide bar while the import process is running. Is that true? I've re-worded the sentence on the assumption that you activate that slide bar before running the import.

Once a new import data feed (Corinne's Note: I'm assuming we're talking about a data feed, but maybe an import feed is something else?) has been created, all of the initial mapping will have to be done in the mapping window during the first import in Mapping window. For existing adapters, the mapping window reflects the currently-appliedconfigured mapping. You can add new mappings could be added during the import run.

Data Feed Mapping Window

This window is broken out by specific to either center, staff, or media type mapping, depending on the data feed that you selected. Corinne's Note: I assume "broken out by" means "is specific to", but correct me if I'm wrong.

Map Identifiers

  1. Select the identifiers in the left column.
  2. Select the mapping options in the next window and add it each selected option to the mapped list by clicking the upper right-facing arrow.
    Once an identifier has been mapped, it will appear to display in the mapped identifiers list on the left. To unmap remove the configured mapping from an identifier, select it, and then hit click the lower left-facing arrow.
  3. Once you complete the mapping, click Save Changes on the bottom right of the window.

Show Mapping Issues

Corinne's Note: This page was converted previously (not by me). This section was not in the Admin Help source file that I had for the previous release (8.5), so the currently-published version of this doc does not include this section. However, I went back and checked an older version of the Help (4.2) and it did include this section. I assume it should be here? I'm not sure why it was not in the source file that I had downloaded from AJ's laptop. AJ had done the original conversion of this page, so she was obviously working from a file that included this section.

This function The Show Mapping Issues toggle is located at the top of the Run Data Feeds window. When it is toggled on if turned on by sliding (slide the button to the right), allows the user to you can update the mapping configuration if there are any mapping issues during the import. When turned on, the import process stops when there is an issue and shows the mapping window one-by-one reports the error. Corinne's Note: So, how does this work exactly? The import process finds an issue and stops and reports the error to you in a mapping window? Do you have to fix the error for the import process to resume, or can you skip it?

When the Show Mapping Issues toggle is toggled off (Slidingthe button has been moved to the left) turns off this option and, the import process will not stop during the import process to alert you to issues, but it will give you an overall group status message in the Details report after the import has completed.

The Imported Data button allows the user to lets you select which metrics from in the import file to be displayed.

Corinne's Note: The following content seems to be the same as the procedure above (in the "Data Feed Mapping Window" section). Maybe the content in this section should be combined with the content in the preceding section, and the redundancies removed??</font.

To map an identifier, select the identifier in the left column and a mapping window will display, which offers to give the user mapping options that are dependent depending on the type of mapping that you are configuring is being worked on.

In the mapping window, you can add a new mapping identifier by selecting the green plus button.

Once an identifier has been mapped, that metric will shift from the unmapped left column to the mapped right column.

To remove a currently-mapped identifier, click the identifier from the right column and select either the Not Mapped or Ignored button (Corinne's Note: We don't mention the "Not Mapped" or "Ignored" button in the procedure above - do they exist?) and that identifier will shift back to the unmapped left column.

Once the mapping has been completed, select the Save Changes button on the bottom right of the window.
