The distinguished name converter transformation is used to convert a single valued, or multi-valued field into a collection of distinguished names.
This transformation can be used to accomplish the following:
- Creating reference values for items that are just present in list fields, such as student numbers
This transformation adds a single target multivalued distinguished name field based on a defined Distinguished Name template.
The distinguished name converter transformation requires the following by way of configuration:
|Input||The source field for the DN. If this source is a multivalue, a DN will be generated for each value. If this source is a single value, only one DN will be generated.|
|Target||The name of the field to write all the distinguished names to.|
|Single Valued||Causes the transformation to return only a single value.|
|Skip Missing||In cases where a value is not available, a distinguished name is not generated.|
The distinguished name template describing the process used to generate the distinguished names for the Input value. If the input is a multivalue, references to that field will result in a single value:
e.g. if the Input is Members, then a DN template of:
During the change detection process, a change will be flagged if the Members field is updated in the base or relational connector.
