Thread: View data component

  1. #1

    Default View data component

    I have been trying out open source version of PDI, i feel that an option "View data" is missing . To be precise, in other etl tools , we have the option of viewing the data directly from the input /output components by just right clicking and chosing view data option. Also there exist an option to place a watche on any flow, which helps us much in debugging.
    Please let me know if these features exist in kettle.

    Run your transformation and click right on a step. Then use row sniff testing to see the rows that enter or exit a step.

    Right clicking on a step may help:

    This is called Preview.
