    Exclamation Generating Web forms for dynamic User Feedback in Kettle

    Dear All,

    I am new to Kettle. I have a use case where I need to take user input for each row passing through the transformation.

    Is there a way to generate a web form dynamically (in the middle of a job while a job is running) with the data passed from previous steps?

    All the data rows must be displayed in a web form and take the user input as yes/no for each row.

    Example: The web form might look the like below:

    EmployeeNameSrc1 | EmployeeNameSrc2 | AreTheyTheSameEmployess
    Ruta | Ruta | Yes/No
    John | Johny | Yes/No

    The field 'AreTheyTheSameEmployess' can take input yes/no (displayed as a drop down for the user to select).

    Thank you for the suggestions in advance.

    Are you confusing dataflow and workflow tools?
    Kettle is about dataflow, but you describe a workflow.
    Just asking ...
    So long, and thanks for all the fish.

    I agree kettle is about data flow but to make sure that right data is populated finally into the database, I need user feedback for each row.

    Could you please suggest other possible ways in the kettle to achieve it?

    Thank you for your reply.

    Kettle has no direct support for interaction with a user, but nobody will keep you from sending a web form generated in your transformation (using the XML steps) to a local server, I guess.
    You may run into a response timeout, though.
    Is that what's on your mind?

    Thank you for your advice.

    I have used "add XML (transform)" and "XML output" but while running the complete flow, there aren't any web browser opening. I just get an XML file with data in my folders at the end.

    Could you please state a little more detail on how to use the XML steps.

    Yes, I would like to generate a web form then get user feedback and lastly depending on the feedback load data into my database.

    Thank you.
