Thread: Metadata Injection Step configuration

  1. #1

    Default Metadata Injection Step configuration

    Hi, I'm trying to configure metadata injection step, but can't add more entries to "Target injection step, key" column. I thought it happens automatically when you specify the sub - transformation but no luck. I have one parent ktr with "Data Grid" and "ETL Metadata Injection" and another trans with only "Input File".

    Using PDI 4.2.1

    Obviously not all steps support meta injection, but where i can find a list to the ones that has this "feature", or the source code is the only reference?

    Hi Matt,
    since there are few steps on the Wiki that are not up-to-date (Calculator Step), is it possible for anyone who is registered to amend/add some wki pages or do we need to register again?

    Hi Mick,

    As far as I can tell, anyone can update the wiki pages.
    We're going over all the steps listed here: http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/EAI/...egration+Steps
    I hope we'll have all steps documented for the 4.3 release next year :-)

    Any suggestions on the best way to dynamically add filenames and fields into "Text File Input" step until PDI 4.4 comes out?

    I need to load files not knowing the filename or field layout until runtime. These files are loaded to a MS SQL database table that is also not known until runtime.

    "ETL MetaInject" does a great job with "CSV Input File" I'd love to use "Text File Input" because it seems to handle errors while loading much better than "CSV File Input".

    Using PDI 4.2.1

    Here is the list of supported steps:

    And here is how you implement functionality in existing steps or step plugins:

    By the way, the "CSV Input" step does indeed support error handling.
