Definitely you can. Your data source in this case will be a dummy text or csv file and target the process. You can define the mapping as dummy mapping as well. The dummy file is only to be used for source and mapping, there is no real implication of the file other than that.
Thank you for your reply @anikdas . I would like to explain the scenario here..
My process consists of 3 actions lets call them A,B and C. Action A is an import action and imports data from a csv file. The other actions are also import actions that take data from the action A. How can I do the same through informatica hyperconnect? Should I first create a synchronization task for action A with source as the csv file and and target as the import action A and then another synchronization task with target as the process and then combine both tasks through a taskflow? ( all import actions are for importing into lists)
Hi @Shawnm , Thanks for explaining the problem statement.
In your case, if the actions are all import actions from a source file, then you would have to run them as 3 separate actions. Even though you can combine the 3 actions in one process for upload through front end, in Hyperconnect you need to define the 3 actions and their mappings separately. In the scenario you have mentioned, you do have to run 2 separate actions in Hyperconnect.
Example: If from a flat file, you are populating a list and a module, you would have to run 2 separate actions in Hyperconnect.
hi @anikdas thank you for your reply, all 3 imports are not from a source file.
A - Import from flat file(csv) to flat list(A)
B - import from flat list(A) into list B
C - import from flat list(A) into another list C
This is the scenario and this is how the 3 actions are defined into a single process in anaplan. I am trying to run this through informatica but even though the log shows success , the lists are not being updated.
Just to be clear about the second step, I put the last two actions as a process in anaplan and inside informatica I create a synchronization task and mention dummy file as source as you mentioned earlier and target as the process name in anaplan?
I have a process which has delete actions and model to model import actions in it . Will it run if ? can you tell me what i should place in the dummy csv file and what kind of settings should i provide in source of informatica to run a Anaplan process from informatica as a job ?
I ran a simple process through informatica, try placing a dummy file as source and fill first 2 or 3 cells with random data and then also do the dummy mapping in informatica . After that run the task. I did this in synchronization task(informatica).
