Configuring Options at Runtime

Open Name Parser options can be configured and passed at runtime if they are exposed as dataflow options. This enables you to override the existing configuration with JSON-formatted name parsing strings. You can also set stage options when calling the job through a process flow or through the job executor command-line tool.

To define Open Name Parser options at runtime:

  1. In Enterprise Designer, open a dataflow that uses the Open Name Parser stage.
  2. Save and expose that dataflow.
  3. Go to Edit > Dataflow Options.
  4. In the Map dataflow options to stages table, expand Open Name Parser and edit options as necessary. Check the box for the option you want to edit, then change the value in the Default value drop-down.
  5. Optional: Change the name of the options in the Option label field.
  6. Click OK twice.
