tReplaceList Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tReplaceList running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard tReplaceList component belongs to the Data Quality family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend products.

Basic settings

Schema and Edit schema

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields to be processed and passed on to the next component. The schema is either Built-in or stored remotely in the Repository.

Two read-only columns, Value and Match, are added to the output schema automatically.

Information noteImportant: The data type defined in the schemas must be consistent, ie., an integer can only be replaced by another integer using an integer as a look up field. Values of one type cannot be replaced by values of another type.


Built-in: The schema will be created and stored locally for this component only. For more information about a component schema in its Basic settings tab, see Basic settings tab.


Repository: The schema already exists and is stored in the Repository, hence can be reused in various projects and Job designs. For more information about a component schema in its Basic settings tab, see Basic settings tab.

Global Variables

Global Variables

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This variable functions only if the Die on error check box is cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl+Space to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For more information about variables, see Using contexts and variables.


Usage rule

tReplaceList is an intermediary component. It requires an input flow and an output component.
