Testing a map

Use a sample document to test the results of your mapping.

Information noteWarning: The Test Run and Show Document features should only be used on a small sample of your data. It is recommended to use files between 10 and 100KB.

Before you begin

You have imported at least one sample document for your input structure.
Information noteTip: If you have multiple inputs and outputs in your map, specify an input document for each row or each ReadURL map element. To execute, use the Test Run to External Output option and specify a file URL for each WriteURL in the output structure of the map.


  1. Open your map in the editor.
  2. Optional: If you have several sample documents, expand the Show Document > Select Sample Input Document menu and select the document to use in your test.


  3. Click Test Run.


A Test Run Output window opens with the content of the input file transformed into the output structure you defined.
