Configuring a component through metadata allows you to configure the component with predefined information.

Before you begin

You must have created a metadata definition (see Creating a metadata definition).

Procedure

  1. Click inside the Designer.
  2. Add a tFileInputDelimited component.
    Note: By default, the component is configured with Built-in parameters.
  3. Double-click the tFileInputDelimited component.
    1. In the Property Type list, select Repository.
    2. Click the […] button next to the Repository field.
    3. Under Metadata > File delimited, select a metadata definition.

      Example

      customers 0.1
      All the Component fields are filled in with the metadata information. They now appear in gray, indicating that they belong to the metadata, and not to the component.

Results

You have succesfully configured a component through metadata.
