This scenario describes a Job that loads records into the ProductFamily business entity defined by a specific data model in the MDM hub.


  • The Product data container: This data container is used to separate the product master data domain from the other master data domains.

  • The Product data model: This data model is used to define the attributes, validation rules, user access rights and relationships of the entities of interest. Thus it defines the attributes of the ProductFamily business entity.

  • The ProductFamily business entity: This business entity contains Id, Name, both defined by the Product data model.

For further information about how to create a data container, a data model, and a business entity along with its attributes, see Creating business entities in a data model.

The Job in this scenario uses three components.

  • tFixedFlowInput: This component generates the records to be loaded into the ProductFamily business entity. In a real-life project, your records to be loaded are often voluminous and stored in a specific file. However, to simplify the replication of this scenario, this Job uses tFixedFlowInput to generate four sample records.

  • tWriteXMLField: This component transforms the incoming data into XML structure.

  • tMDMBulkLoad: This component writes the incoming data into the ProductFamily business entity in bulk mode, generating ID value for each of the record data.
