In standard data integration Jobs, tMap now supports automatic data type conversion at Job execution to avoid compiling errors caused by type mismatch between input and output data flows.

While it can be enabled in tMap in individual Jobs, this feature can also be activated globally in Project Settings so that any tMap component added afterwards will have this feature enabled. The default conversion behavior of tMap can be overridden by adding conversion rules in Project Settings.
