Writes a map element to the specified URL.


The WriteURL function may be used only as an I/O expression. Specify it as the I/O expression of the element that contains the data to be written. The values of the element containing the I/O expression and any subordinate elements are written to the specified URL.

You may use this function in multiple map elements in order to write to multiple URLs. You may not however nest the use of this function. In other words, if a map element contains an I/O expression, no subordinate map element may contain an I/O expression. See the discussion on Input/Output for further details.

This function can be used to allow writing to multiple documents/objects in the map execution that are assigned dynamically by calling methods on the MapExecutionContext. In this case the URL is not required.

Return Type
