Step Explorer

FlexNet Manager Suite (Cloud)

The step explorer shows the procedures in the Compliance Importer, and the steps within those procedures that will be executed for the current adapter.

The step explorer is a docking control and may be moved within the Adapter Studio interface. It also has a column that shows the file a step is being saved to.

Expanding one of the top level procedures shows all the steps within it.

Bold steps and procedures are parts of the template requiring your customization. There are queries in that part of the template that need to be replaced with code that applies to your data source.

Figure: Collapsed (left) and expanded, with bold steps requiring customization. Custom SQL and data transfer steps visible.
The toolbar allows steps to be added, removed, edited and to change their execution order. There are two types of steps that may be added:
  • Custom SQL steps have a yellow database icon and run commands on the source or target database.
  • Data transfer steps have a blue icon with white arrows, and copy data from one database to another using a bulk transfer.

When testing an adapter, the step explorer also shows the status of the current run with green and red icons.

When the attribute values of a step will prevent it being executed for the version of the current connection, it will be grayed out with a strike-through in the step explorer.
