When to use this flow type
Using this flow type, you can transform one or multiple XML files by applying the XSL style sheet.
Step 1. Create connections for the source and destination documents. It can be the same connection. Only Server Storage connections are allowed for this flow type.
Step 2. Start creating the flow by typing
xsl into the Select Flow Type dialog box:
Step 3. Continue by adding one or more transformations, selecting the source and destination connections created in Step 1, entering a file name or a wildcard file name for the source XMLs into the FROM field, and (optionally) entering the destination file name into the TO field. If the TO field is empty - the destination file(s) will be created with the same name as the source file(s). Read how the system will calculate the destination file name.
To transform multiple files in the separate threads, set the value of the Maximum Simultaneous Operations to greater than 1.
This flow collects the files matching the FROM field from the source connection and creates files in the destination connection. If the source connection and the destination connection are pointed to the same folder, and the TO field is empty - the original source file(s) will be overwritten. It is highly recommended that you use a different folder for the destination connection. You can use the Create folder(s) flow type to create folders at run time.
Step 4. Click the MAPPING button, select the Parameters tab and enter the XSLT.
