Creating Value Conversion Filters in Import Manager

Hello.
I am trying to create some Value Conversion Filters that change street suffixes to abbreviations. Such as Lane to Ln.
How would I go about doing this? Am I supposed to use the find/replace Conversion Filter?
Points awarded to any helpful answers / helpful guides (besides the Import Manager Guide) <--- I have this already
Thanks,
Nichole

Hi,
Yes u can use the Find/Replace Conversion filter property in Import manager.
In this u can write the word u want to change and then write the req format.
But the conversions are permanent while if u do this in MDM data manager under transformations they are temporary.i.e they will not be syndicated.
Hope this may help u.

  • Value Conversion Filters

    Hello,
    I am trying to meet the new business requirements for the client I am working at. They recentlyd decided to eliminate all company codes and condense to one purchase organization. I have my purchase org and company code data in a Tuple.
    Can I use the value conversion filter to all data in my repository to elimate company codes and condense the purchase orgs? I guess my question really is can you use the value conversion filter if the field values to be converted are in Tuples?
    Thanks experts!

    Hey ,
    if you apply value conversion filters at the field level, the conversions are applied sequentially to each converted value that has not been individually edited or converted at the value level, now when you first map a field, each value in the Converted Value column appears in gray to indicate that it is inheriting value conversion filters from the field level. When you apply a manual edit or a value-conversion filter to an individual value, the Converted Value then appears in black to indicate that you have overridden inheritance from the field level. You can use the Restore Converted Value command to restore inheritance for a value.
    Value conversion filters automate repetitive and error-prone transformations, eliminating manual typing and the possibility of user error. They also allow powerful reformatting algorithms to be applied to an entire group of values.
    No conversion filter is necessary to trim leading and trailing spaces from source values, as Import Manager does this automatically when importing values into an MDM repository.
    Hope it gives you clarity.

  • Fixed value population in Import Manager

    Hi
    I want to populate a fixed value say 'XXXX' to a destination field while loading data thru import manager.
    Can I get some tips how to accomplish that.
    Appreciate your help
    -Reo

    Hi Reo,
    You can probably make use of <b><i>Conversion Filters</i></b> to accomplish this.
    In the Map Fields/Values tab of the Import Manager, when you map your source field to the corresponding destination field; you can apply a conversion filter on your source field. 
    In field mapping sub-pane, right-click on the source field and select <i>Apply Conversion Filter</i>. You can these choose an appropriate filter like <i><b>Replace</b> and eliminate/replace source field value with/by blank space</i> followed by <i><b>Apply Operator --> Prepend</b> and then specify your fixed value 'XXXX'</i>.
    As a result your source field will always contain the value 'XXXX' and the same will be imported into your destination field. You can preview the converted source field value in the Converted Value column of the Value Mapping sub-pane(Source side).
    This could be a possible solution to your problem.
    Let me know if this helped your cause.

  • Partial match for Value Mapping in Import Manager

    Hello Experts,
    We have a import map which is used to do mass insert of data into the main table. This is done as & when required by the end user.
    We have a qualified lookup field which has a flat lookup filed as the Non-Qualifier. This flat lookup field is refering to a Lookup Flat table, which has mulitple dispay fields like Code,Name, Status etc. (14 fields in total) where as only the Code is the unique field.
    We have only the unique field in our source file which we use for the import. Since we have only a part of the display fields in the source, the automap functionality in the Value maping section doesn't work. It becomes very tedious for the user to manually map all the values for this field.
    Is there any way by which we can convert the source or target values in the import map, so that we can map the values using the Automap feature?
    Your help & suggestion for alternate approach is highly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.
    Regards,
    Uday
    P.S. We are using SAP MDM 5.5 SP6.

    Hi Uday,
    No need to enable remote key mapping for QLT. Please execute the below steps(stated with an example) -
    1.  Among all the fields in the referenced lookup table, identify the lookup fields and the tables they are looking up .
    For eg.If you have a lookup field as 'Country' as one of the fields, look up table will be 'Countries'
    2.For the identified lookup tables, set 'key mapping =Yes' in Console.
    For eg, For Country Lookup table ,set Key mapping to 'Yes'
    3.Import values into Lookup table (Import manager)/ Remote key update -
    In import manager, select source (local file) and destination as Countries flat table.This Table will be haing 2fields - Code and description.Clone the 'Code'field and map it to Remote key field in destination hierarchy.Map code and description to equivalent destination fields. Select 'Code' as matching field > Perform import into lookup table.
    Check if the records in countries table are updated with remote keys(in Data manager> right click on a record> select 'Edit key mappings' > view key mapping for the record)
    3.Import to Qualified table/Auto value mapping -
    Now, in the import map for qualified import , map the source field and destination field (of lookup type), all the values of this field will automatically map.
    Similarly, refresh remote keys mappings for all the lookup tables first and then you can see auto mappings of values happening for the lookup fields.

  • Automap Lookup values in Import Manager

    Hi,
    I have  lookup field in main table for country code.  In import map I can do automap and then can run the import. But when the new data comes in, new valid country code values are not automatically mapped. I have to click on automap again. I have looked at MDIS default unmapped handling options and do find any that will cover this scenario. This is a very basic scenario, I think I missing something here on how to set this automap feature for future imports. Any help would be appreciated.
    Regards,
    Imran Zafar

    Hi Imran,
    For automatic Value mapping, you have options in the MDIS.ini
    Please refer to the Page no-12 of this link doc:
    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/sdn/go/portal/prtroot/docs/library/uuid/8973bcaf-0801-0010-b7a7-f6af6b1df00e
    Also, there are few configuration options for Value Automapping in the Import Manager config options. You can go through the Link below
    http://help.sap.com/saphelp_mdm550/helpdata/en/43/12036df94c3e92e10000000a1553f6/frameset.htm
    Go to MDM Import Server. MDIS Configuration->Trouble Shooting
    Now, after doing the basic settings, Also, there can still be problems. I had faced a similar issues while importing a file and the Automap feature did not work fine.
    You can use Import Manager-> File->Save Update for an Import Map. This will save all the updates you make to the map.
    After save Updates, try importing a file and check whether the values are getting Auto mapped.
    Hoep this info helps.

  • Import failed. Unhandled Exception in Import Manager

    I'm just starting with MDM (5.5 SP1) and have created my first Import but keep getting an "Import failed. Unhandled Exception. RC: 0x82030100" when I Execute Import. I'm not sure where to look to determine the cause. Any suggstions?

    Hi Russell,
    On your C drive, under Program Files>SAP MDME 5.5>Import Manager is the first place to start- Import manager log is an XML document created, and shows the steps import manager went through before it failed.  It could give some ideas about the cause.  Other than that, I have seen that not setting key mapping accurately can cause this exception.
    Good luck!

  • Import Manager problem

    Hi All
    I would like to ask to help me with very strange problem, I tried to google it but no success.
    When I use Importa Manager (ver 7,1 SP5) to import ~ 150 records there is a problem. I choose to upload all record to create, but only one is created. I tried few times to upload and each time it create only one record. I am uploading from Excel.
    That is strange, because normally to others repositories I can ulpad a lot more records with no problem.
    I never had that problems before.
    Thank you for help.
    BR
    Rafal

    1. check the preview tab in the import managerand see how many are shown in there compared to the excel
    2. is it showing the correct number of items (in the create / matching )  view of the import manager ??
    3. check in data manager if you are opening any named search / mask views to see only 1 record .
       click the reset search at the top to see again ?
    4.if alls correct , this seems to be some exception which is not thrown - hence raise an OSS with SAP with the archive file and excel uploaded
    hth
    thanks

  • MDM Import Manager - remove multiple values from a multi valued fiedl

    Hi,
    We have this multi-valued field and we would like to clean the values from it.
    How can we do this using MDM Import Manager?
    Example:
    Article A
    Field XPTO has values Z, T and P.
    We want this field XPTO with no values. How can we do a mass actualization to clean the field for some articles?
    Thanks and regards,

    Hi Maria,
    There can be multiple ways to achieve this -
    1.After doing field mapping for XPTO you can set conversion filter for each of the values.
    2.Value map with NULL.
    3.Trigger a Workflow on import/record add,run assignment and make that field NULL.
    4.Run mass update for conditional assignment based on that value of XPTO.
    There can be more ways,whichever suits you best you can go ahead with that.
    Hope it helped

  • Value Mapping in Import Manager

    Hi All,
    I have Probelm while loading data to MAIN TABLE through Import manager,I am getting XML file from Legacy System in which legacy sends State Code like NM (for New Mexico) .In my region table I made Name and Code as display field .Created my Import map ,when ever new value comes for region value mapping is not working ,I tried changing my region table with code only display field it works ,but I want Name also display field .
    Note : all my lookup table Remote key mapping Enabled
    Is there any way we can acheive this or am I missing some thing here .
    Thanks,
    Madhu

    Hi Madhu,
    to achive this:
    1. First go to the table where you are maintaining the region codes.
    2. Enter the region code there and then go to the import manager by connecting to the source file.
    3. go the region field map by opening the map.
    4. go to value mapping pane and select unmap.
    5. then select Automap and check the that your region code added manually is mapped with the source file.
    6. You may see some unmapped source values, map it to Null values at destination.
    7. Save the map.
    8. This shoul enable the import for you.
    if you want to avoid the manual mapping everytime, you should be getting all the region codes once and import/update it in the data manager as a one time job.
    Then you avoid steps 1 to 3 everytime and carry out the remaining steps to import the records.
    Hope this helps resolve the issue.
    Thanks

  • Create key mapping using import manager for lookup table FROM EXCEL file

    hello,
    i would like create key mapping while importing the values via excel file.
    the source file containing the key, but how do i map it to the lookup table?
    the properties of the table has enable the creation of mapping key. but during the mapping in import manager, i cant find any way to map the key mapping..
    eg
    lookup table contains:
    Material Group
    Code
    excel file contain
    MatGroup1  Code   System
    Thanks!
    Shanti

    Hi Shanti,
    Assuming you have already defined below listed points
    1)  Key Mapping "Yes" to your lookup table in MDM Console
    2) Created a New Remote System in MDM console
    3) proper rights for your account for updating the remote key values in to data manager through import manager.
    Your sample file can have Material Group and Code alone which can be exported from Data Manager by File-> Export To -> Excel, if you have  data already in Data Manager.
    Open your sample file through Import Manager by selecting  the remote system for which you want to import the Key mapping.
    (Do Not select MDM as Remote System, which do not allows you to maintain key mapping values) and also the file type as Excel
    Now select your Soruce and Destination tables, under the destination fields you will be seeing a new field called [Remote Key]
    Map you source and destination fields correspondingly and Clone your source field code by right clicking on code in the source hierarchy and map it to Remote Key if you want the code to be in the remote key values.
    And in the matching criteria select destination field code as a Matching field and change the default import action to Update NULL fields or UPDATED MAPPED FIELDS as required,
    After sucessfull import you can check the Remote Key values in Data Manager.
    Hope this helps
    Thanks

  • Truncate / Trim and Convert the values while importing in Import Manager

    Hi,
    I am facing the following issues while importing the values in Import Manager.
    1) The incoming value is a 4 character text value (e.g. D004) and i need to truncate the 1st two characters so that i get the output as "04"  and map it to the destination numeric 2 character field.
    Can any1 help me on this as to how can i truncate the 1st two characters?
    2) My incoming value is a numeric field which is coming from ECC. this value can be negative as well. the ECC sends this value as (78.00-) ie the minus sign is suffixed to the value but in MDM i need it as (-78.00) ie minus sign prefixed to the value.
    Is there any setting in Import manager where i can set the minus sign as a prefix?
    Useful answers will be rewarded with points.
    Regards,
    Roshani

    Hi Roshani,
    Can any1 help me on this as to how can i truncate the 1st two characters?
    As suggested by everyone, none of these options will work. Since your field has alphanumeric Value i.e. D004. Use Option Replace.
    After mapping your source field with target field which must be of Type TEXT, Right click on your source field>Set Value Conversion filter>Replace..-->a pop up window will come Replace write Find What: D0 and Replace with: keep it blank(dont write anything) and then Press Ok, you will see all your Source values D0XX converted to XX and then can save in Import Map which will give you the desired result.
    If you set your target field of type INTEGER, you cant have option Replace. And the TRUNCATE option as suggested by everyone will not work as Operand 2: you can set as Numeric values only, you would not able to write D.
    Is there any setting in Import manager where i can set the minus sign as a prefix?
    I dont think this is possible alone with Import Manager, you need MDM workflow for this where your workflow trigger action = Record Import in Data Manager, and need to select the same workflow in configuration options of Import Manager>Import>checkout/workflow = select the workflow name from drop-down which you set in Data Manager and then need to save this in your Import Map. So in this manner whenever record comes through import Manager, these records automatically will go through this Workflow and will give you the desired result.
    START(CHECKOUT)>Assign>STOP(CHECKIN)
    Assign step where you give assignment on this field and write assignment expression as:
    IF(FIND(XXX, "-"), "-"&LEFT(XXX, (LEN(XXX)-1)), XXX)
    where XXX = Field name which you defined in MDM repository.

  • Unable to select the created Ports(greyed out) in the import manager

    Hi ,
    We have created some ports with specific Remote system and XML schema's and also assigned the map to it.
    The processing type is manual for now,since we want to load data manually using import manager from the Ready folder of the port since PI is dropping the files there.But when I load import manager and select the file type as "Port" and also the relevant remote system ,I cannot select any of the list of ports created ,All are greyed out.
    All I need is to select "Port" option ,remote system and use the created port from the dropdown list of import manager " connect to source" step,which i am unable to select as  all the port s are greyed out and unable to select.
    Any help greatly appreciated...

    Hello Arvind,
    There is no need to start the MDIS (Import server) if you are importing the data manually.you just open the import manager, login into the repository and select type as XML as per your case and select the remote system (it depends on your requirement) and select the port on which your xml files resides.and enter in the import manager then map you data accordingly and you can import into the repository.
    when you want to automate the process for importing the data in repository then you will need to Start the import Server. In that case import server automatically pick the file from the ready port folder and also set the property in console as the processing type is Automatic.
    Hope this will help you and clear your doubt.

  • Importing vm created on vm server in vm manager

    Hi all,
    I have created a vm with virt-install on the vm server.This only created a hardisk image file at the location which i specified as /OVS/running_pool/vm_name and one configuration file in /etc/xen. when i try to import this vm in the vm manager it gives error as no vm.cfg found.(i already have few vm created through vm manager).
    Do vm created thru vm server be imported via vm manager?

    Hi,
    I had similar experiences and this is what we did:
    1. Move (yes move, not copy) the configuration file created by virt-install (by default in /etc/xen/<your_virtual_machine_name>) to /OVS/running_pool/<your_virtual_machine_name>/vm.cfg
    2. Import the virtual machine into Oracle VM Manager:
    * Resources Tab
    * Virtual Machine Images
    * Import
    * Select from server pool (discover and register)
    * Choose your server pool
    * Sharing - set as Private
    * Pick the virtual machine from the drop down list
    * Select the O/S version
    * System user/password
    * Console Password:
    * Enter a description of tha machine.
    * Import it
    * Once imported you then need to approve it
    3. You should now be able to see and control the virtual machine from the Oracle VM Manager main window.
    I hope this helps.

  • Date field conversion in Import Manager

    Hi,
    I am getting the source Date field as 'Text' type and want to convert it to Date type.
    Is it possible in import Manager?
    What are the best way to manage the issue.
    Appreciate your reply
    regards,
    reo

    Hi Reo,
    The data types of source data values are automatically
    converted within the Source Values grid based on the data type of the
    destination field to which the source field is mapped, even when stored
    in the source data as text values.
    Original source values appear with their original data type in the Value
    column, and the converted values appear in the Converted Value
    column with the data type of the mapped destination field and the
    proper grid cell type for editing (e.g. text, numeric, measurement,
    currency, date, time, Boolean).<i> If necessary, individual values can then
    be manually edited to override errors or omissions in the source data.</i>
