Adding a Hierarchical Data stage to a DataStage flow

Use the DataStage® canvas to add a Hierarchical Data stage to a DataStage flow.

The following example describes how to add a Hierarchical Data stage to a DataStage flow.

  1. Drag a source and a target from the palette onto the canvas.
  2. Open the Stages section of the palette, and drag the Hierarchical Data stage icon onto the canvas in between the source and the target.
  3. Create a link from the source to the Hierarchical Data stage and from the Hierarchical stage to the target.
  4. Modify the default name of the stage and the link.
    Note: When you design a DataStage flow with Hierarchical Data stage, decide the name of the DataStage input and output link before you configure the mapping within the Hierarchical Data stage. If you try to rename the input or output link, then it invalidates all the configured mapping within the Hierarchical Data stage. Similarly, when you copy a Hierarchical Data stage, you must reconfigure the mapping for the copied Hierarchical Data stage.
  5. Click the Save icon on the toolbar.
