Syndication parameters

Hello there,

Are there any parameters that controls the filenames of the Data*.xml files?

What I would like is that the syndication, for each port generate one file and only one (creation only)

Greetings,

Yan Wong

    Unfortunately - there is no option to set up the file names as of SP06. Default is "Data_"

    Can you elaborate on you statement

    "What I would like is that the syndication, for each port generate one file and only one (creation only)"

    what is the result you want ?

    Regards,

    Hi Yan,

    File Names for the exported files cant be controlled with in MDM. However, according to me, it can be done using XI, if it is present in the landscape.

    Also for your second query, you have several options in the syndicator:

    1. Suppress unchanged records - If there are no changes to the records and they are already syndicated once, The records will not get syndcaited then.

    2. Suppress Records without Key- If the records are not having keys and they are created in MDM, they can be suppressed if needed using this feature.

    Also you can set the "Processing Interval" for the Outbound port ( In console) according to your wish. This will allow the file to be syndicated only periodically.

    Using the above mentioned features intelligently, I think you can meet your requirement.

    Hope it helps.

    Thanks and Regards

    Hi Yan,

    If you are working with automatic syndication using Syndiaction server then there is no way within MDM to change the name of the outbound exported file.It will always be in the Data_ .xml format

    However if you are performing a manual syndiaction it will ask you the file name,there you can give your user defined name.

    What I would like is that the syndication, for each port generate one file and only one (creation only)

    - if you mean, that you require only one xml file consisting all the selected Records instaed of one xml per record.Then you need to change the map properties XML file output -> single file xml.

    the default is multiple xml file putput change it to single file.

    this will generate a single xml file having all the records you selected.

    Hope it helps

    Kindly reward point sif found useful

    Thanks

    Hello,

    Thanks for your suggestions. What I would like to do with MDM is that the syndication of a port produce one file and only one: The default behaviour of the syndication is to produce a Data_<timestamp>.xml.

    I only wanted to know if there was an option that create a file Data.xml each time it syndicates with no timestamp (the file is replaced)
