Setting Extractor Option "Initial Load" from Parameter

Hello,

I'm using an extractor in ECC to feed data via CPI-DS to IBP. In the definition of the data flow, I can set via the "extractor options" if the extractor should do an initial load or not.

Is there a way to influence this option via a parameter or do I always have to copy my task in order to differentiate between Initial Load or not?

Best Regards

Uwe

    You use initial load to establish a delta initialization point, then in the future switch to initial load = no in order to get just the delta data. If you don't care about delta for that extractor, there is no need to change the setting away from initial load = yes.

    Hello Uwe,

    You can set a Global Variable and pass a parameter as "Y" for Initial Load and "N" Delta load.

    Hello Nazeer,

    In the configuration tab for the Extractor Options, I can only put "Yes" or "No" - I can't put a variable there. Is there a fixed variable name?

    Best Regards
