To assist in building your recipe, you can associate a target with the recipe. This target schema is displayed in the Target Matching bar in the Transformer page above your column histograms, so that you can track how you are progressing toward completion of the recipe.
A target is created from one of the following sources:
Before you create a new target, you must identify, create, or import one of the above objects. Your target must be in a finished state.
NOTE: A target is a snapshot of the target at the time of creation. It does not inherit changes from the source after creation. To update the target for later changes, you must delete and recreate the target. Instructions are provided below.
Each recipe can have one and only one target. Please use the following steps to create a target for your recipe.
If a target already exists for the recipe, select Remove Target from the context menu in the right panel.
NOTE: A recipe can have one and only one target associated with it.
Tip: You can also assign a target from the toolbar in the Transformer page. See Transformer Toolbar.
NOTE: You cannot edit a target through . To make changes, remove the target and add in a modified target.
If there are have been changes to the source schema of your target, please complete the following steps to update your target.
After a schema has been associated with your recipe, schema information and a few example rows are displayed in the data grid of the Transformer page. These examples serve to guide your transformation operations. See Data Grid Panel.
In the Column Browser panel, you can select one or more columns and apply schema-related transformations to them. See Column Browser Panel.
In the right panel, click the context menu. Select Remove Target.
NOTE: Removing a target from a recipe does not remove the underlying dataset from the platform.
NOTE: Deleting a dataset does not remove any target based off of it. You can still perform alignment operations to match the schema. However, you cannot view example rows from the target in the Transformer page.
