Integration Framework - Action property in Flat File header record
What are the valid values for the action property in a Flat File header record?
The action header property, in a Flat File structure, is an optional property that applies to the content of primary and child objects in and object structure. The action header property indicates the system’s inbound processing logic how to process the detail records in the flat file.
The following table lists the valid values for the action. Action values are case sensitive
|Add||Add records to database in receiving system|
|AddChange||Add or update existing records in the database in the receiving system|
|Change||Update existing records in the database in the receiving system|
|Delete||Delete records from the database in the receiving system|
|Replace||Substitute existing records in the database in the receiving system|
|Null||Add records or replace records in the database in the receiving system depending on whether the primary record exists in the database.
-If the primary record does NOT exist in the database, the system performs an Add action.
-If the primary record DOES exist in the database, the system performs a Replace action.
Flat File structure supports setting a specific action value at the header record in the flat structure, hence specifying an overall processing action that applies to all parent and child records in the file.
