Transformation Custom Properties

In addition to the properties that are common to most data flow objects in the SQL Server Integration Services object model, many data flow objects have custom properties that are specific to the object. These custom properties are available only at run time, and are not documented in the Integration Services Managed Programming Reference Documentation.

This topic lists and describes the custom properties of the various data flow transformations. For information about the properties common to most data flow objects, see Common Properties.

Some properties of transformations can be set by using property expressions. For more information, see Data Flow Properties that Can Be Set by Using Expressions.

Boolean

A value that specifies whether inferred member updates are detected. The default value of this property is True.

FailOnFixedAttributeChange

Boolean

A value that specifies whether the transformation fails when row columns with fixed attributes contain changes or the lookup in the dimension table fails. If you expect incoming rows to contain new records, set this value to True to make the transformation continue after the lookup fails, because the transformation uses the failure to identify new records. The default value of this property is False.

FailOnLookupFailure

Boolean

A value that specifies whether the transformation fails when a lookup of an existing record fails. The default value of this property is False.

IncomingRowChangeType

Integer

A value that specifies whether all incoming rows are new rows, or whether the transformation should detect the type of change.

InferredMemberIndicator

String

The column name for the inferred member.

SQLCommand

String

The SQL statement used to create a schema rowset.

UpdateChangingAttributeHistory

Boolean

A value that indicates whether historical attribute updates are directed to the transformation output for changing attribute updates.

The Term Extraction transformation has both custom properties and the properties common to all data flow components.

The following table describes the custom properties of the Term Extraction transformation. All properties are read/write.

Property

Data ype

Description

FrequencyThreshold

Integer

A numeric value that indicates the number of times a term must occur before it is extracted. The default value of this property is 2.

IsCaseSensitive

Boolean

A value that specifies whether case sensitivity is used when extracting nouns and noun phrases. The default value of this property is False.

MaxLengthOfTerm

Integer

A numeric value that indicates the maximum length of a term. This property applies only to phrases. The default value of this property is 12.

NeedRefenceData

Boolean

A value that specifies whether the transformation uses a list of exclusion terms stored in a reference table. The default value of this property is False.

OutTermColumn

String

The name of the column that contains the exclusion terms.

OutTermTable

String

The name of the table that contains the column with exclusion terms.

ScoreType

Integer

A value that specifies the type of score to associate with the term. Valid values are 0 indicating frequency, and 1 indicating a TFIDF score. The TFIDF score is the product of Term Frequency and Inverse Document Frequency, defined as: TFIDF of a Term T = (frequency of T) * log( (#rows in Input) / (#rows having T) ). The default value of this property is 0.

WordOrPhrase

Integer

A value that specifies term type. The valid values are 0 indicating words only, 1 indicating noun phrases only, and 2 indicating both words and noun phrases. The default value of this property is 0.

The input, the input columns, the output, and the output columns of the Term Extraction transformation have no custom properties.

For more information, see Term Extraction Transformation.

Property

Data type

Description

IsCaseSensitive

Boolean

A value that specifies whether a case sensitive comparison applies to the match of the input column text and the lookup term. The default value of this property is False.

RefTermColumn

String

The name of the column that contains the lookup terms.

RefTermTable

String

The name of the table that contains the column with lookup terms.

Property

Data type

Description

InputColumnType

Integer

A value that specifies the use of the column. Valid values are 0 for a passthrough column, 1 for a lookup column, and 2 for a column that is both a passthrough and a lookup column.

The following table describes the custom properties of the output columns of the Term Lookup transformation. All properties are read/write.

Property name

Data type

Description

CustomLineageID

Integer

The LineageID of the corresponding input column if the InputColumnType of that column is 0 or 2.

The input and output of the Term Lookup transformation have no custom properties.

For more information, see Term Lookup Transformation.

The Unpivot transformation has only the properties common to all data flow components at the component level.

Note Note

This section relies on the Unpivot scenario described in Unpivot Transformation to illustrate the use of the options described here.

The following table describes the custom properties of the input columns of the Unpivot transformation. All properties are read/write.

Property

Data type

Description

DestinationColumn

Integer

The LineageID of the output column to which the input column maps. A value of -1 indicates that the input column is not mapped to an output column.
