Creating and configuring objects

Each object you create will have its own set of properties to configure. Prop­erties determine what type, or class, of object is created, how its unique properties map to your source data, and even whether a new object instance is created or an existing instance is updated. If you are updating objects, you must enter criteria for finding instances to update. Once all your object classes are identified in the import wizard—either through a Create, an Update, or as a Reference—then you can add relationships between them.

To create and configure an object:

  1. On the Add Objects & Relationship page, click Add Object. The Add Des­tination Object wizard opens.

  2. Use each page of the wizard to configure the object: General Properties, Map Properties, and Criteria.
