Data Process in Boomi:
Data Process shape is one of the most commonly used shapes in Boomi Processes. It is used to manipulate the incoming data within a process in so many ways based on the requirement. You just need to select the processing step from the list provided in the drop-down. You can add multiple steps within a single shape by clicking on the ‘+’ icon. Boomi will perform the manipulations in sequential order of the processing steps defined. Also, you have to remember that the Data process is just a shape but not a component so you won’t get the revision history for this shape individually. Let’s see about the data processing steps below in detail.
Data Processing Steps:
Refer to the image below to find all of the data processing steps available in the data process shape. Let’s discuss a few of them below.
- Base64 Decode:
This is used to decode the original document data from Base64 encoded data.
- Base64 Encode:
This is used to encode the plain data in the document into the Base64 encoded format.
- Combine Documents:
This is used to combine the incoming documents based on any reference element. The profile format options that are available to combine documents are Flat-File, XML, JSON, and None.
- Split documents:
The split documents step is used to split the incoming document into separate documents based on any key element. For example: To split each line as a new document from the input single Flat-file document with multiple lines in it.
This is used to search/Replace any text or character in the entire input document. This is can be done as like entire document at once / by line by line/increment by a specified number of characters. Doing this at once for the entire document is not recommended for large documents.
By using this we can do WinZip compressed file to Unzip or unzipped file to zip compressed conversions
