Toad Data Point 5.1 - User Guide

Transforms Repository

Toad allows you to publish Transformation and Cleanse rules (transforms) to Intelligence Central to share with other users. Toad Data Point users with access to Intelligence Central can view and then download the rules to use locally in their own Transform and Cleanse documents.

You can use the Transforms window to publish rules to, and download rules from, Intelligence Central. This window also displays the rules you saved locally in the Transforms Repository.

Note: This feature is available in the Toad Data Point Professional edition only and requires access to a Toad Intelligence Central server.

What you can do from the Transforms window:

  • My Transforms tab—Use this tab to view the rules saved in your local Transforms Repository. This includes rules you created and saved using the Transform and Cleanse tool, as well as rules you downloaded from Intelligence Central.

    Publish—You can publish rules to Intelligence Central using the My Transforms tab.

  • Common Transforms tab—Use this tab to connect to Intelligence Central and view a list of published rules.

    Download—You can download rules from Intelligence Central using the Common Transforms tab

While the Object Explorer is used to view and access most Intelligence Central objects, transform and cleanse rules are published, downloaded, and managed through the Transforms window. This provides an easy-to-use interface for working with rules and interacting with the Transform and Cleanse tool. This streamlines the interaction between the Transform and Cleanse window and rule activities.
