An existing Mapping Group can be used as the basis for a new Mapping Group. This is particularly useful when wanting to maintain a historical view of the mapping but also create a new Mapping Group that captures a large number of changes due to business events such as reorganizations or M&A activity. This can be accomplished by copying an existing Mapping Group.
To copy a Mapping Group:
Navigate to Mapping Groups in the Data Prep navigation menu.
In the list of existing Mapping Group, click the copy icon on the Mapping Group that you wish to copy.
A new Mapping Group is created and opened. The Mapping Group name defaults to the name of the Mapping Group that was copied with (Copy) appended.
Update the new Mapping Group name by clicking on the name of the Mapping Group, updating it, and click the green checkmark to save the new name.
The list of Mapping Groups will now show the newly created Mapping Group.
📓 Be sure to Publish the new Mapping Group after updating it.
In the Example Shown Below
Select Mapping Groups from the Data Prep navigation menu on the left side.
For the "Product" Mapping Group, select the copy icon on the right side.
The copied Pipeline is opened.
The name is changed from "Product (Copy)" to "Product 2021".
The changes are saved by clicking the green checkmark.
