ADP Data Mapping

Data Mapping and Transformation is one of the powerful features of Connect iPaaS. When you create a workflow, certain attributes of your trigger application are available to the action application for data mapping and transformation. These attributes can be mapped to the specific attributes of the action application. This powerful capability not only allows field mapping but it also allows complex transformation using Excel-style functions to apply hundreds of formulas and operations. The choice of Excel style function makes data mapping on Connect iPaaS a breeze for business users who are already well versed with Microsoft Excel formulas.

Example Scenario with ADP Trigger

ADP converts CSV data directly from a CSV file into separate data fields which then can be used by downstream applications as data to action(s) upon. Below are the figures describing the Data Mapping and Transformation.

In Figure 1, all of the CSV column headers along with its data type are defined in the ADP trigger.

In Figure 2, you will see column headers inserted in the ADP trigger are present as data fields which then can be mapped to the action fields.
