DateTime Functions should handle Epoch as well

We're receiving a message where the timestamps are in Epoch notation. ToDateTime and FromDateTime (and maybe other related functions) should be able to handle this so it can be treated and/or formatted in a human-readable format.
3 months ago in Sterling Transformation Extender / Design Studio 0 Needs more information

ITX Design Studio should have an option to allow users to search based on FUNCTION name or what function does just like what we have in SI Mapper.

Right now, while doing the mapping in ITXA, we need to search the function manually and only by name. There is no search bar or anything which allows us to search based on the FUNCTION name or what FUNCTION does in ITXA. Add a search bar just in S...

ITX Design Studio should show functions while doing the mapping in ITX window the moment we start typing the function.

Right now, while doing the mapping, for every function we want to use we have to manually type that function regardless of the length of that function and this causes issues if even one character is wrong or absent in the function. What I want is ...

Make ITX functions TimeZone and DST aware

Currently when doing computations with timestamps across DST boundaries the functions (tealted to date/time) don't account for DST switches. This makes the result invalid. So in our case adding or substracting days from a timestamp doesn't take in...

add -L parameter to RUN()

Looks like the -L parameter is currently only available in Command Server on Non-Windows platforms. When I try to call RUN("submap", "-L") in a map, I only get a generic error message ("Error detected in running map, exiting.") Our migration from ...

Compliance check for CONTROL map

In ITX v10.2.1 supply chain we observed that there is no compliance check on CONTROL Messages. As part of WDI to ITX Migration , we would need to have the compliance check when CONTROL messages are received as input to ITX.

automapper should also work with same input/output types

It is a common pattern to work twice on a output card, e.g.:- when the output should also include summarized amounts of several output records that need to be built/calculated first- when the header should announce how many records will follow Now...

Autmoapper from output to output

The automapper is very useful, but only does input to output. In some cases, we need to prepare mapping in one output card, and enrich it later in a following output card. Currently, it can be done but needs some cards copy and moving, and this wo...

enhanced PARSE function

In order to use the new PARSE function as a replacement for the old RUN(submap) constructs, the PARSE function should have similar behavior as RUN(submap). This essentially requires 2 enhancements: 1.) We need to pass arguments to PARSE like "-F21...

A new WARN() function, which would work similar to FAIL()

I propose a new function WARN(), which would work in a similar way to FAIL() and end the map with a specific warning code.
