Create a transform definition

The following example describes the procedure for creating a new transform definition. In this example, we create a definition that transforms a number field to an odd or even integer. The transform category is Numeric and the normalization field type is Integer.

  1. Navigate to Field Normalization > Administration > Transform Definitions.
  2. Click New in the record list.
  3. Enter a name for this definition.
    Note: In this example, we enter Odd/Even.
  4. Enter a brief description of the action, such as, Transforms an integer to an odd or even value.
    Tranform definition description

    This information appears in the definition choice list when a user selects a new transform.

  5. Right-click in the header bar and select Save in the context menu.
    Two Related Lists appear in the form.
    • Transform Categories: Click Edit and select Numeric as the category to which this definition belongs. Currently, field transformation supports two categories: Numeric and Text. The Integer normalization field type is already associated with this category.
    • Transform Variables: Define any variables required by this transform definition to perform an action on a field value. Variables are not necessary if a script can perform the action alone.
