Transform categories

Transform categories are used to group the transform definitions together appropriately to present to users when creating new field transforms.

You can create new categories for existing definitions or change the default associations of categories to definitions. Transform categories are associated with normalization field types to present the correct definition option list for the field being transformed. The base system provides two transform categories: Text and Numeric.

  • Text: Definitions in the Text category transform string type field values. Included in the Text category are:
    • Left
    • Right
    • Constant
    • Trim
    • Prefix
    • Suffix
    • Change Case
    • Delete
    • Insert
    • Substring
    • Replace
  • Numeric: Definitions in the Numeric category arithmetically manipulate integer type field values. Included in the Numeric category are:
    • Limit
    • Round
    • Constant
