Error Actions and Error Log (deprecated since 3.0)
Since CloverETL 3.0, these attributes are deprecated.
They should be replaced with either
The Error codes can be used in some components to define the following two attributes:
Any of these values means that a fatal error occurred and the user decides if the process should stop or continue.
To define what should be done with the record, click the Error actions
attribute row, click the button that appears and specify the actions in the following dialog.
By clicking the button,
you add rows to this dialog pane. Select STOP or CONTINUE in the Error action column.
Type an integer number to the Error code column.
MIN_INT value in the left column means that
the action will be applied to all other integer values that have
not been specified explicitly in this dialog.
Figure 40.1. Define Error Actions Dialog
The Error actions attribute has a form of a sequence
of assignments (
errorCode=someAction) each separated by a semicolon.
The left side can be
MIN_INTor any integer number less than 0 specified as some return value in the transformation definition.
MIN_INT, this means that the specified action will be performed for all values that have not been specified in the sequence.
The right side of assignments can be
STOP, when its corresponding
TransformExceptionsis thrown and the graph stops.
CONTINUE, when its corresponding
errorCodeis returned, error message is written to Console or to the file specified by the Error log attribute and graph continues with the next record.
Example 40.1. Example of the Error Actions Attribute
In this case, if the transformation returns
-3, the process continues, if it returns any
other negative value (including
-2), the process stops.
In this attribute, you can specify whether the error messages should be written on Console or in a specified file. The file should be defined using URL File Dialog.
