Field Mapping & Transformation

The definitions of the Source to Target field maps are automatically generated by appRules and can optionally be modified to suit your needs. You can use also appRules field mapping to transform Source data before saving in the Target.

  • Name and save the condition.
  • Apply the condition by selecting it on the Mapping Condition column of a specific row of the table in the MapRecordFields modal.
