5.x Jitterbit utilities

The Jitterbit Integration Environment includes several utilities that help users test and manage Integration Projects as well as manage Jitterbit servers. These utilities are:

  • Administration Console - lets a user manage a server. The Administration Console can be accessed when launching the application or from the View menu in the Integration Environment. The Administration Console includes:

    • System Console - for starting and stopping a Jitterbit server as well as checking its status. See System console for more information.

    • Scheduler Console - for starting and stopping a server scheduler and checking its status. See Scheduler console for more information.

    • User Console - for creating and assigning users and groups on the server. See Managing users & groups for more information.

  • Activities Performed - lets a users view all the activities they have performed in the Integration Environment since they launched the application.

  • Project Validation - to determine if there are any invalid items in a project.

  • Transformation Utilities - there are several utilities accessible in the mapping tool to let users quickly and easily build and test their transformation mappings. These are:

    • Load Source Data - lets users load sample data from a sample source into the source data structure to validate that data can be read into the structure correctly and it assists users with what certain data elements represent if they are using large complex data structures.

    • Test Transformation - once source data is loaded into the source tree and mappings have been established between the source and target structures, this utilities lets users view the end result of their mappings. See Transformation testing for more information.

    • Test Operation - when testing transformation that pertain to web services, two transformations will need to be tested: the transformation of data to the web service request and the transformation of data from the web service response to the target structure. This utility runs the operation and displays the result of either transformation in the appropriate data structure tree. See Test operations for more information.

    • Transformation Migration - if an underlying system or data structure changes either in the source system or target system, the migration tool allows users to map between the old and new structure. Once that mapping is established, then the new structure can inherit the mappings of the old structure. This tool is useful when there is a complex mapping between two structure and re-mapping would be cumbersome and too time consuming.

  • Error Log - If an unexpected error occurs in the user interface, the error log will provide details of the issue.
