Value mapping sets

Abstract

Guide to the value mapping sets in the Sitecore Data Exchange Framework.

A value mapping set controls the mapping of data from one object to another. The template for the generic value mapping set is located at /sitecore/templates/DataExchange/Framework/DataAccess/Mapping/ValueMappingSet

Configuration

A value mapping set does not have any settings of its own to configure. To associate a value mapping with a value mapping set, add the value mapping as a child of the set.

When to extend

The default value mapping set depends on the value mappings assigned to it in order to know what data to map.

Custom value mapping sets can be implemented in cases where the mapping logic is too complex to be described through configuration, or when you want to reuse existing mapping logic.

For information on how to implement a custom value mapping set, see the section Data Mapping Using Code.
