tCombinedSQLFilter – Docs for ESB 7.x


Filters data by reorganizing, deleting or adding columns based on the source table
and to filter the given data source using the filter conditions.

tCombinedSQLFilter allows you to
alter the schema of a source table through column name mapping and to define a row
filter on that table. Therefore, it can be used to filter columns and rows at the same
time. This component has real-time capabilities since it runs the data filtering on the
DBMS itself.

tCombinedSQLFilter Standard properties

These properties are used to configure tCombinedSQLFilter running in the Standard Job framework.

The Standard
tCombinedSQLFilter component belongs to the ELT family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend

Basic settings

Schema and Edit

A schema is a row description. It defines the number of fields
(columns) to be processed and passed on to the next component. When you create a Spark
Job, avoid the reserved word line when naming the

Click Edit
to make changes to the schema. If the current schema is of the Repository type, three options are available:

  • View schema: choose this
    option to view the schema only.

  • Change to built-in property:
    choose this option to change the schema to Built-in for local changes.

  • Update repository connection:
    choose this option to change the schema stored in the repository and decide whether
    to propagate the changes to all the Jobs upon completion. If you just want to
    propagate the changes to the current Job, you can select No upon completion and choose this schema metadata
    again in the Repository Content

Click Sync columns to retrieve
the schema from the previous component connected in the Job.


Built-in: You create and store
the schema locally for this component only. Related topic: see

Repository: You have already
created the schema and stored it in the Repository. You can reuse it
in various projects and Jobs. Related topic: see

Global Variables

Global Variables

NB_LINE: the number of rows read by an input component or
transferred to an output component. This is a Flow variable and it returns an

QUERY: the query statement being processed. This is a Flow
variable and it returns a string.

ERROR_MESSAGE: the error message generated by the
component when an error occurs. This is an After variable and it returns a string. This
variable functions only if the Die on error check box is
cleared, if the component has this check box.

A Flow variable functions during the execution of a component while an After variable
functions after the execution of the component.

To fill up a field or expression with a variable, press Ctrl +
to access the variable list and choose the variable to use from it.

For further information about variables, see
Talend Studio

User Guide.


Usage rule

This component is an intermediary component. The use of the
corresponding connection and commit components is recommended when
using this component to allow a unique connection to be open and
then closed during the Job execution.
