tSQLTemplateFilterColumns – Docs for ESB 7.x


Homogenizes schemas by reorganizing, deleting or adding new columns.

tSQLTemplateFilterColumns makes
specified changes to the defined schema of the database table based on column name
mapping. This component has real-time capabilities since it runs the data filtering on
the DBMS itself.

tSQLTemplateFilterColumns Standard properties

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

The Standard
tSQLTemplateFilterColumns component belongs to the ELT family.

The component in this framework is available in all Talend

Basic settings

Component List

Select the relevant DB connection component in the list if you use
more than one connection in the current Job.

Database name

Name of the database.

Source table name

Name of the table holding the data you want to filter.

Target table name

Name of the table you want to write the filtered data in.

Schema and Edit

A schema is a row description, it defines the number of fields that will be processed
and passed on to the next component. The schema is either built-in
or remote in the Repository.

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


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 Job flowcharts. 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 an After 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 +
