Writes features to any FME-supported Writer.
Any number of input ports can be created either by connecting to the Connect Input port or by editing the transformer properties and manually adding new inputs. Each input port corresponds to one output feature type for the selected Writer.
Provides summary of features written.
Select the Writer format, dataset and coordinate system, including any writer-specific parameters.
Name of the attribute that will contain the value of the Writer dataset.
The left-hand pane list the names of current feature types that are defined/configured. There are two ways to add new feature type definitions:
- By dragging and connecting a link to Connect Input port of the transformer. This creates a new port and feature type with information gathered from the incoming link such as attributes and its types.
- By clicking on “+” button and then selecting “New” or “Import from Dataset…” option. This creates a blank feature type.
These feature types are analogous to Writer feature types on canvas and can be edited in same way.
Name of the attribute that will contain the names of all the feature types that are written in a FME list format
Name of the attribute that will contain the total number of features written to all the feature types
Editing Transformer Parameters
Using a set of menu options, transformer parameters can be assigned by referencing other elements in the workspace. More advanced functions, such as an advanced editor and an arithmetic editor, are also available in some transformers. To access a menu of these options, click beside the applicable parameter. For more information, see Transformer Parameter Menu Options.
