Usage Notes

Publishing to FME Server: Publishing a workspace that includes this transformer is not recommended. The transformer will try to start an FME outside of FME Server to run the workspace, and this FME will require an additional license. Consider using FMEServerJobSubmitter instead.

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.
