About Feature Inspection

Feature inspection allows you to analyze features in real time as they move through the workspace, significantly reducing the amount of time required to author and test a workspace. Feature inspection is a useful alternative to examining the translation log or routing output to Inspector transformers.

To take advantage of feature inspection, use the following options from the Workbench Run menu or Toolbar:

  • Run with Feature Caching: Run all or part of a workspace and inspect features at select output ports.
  • Run with Breakpoints: Run a workspace and inspect data one feature at a time, pausing between features (Feature Inspector).
