Delete rows in a database table based on the condition specified.

Usage Notes

The DatabaseDeleter uses FME Writers to perform deletes on tables. Each DatabaseDeleter may have its own database connection, potentially not shared with other writers and transformers. If it is necessary to share a single connection or to change options on the writer that are not available in the DatabaseDeleter, use a writer directly instead.

See FME Readers and Writers > Feature Operations or specific writer documentation for more information on how writers will respond to deleting rows.

Unlike FME Writers, fme_db_operation and fme_where attributes are not supported on DatabaseDeleter input features.

Output Ports

This transformer has no output ports.


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.

Defining Values

There are several ways to define a value for use in a Transformer. The simplest is to simply type in a value or string, which can include functions of various types such as attribute references, math and string functions, and workspace parameters. There are a number of tools and shortcuts that can assist in constructing values, generally available from the drop-down context menu adjacent to the value field.

Dialog Options - Tables

Transformers with table-style parameters have additional tools for populating and manipulating values.
