Unlike the TextEncoder transformer, this transformer will not change the character encoding of text attributes. The TextEncoder converts all attribute values to UTF-8 before they are encoded. This transformer simply encodes the attribute using its existing character set.
Identifies the method the transformer will use to encode the attribute: HEX (default) or Base64.
The value of this attribute will be encoded using the selected method.
This attribute will store the encoded data.
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.
Selecting HEX as the Encoding Type replaces the HexEncoder transformer, which is now deprecated.
