How To Use Brackets [ ] In ODI User Functions (Doc ID 423803.1)

Last updated on JUNE 28, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Data Integrator - Version 3.2.02.01 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

Bracket characters, '[' and ']', used in Oracle Data Integrator (ODI) user functions are cleared when executing the function.

When an user function is substituted during code generation, any string enclosed within [ ] (inclusive) is not generated.

For example:

year = str (local [ 0 ])

is generated as:

year = str (local )
