Automation - Build Target Readiness Reports only for Valid Mapping Actions


Automation currently autogens Target Readiness '%MissingSel' reports for all key fields on a target table.  Is it possible to exclude these reports from build for key fields set to 'Internal' mapping Actions? Without a secondary review (and deletion of such reports) registered in Transform via Automation, we're producing incorrect stats to the business.

    Ashley, I have reviewed this and appreciate that this can be a bit of pain. However, from a conceptual point of view, a field can have mappings from multiple sources and these could be in conflict.

    I have set this to future consideration, because we may want look at the target design and include a field that specifies that the field in internally generated. This could then be easily and reliably used for filter out the creation of the MissingSel reports.

    This has been a pet peeve of mine for awhile as well. One thing we did add was the ability to turn off autogeneration of existing reports in 6.6 (bug fix coming in 6.6.1). This at least allows you to inactivate the erroneous reports without them being reactivated every time you regenerate your reports. We will look into making this change as well for some future release.
