Informatica Scenarios Based Questions


By on 11:58:00

I am posting Informatica complex scenarios questions in this post and I will post Informatica scenarios answers in my next post. The follow informarica scenarios will be useful for attending interview also to practice for handling different scenarios in day to day office work.


Scenario 1:

I have Source as a Table and I want to load the data in Flat file Target with one Header and one Trailer

Header: (emp,sysdate)

Trailer: count(records), sum(salary)

How will be the approach in Informatica

Scenario 2:

Hi all,

My source,

Table 1

null 11

null 11

Table 2

66 1

67 2

The output I need is

null 11 66 1

null 11 67 2

so for the above requirement i have tried with full outer join.But that is not worked for me.

Scenario 3:

Source Row is

Column A Column B

......................

ABC 3

XYZ 2

Target should come as

Column A Column B

........................

ABC 3

ABC 3

ABC 3

XYZ 2

XYZ 2


Scenario 4:

I have a source table as below

a1

a2

a3

a4

a5

a6

a7

a8

a9

Need an output as

a1,a2,a3

a4,a5,a6

a7,a8,a9


Scenario 5;

Without using aggregator transformation calculate sum and average of sal by dept wise.


Scenario 6:

We have a target source table containing 3 columns : Col1, Col2 and Col3. There is only 1 row in the table as follows:

Col1 Col2 Col3

-----------------

a b c


There is target table containg only 1 column Col. Design a mapping so that the target table contains 3 rows as follows:

Col

-----

a

b

c

Scenario 7:
There is a source table that contains duplicate rows.Design a mapping to load all the unique rows in 1 target while all the duplicate rows (only 1 occurence) in another target.


Scenario 8:

There is a source table containing 2 columns Col1 and Col2 with data as follows:


Col1 Col2

a l

b p

a m

a n

b q

x y


Design a mapping to load a target table with following values from the above mentioned source:


Col1 Col2

a l,m,n

b p,q

x y


Scenario 9:

Design an Informatica mapping to load first half records to 1 target while other half records to a separate target.


Scenario 10:

How to generate sequence numbers using expression transformation?


Scenario 11:

Design a mapping to load the first 3 rows from a flat file into a target?


Scenario 12:

Design a mapping to load the last 3 rows from a flat file into a target?


Scenario 13:

Design a mapping to load the first record from a flat file into one table A, the last record from a flat file into table B and the remaining records into table C?


Scenario 14:

Consider the following products data which contain duplicate rows.

A

B

C

C

B

D

B


Q1. Design a mapping to load all unique products in one table and the duplicate rows in another table.

The first table should contain the following output

A

D

The second target should contain the following output

B

B

B

C

C


Q2. Design a mapping to load each product once into one table and the remaining products which are duplicated into another table.

The first table should contain the following output

A

B

C

D

The second table should contain the following output

B

B

C


Scenario 15:

Consider the following employees data as source

employee_id, salary

10, 1000

20, 2000

30, 3000

40, 5000


Q1. Design a mapping to load the cumulative sum of salaries of employees into target table?

The target table data should look like as


employee_id, salary, cumulative_sum

10, 1000, 1000

20, 2000, 3000

30, 3000, 6000

40, 5000, 11000


Q2. Design a mapping to get the pervious row salary for the current row. If there is no pervious row exists for the current row, then the pervious row salary should be displayed as null.

The output should look like as


employee_id, salary, pre_row_salary

10, 1000, Null

20, 2000, 1000

30, 3000, 2000

40, 5000, 3000


Q3. Design a mapping to get the next row salary for the current row. If there is no next row for the current row, then the next row salary should be displayed as null.

The output should look like as



employee_id, salary, next_row_salary

10, 1000, 2000

20, 2000, 3000

30, 3000, 5000

40, 5000, Null


Q4. Design a mapping to find the sum of salaries of all employees and this sum should repeat for all the rows.

The output should look like as


employee_id, salary, salary_sum

10, 1000, 11000

20, 2000, 11000

30, 3000, 11000

40, 5000, 11000


Scenario 16:

Consider the following employees table as source

department_no, employee_name

20, R

10, A

10, D

20, P

10, B

10, C

20, Q

20, S


Q1. Design a mapping to load a target table with the following values from the above source?

department_no, employee_list

10, A

10, A,B

10, A,B,C

10, A,B,C,D

20, A,B,C,D,P

20, A,B,C,D,P,Q

20, A,B,C,D,P,Q,R

20, A,B,C,D,P,Q,R,S

Q2. Design a mapping to load a target table with the following values from the above source?


department_no, employee_list

10, A

10, A,B

10, A,B,C

10, A,B,C,D

20, P

20, P,Q

20, P,Q,R

20, P,Q,R,S


Q3. Design a mapping to load a target table with the following values from the above source?


department_no, employee_names

10, A,B,C,D

20, P,Q,R,S


Scenario 17:


Consider the following product types data as the source.

Product_id, product_type

10, video

10, Audio

20, Audio

30, Audio

40, Audio

50, Audio

10, Movie

20, Movie

30, Movie

40, Movie

50, Movie

60, Movie

Assume that there are only 3 product types are available in the source. The source contains 12 records and you dont know how many products are available in each product type.


Q1. Design a mapping to select 9 products in such a way that 3 products should be selected from video, 3 products should be selected from Audio and the remaining 3 products should be selected from Movie.


Q2. In the above problem Q1, if the number of products in a particular product type are less than 3, then you wont get the total 9 records in the target table. For example, see the videos type in the source data. Now design a mapping in such way that even if the number of products in a particular product type are less than 3, then you have to get those less number of records from another porduc types. For example: If the number of products in videos are 1, then the reamaining 2 records should come from audios or movies. So, the total number of records in the target table should always be 9.


Scenario 18:

Design a mapping to convert column data into row data without using the normalizer transformation.

The source data looks like


col1, col2, col3

a, b, c

d, e, f


The target table data should look like


Col

a

b

c

d

e

f


Scenario 19:

Design a mapping to convert row data into column data.

The source data looks like

id, value

10, a

10, b

10, c

20, d

20, e

20, f


The target table data should look like

id, col1, col2, col3

10, a, b, c

20, d, e, f


Scenario 20:

c1, c2, c3, c4

A, B, D, H

A, B, D, I

A, B, E, NULL

A, C, F, NULL

A, C, G, NULL


Here in this table, column C1 is parent of column C2, column C2 is parent of column C3, column C3 is parent of column C4.


Q1. Design a mapping to load the target table with the below data. Here you need to generate sequence numbers for each element and then you have to get the parent id. As the element "A" is at root, it does not have any parent and its parent_id is NULL.

id, element, parent_id

1, A, NULL

2, B, 1

3, C, 1

4, D, 2

5, E, 2

6, F, 3

7, G, 3

8, H, 4

9, I, 4


Q2. This is an extension to the problem Q1. Let say column C2 has null for all the rows, then C1 becomes the parent of C3 and c3 is parent of C4. Let say both columns c2 and c3 has null for all the rows. Then c1 becomes the parent of c4. Design a mapping to accommodate these type of null conditions.


Scenario 21:

Input:

1,a1,null,null

1,null,a2,null

1,null,null,a3


output:

1,a1,a2,a3

1,a1,a2,a3

1,a1,a2,a3


Scenario 22:

Five sources from different client location and load the data into respective target.Design a mapping for this.


Scenario 23:

Source table

1,a1,a2,a3

1,a4,a5,a6

1,a7,a8,a9


Target Table

1|a1|a2|a3|a4|a5|a6|a7|a8|a9


Scenario 24:

Source

Scenario 25:
