How to run stored procedure in Informatica cloud

How to run stored procedure in Informatica cloud?

There are multiple ways to run stored procedure in Informatica cloud.

If you want to call a stored procedure by passing an input value and reading the output from the stored procedure and process it in a mapping then it is better to use SQL transformation in Informatica cloud mapping designer as shown in picture below:


If you want to read the output of a stored procedure as a source in a mapping then you can call the stored procedure a query in the source as shown in screenshot below. The exec sp_help stored procedure is called in the source query. The stored procedure should return some data for this method to work. You might have to define the output variables in the stored procedure.



If you want to just execute a stored procedure once before or after executing a mapping then you can call the stored procedure a pre or post processing command in the mapping configuration as shown in the screenshot below. SQLCMD of sql server is used to execute the stored procedure. The output of the stored procedure is written to an output file. -b flag is used to return error code and make the preprocessing command fail when the stored procedure fails. Use session property  Preprocessing command failure and set it to stop if you want failure to stop the processing of other jobs.
