The File Metadata offers the possibility to define filters, that allows to specify a range of records to process.

This can be useful to define more precisely the records to treat when loading files.


  • Stambia DI Designer S18.3.0 or higher
  • Stambia DI Runtime S17.4.0 or higher


Metadata Configuration

To define the range filter:

  1. Open the File Metadata
  2. Add a Filter on the Record, or update an existing one
  3. Set the First Line and Last Line Parameters




  • You can use negative values like -10 in these parameters to filter from the end of the file
  • If the First Line parameter is not set, it will be considered as '0' (read everything from the beginning).
  • If the Last Line parameter is not set, it will be read until the last line of the file.
  • This filter only applies when reading the file, not when writing it.


That's it! From now, when the file will be read in a Mapping or Process, only the specified lines will be retrieved.
