Defining a Function Block Mapping

In a function block mapping, you can define mapping rules for function block attributes, as well as detailed function block properties and data types used in function blocks.


Proceed as follows

  1. In the Vorto Model Project Browser, select the project in the Select Vorto Project drop-down list.
    Select a Project
  2. Right click on the function block you want to create a mapping for and choose New Mapping Model
    The Create Mapping Model dialog opens.
    Create Mapping Model Dialog
  3. Enter a name as Mapping Model Name, for example, ColorLight_MyIOTPlatform.
  4. Adjust the entries for the input fields Namespace, Platform and Version, if necessary.
  5. Optionally, enter a description in the Description entry field.
  6. Click Finish.
  7. Switch to the Java perspective. The new mapping file has been created (with suffix .mapping). It is located in the folder <project>/mappings.
    Generated source
  8. Edit the mapping file according to your needs.

Example of a function block mapping file

namespace com.mycompany
version 1.0.0
displayname "ColorLight_MyColorLight"
description "ColorLight to MyColorLight mapping"
using com.mycompany.fb.ColorLight ; 1.0.0
using com.mycompany.Color_MyIOTPlatform ; 1.0.0

functionblockmapping ColorLight_MyIOTPlatform {
	targetplatform MyIOTPlatform

	from ColorLight.displayname
	to TargetDisplayName

	from ColorLight.configuration.defaultColor
	to reference Color_MyIOTPlatform

	from ColorLight.operation.setR, ColorLight.operation.setG, ColorLight.operation.setB
	to channelType with { Attribute : "color" }
