Defining an Information Model Mapping

In an information model mapping, you can define mapping rules for information model attributes, as well as detailed function block properties for each function block variable, 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 information model 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, MyLightingDevice_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 an information model mapping file

namespace com.mycompany
version 1.0.0
displayname "MyLightingDevice_MyIOTPlatform"
description "MyLightingDevice to MyIOTPlatform mapping"
using com.mycompany.MyLightingDevice ; 1.0.0
using com.mycompany.ColorLight_MyIOTPlatform ; 1.0.0

infomodelmapping MyLightingDevice_MyIOTPlatform {
	targetplatform MyIOTPlatform

	from MyLightingDevice.displayname
	to TargetDisplayName

	from MyLightingDevice.switchable
	to MySwitch with { Icon : "switch.png" }

	from MyLightingDevice.colorlight
	to reference ColorLight_MyIOTPlatform
