This step calculates checksums for one or more fields in the input stream and adds this to the output as a new field.
Name of the step. Note: This name has to be unique in a single transformation.
The type of checksum that needs to be calculated. These are the types that are available:
Some checksum types allow to set different result types: String, Hexadecimal and Binary
The name of the result field containing the checksum
Check this to be compatible with transformations that were created with a PDI version before 4.2.0. Before 4.2.0 there have been issues with a wrong hexadecimal encoding when Result Type is set to Hexadecimal (see details in PDI-5190).
Fields used in the checksum
The names of the fields to include in the checksum calculation.
Note: You can use the "Get Fields" button to insert all input fields from previous steps.
