Filter records from the input data source.
Since this is a no-operation task (ie. doesn't do anything except filter records and pass them along to the next task), there are no input fields.
- If you set a filter on this task using the Filter Input option, remember that the filter will be applied throughout any tasks in the job after this task. This template is unique in that the filter applied in this section means that any records meeting that filter criteria will flow through the rest of the job. *When this option is used in other tasks, the filter is only applied to that task*
- This task is handy to employ when developing your job. By limiting the number of records from your input data source, your job can process the filtered records faster than if you run the job against the entire data source. Once your job logic has been verified, you can either remove the filter task, or change the filter so your entire data source is processed in subsequent runs.
