Option to fail map warning return codes

How will this idea be used?

Currently for map warning failures (Example : Input valid but unknown data found) , the output gets executed before failing / rolling back the transaction.

However this behavior is causing issues when a DB sequence is used in the output. Example , an ITX Error code .21 would fail the map but would have incremented a DB sequence.

We can work around this behavior by adding an extra validation map but that doesn't solve the actual issue with data validation.


Requirement: Have the ability to fail such warning code so the map processing does not get finished and exits as soon as it encounters a warning.

Extract from documentation link :


Extract of current behavior:


'If a map execution warning code occurs, the map fails after processing of that map is finished.'

    Many of our customers rely on the behavior as it is currently implemented. We believe a chnage in this direction, would negatively impact a broad portion fo these customers.
