DataCleaner jobs normally operate on batches of records, for example all records in a CSV file. However, any DataCleaner job can also be used to process single records on the fly. This feature is called "atomic transformations".

Simply create a job that does some kind of transformation (anything from a simple 'String length' operation to a complete chain of 'Address cleansing' and regex parsing), and place the job in the DataCleaner monitor repository. A specialized web service endpoint will be automatically exposed to use the job as an atomic transformation. The endpoint URL will be:
