FME Workbench uses color to indicate the status of your transformers and connectors.
Transformers display three possible color states on the Properties button. The button is located on the top right corner of every transformer.
The same color as the transformer with an ellipsis (…)
You can use the transformer with its existing parameters.
Yellow with an ellipsis (…)
The transformer contains default settings, but you have not yet accepted them. You can use the transformer in this state, but your workspace may produce unexpected results.
Red with an exclamation point (!)
One of the mandatory fields is blank.
Connectors display three possible color states at each endpoint.
Green input arrow
The connection is set.
Red input arrow
The port has no input. This is not an error. A port with no input can be intentional and a valid design. However, it is good practice to verify red arrows to avoid unexpected errors when running the translation.
Yellow output arrow
The port will not generate output when running the translation.
