How is the Filter Transformation different from the Route Transformation?

The Filter transformation is used to filter out records that do not match a given condition. It does not keep any track of records that fail to satisfy a given rule. On the other hand, the Route Transformation invokes one or more paths in a dataflow, according to the specific decision logic(s) expressed as a set of rules. Using Route transformation, you can create a custom logic involving multiple paths and adapt it to suit your data processing scenario.
