Step 1. Set up User Accounts

Step 1. Set up User Accounts

You set up Intelligent Data Lake user accounts in the same manner as other user accounts in the Informatica domain. You can create Native user accounts in the Informatica domain or import LDAP user accounts from an LDAP directory service into the domain.
You can set up the following types of user accounts:
Native user accounts
You can create native user accounts for Intelligent Data Lake. Native user accounts are created, stored, and managed in the Informatica domain.
LDAP user accounts
If you use LDAP or Kerberos authentication, you can import LDAP user accounts for Intelligent Data Lake. Use the Administrator tool to create an LDAP security domain and set up a connection to the LDAP server. Specify the users and groups from the LDAP directory service that can have access to Intelligent Data Lake. You can create a synchronization schedule to regularly synchronize the user accounts in the security domain and the LDAP server.
You can organize users into groups and assign privileges and data access based on the requirements of each group.
For more information about creating user accounts in the Informatica domain, see the
