Operating System Profiles

Operating System Profiles

An operating system profile is a type of security that the Data Integration Service uses to run mappings, workflows, and profiling jobs. Use operating system profiles to increase security and to isolate the run-time environment for users.
If the Data Integration Service runs on UNIX or Linux, create operating system profiles and configure the Data Integration Service to use operating system profiles. By default, the Data Integration Service process runs all jobs, mappings, and workflows using the permissions of the operating system user that starts Informatica services. For more information about Data Integration Service operating system profiles, see the
Informatica Application Service Guide.
When you create the
Enterprise Data Preparation Service
, you must associate it with a Data Integration Service. The operating system profile configuration for the associated Data Integration Service will be applicable to the
Enterprise Data Preparation Service
.
