Creating an Operating System Profile for Enterprise Data Preparation

Creating an Operating System Profile for
Enterprise Data Preparation

Create an operating system profile to provide a level of security to users and groups in the run-time environment. The Data Integration Service you have associated with the
Enterprise Data Preparation Service
uses the operating system profile of the user to run workflows or jobs. Ensure that the assigned license allows you to use the operating system profiles feature.
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Security
    tab.
  2. On the Security Actions menu, click
    Create Operating System Profile
    .
    The
    Create Operating System Profile
    dialog box appears.
  3. Enter the following general properties for the operating system profile:
    Property
    Description
    Name
    Name of the operating system profile. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. It cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain the following special characters:
    % * + \ / . ? < >
    The name can contain an ASCII space character except for the first and last character. All other space characters are not allowed.
    System User Name
    Name of an operating system user that exists on the machines where the Data Integration Service runs. The Data Integration Service runs workflows or jobs using the system access of the system user defined for the operating system profile.
    When you create operating system profiles, you cannot specify the system user name as root or use a non-root user with uid==0.

The Data Integration Service writes output files to a single shared location specified in the $DISRootDir service process variable.
  7. Select
    Enable Hadoop Impersonation Properties
    .
  8. Choose to use the logged in user or specify a Hadoop impersonation user to run Hadoop jobs. For a secure Hadoop cluster, the logged in user or the user specified as the Hadoop impersonation user should be valid and have the required permissions in the cluster nodes.
  9. Optionally, configure the environment variables.
  10. Click
    Next
    .

    Assign Groups and Users to Operating System Profile
