Creating a Connection to Access Sources or Targets

Creating a Connection to Access Sources or Targets

Create an HBase, HDFS, Hive, or JDBC connection before you import data objects, preview data, and profile data.
  1. Click
    Window
    Preferences
    .
  2. Select
    Informatica
    Connections
    .
  3. Expand the domain in the
    Available Connections
    list.
  4. Select the type of connection that you want to create:
    • To select an HBase connection, select
      NoSQL
      HBase
      .
    • To select an HDFS connection, select
      File Systems
      Hadoop File System
      .
    • To select a Hive connection, select
      Database
      Hive
      .
    • To select a JDBC connection, select
      Database
      JDBC
      .
  5. Click
    Add
    .
  6. Enter a connection name and optional description.
  7. Click
    Next
    .
  8. Configure the connection properties. For a Hive connection, you must choose the
    Access Hive as a source or target
    option to use Hive as a source or a target. The
    Access Hive to run mappings in Hadoop cluster
    options is no more applicable. To use the Hive driver to run mappings in the Hadoop cluster, use a Hadoop connection.
  9. Click
    Test Connection
    to verify the connection.
  10. Click
    Finish
