Creating a Single Data Object Profile in Informatica Developer

Creating a Single Data Object Profile in Informatica Developer

You can create a single data object profile for one or more columns in a data object and store the profile object in the Model repository.
  1. In the
    Object Explorer
    view, select the data object you want to profile.
  2. Click
    to open the profile wizard.
  3. Select
    and click
  4. Enter a name for the profile and verify the project location. If required, browse to a new location.
  5. Optionally, enter a text description of the profile.
  6. Verify that the name of the data object you selected appears in the
    Data Objects
  7. Click
  8. Configure the profile operations that you want to perform. You can configure the following operations:
    • Column profiling
    • Primary key discovery
    • Functional dependency discovery
    • Data domain discovery
    To enable a profile operation, select
    Enabled as part of the "Run Profile" action
    for that operation. Column profiling is enabled by default.
  9. Review the options for your profile.
    You can edit the column selection for all profile types. Review the filter and sampling options for column profiles. You can review the inference options for primary key, functional dependency, and data domain discovery. You can also review data domain selection for data domain discovery.
  10. Review the drill-down options, and edit them if necessary. By default, the
    Enable Row Drilldown
    option is selected. You can edit drill-down options for column profiles. The options also determine whether drill-down operations read from the data source or from staged data, and whether the profile stores result data from previous profile runs.
  11. In the
    Run Settings
    section, choose a run-time environment. Choose
    as the run-time environment. After you choose the Hadoop option, you can select a Hadoop connection.
