Building a PowerCenter Repository Domain

Building a PowerCenter Repository Domain

Use the following steps as a guideline to connect separate PowerCenter repositories into a repository domain:
  1. Create a repository and configure it as a global repository. You can specify that a repository is the global repository when you create the PowerCenter Repository Service. Alternatively, you can promote an existing local repository to a global repository.
  2. Register local repositories with the global repository. After a local repository is registered, you can connect to the global repository from the local repository and you can connect to the local repository from the global repository.
  3. Create user accounts for users performing cross-repository work. A user who needs to connect to multiple repositories must have privileges for each PowerCenter Repository Service.
    When the global and local repositories exist in different Informatica domains, the user must have an identical user name, password, and security domain in each Informatica domain. Although the user name, password, and security domain must be the same, the user can be a member of different user groups and can have a different set of privileges for each PowerCenter Repository Service.
  4. Configure the user account used to access the repository associated with the PowerCenter Integration Service. To run a session that uses a global shortcut, the PowerCenter Integration Service must access the repository in which the mapping is saved and the global repository with the shortcut information. You enable this behavior by configuring the user account used to access the repository associated with the PowerCenter Integration Service. This user account must have privileges for the following services:
    • The local PowerCenter Repository Service associated with the PowerCenter Integration Service
    • The global PowerCenter Repository Service in the domain
