PowerCenter Integration Service Properties

PowerCenter Integration Service Properties

You can set the values for the service variables at the service level. You can override some of the PowerCenter Integration Service variables at the session level or workflow level. To override the properties, configure the properties for the session or workflow.
To edit the service properties, select the PowerCenter Integration Service in the Navigator, and then click the Properties view. Edit the PowerCenter Integration Service Properties section.
The following table describes the service properties:
Property
Description
DataMovementMode
Mode that determines how the PowerCenter Integration Service handles character data.
In ASCII mode, the PowerCenter Integration Service recognizes 7-bit ASCII and EBCDIC characters and stores each character in a single byte. Use ASCII mode when all sources and targets are 7-bit ASCII or EBCDIC character sets.
In Unicode mode, the PowerCenter Integration Service recognizes multibyte character sets as defined by supported code pages. Use Unicode mode when sources or targets use 8-bit or multibyte character sets and contain character data.
Default is ASCII.
To apply changes, restart the PowerCenter Integration Service.
$PMSuccessEmailUser
Service variable that specifies the email address of the user to receive email messages when a session completes successfully. Use this variable for the Email User Name attribute for success email. If multiple email addresses are associated with a single user, messages are sent to all of the addresses.
If the Integration Service runs on UNIX, you can enter multiple email addresses separated by a comma. If the Integration Service runs on Windows, you can enter multiple email addresses separated by a semicolon or use a distribution list. The PowerCenter Integration Service does not expand this variable when you use it for any other email type.
$PMFailureEmailUser
Service variable that specifies the email address of the user to receive email messages when a session fails to complete. Use this variable for the Email User Name attribute for failure email. If multiple email addresses are associated with a single user, messages are sent to all of the addresses.
If the Integration Service runs on UNIX, you can enter multiple email addresses separated by a comma. If the Integration Service runs on Windows, you can enter multiple email addresses separated by a semicolon or use a distribution list. The PowerCenter Integration Service does not expand this variable when you use it for any other email type.
$PMSessionLogCount
Service variable that specifies the number of session logs the PowerCenter Integration Service archives for the session.
Minimum value is 0. Default is 0.
$PMWorkflowLogCount
Service variable that specifies the number of workflow logs the PowerCenter Integration Service archives for the workflow.
Minimum value is 0. Default is 0.
$PMSessionErrorThreshold
Service variable that specifies the number of non-fatal errors the PowerCenter Integration Service allows before failing the session. Non-fatal errors include reader, writer, and DTM errors. If you want to stop the session on errors, enter the number of non-fatal errors you want to allow before stopping the session. The PowerCenter Integration Service maintains an independent error count for each source, target, and transformation. Use to configure the Stop On option in the session properties.
Defaults to 0. If you use the default setting 0, non-fatal errors do not cause the session to stop.
