RunMapping

RunMapping

Runs a mapping that is deployed to a Data Integration Service. You can run the mapping with a parameter set or a parameter file.
To create a parameter file for a mapping, run infacmd ms ListMappingParams.
Before you run infacmd ms ListMappingParams, run the infacmd dis StartApplication command for the application.
To view the parameters and values for a parameter set, run the command infacmd dis ListParameterSetEntries.
The infacmd ms RunMapping command uses the following syntax:
RunMapping <-DomainName|-dn> domain_name <-ServiceName|-sn> service_name <-UserName|-un> user_name <-Password|-pd> password [<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain] [<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> timeout_period_in_seconds] <-Application|-a> application_name <-Mapping|-m> mapping_name [<-Wait|-w> true|false] [<-ParameterFile|-pf> parameter_file_path] [<-ParameterSet|-ps> parameter_set_name] [<-OperatingSystemProfile|-osp> operating_system_profile_name] [<-NodeName|-nn> node_name] [<-OptimizationLevel|-ol> optimization_level] [<-PushdownType|-pt> pushdown_type] [<-CustomProperties|-cp> custom_properties]
The command returns the job ID for the mapping run.
The following table describes infacmd ms RunMapping options and arguments:
Option
Argument
Description
-DomainName
-dn
domain_name
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
-ServiceName
-sn
service_name
Required. Name of the Data Integration Service to run the mapping. The application that contains the mapping must be deployed to a Data Integration Service.
-UserName
-un
user_name
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
-Password
-pd
password
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
-SecurityDomain
-sdn
security_domain
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
-ResilienceTimeout
-re
timeout_period_in_seconds
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. You can set the resilience timeout period with the -re option or the environment variable INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT. If you set a the resilience timeout perioud with both methods, the -re option takes precedence.
-Application
-a
application_name
Required. Name of the application that contains the mapping.
-Mapping
-m
mapping_name
Required. Name of the mapping to run.
-Wait
-w
true|false
Optional. Indicates whether infacmd waits for the mapping to complete before returning to the shell or command prompt. If true, infacmd returns to the shell or command prompt after the mapping completes. You cannot run subsequent commands until the mapping completes. If false, infacmd returns to the shell or command prompt immediately. You do not have to wait for the mapping to complete before running the next command. Default is false.
-ParameterFile
-pf
parameter_file_path
Optional. Name and path of the parameter file. Do not enter a parameter file and a parameter set.
-ParameterSet
-ps
parameter_set_name
Optional. Name of a parameter set to use at run time. The parameter set option overrides any parameter set deployed with the application. Do not enter a parameter set and a parameter file.
-OperatingSystemProfile
-osp
operating_system_profile_name
Optional. Name of the operating system profile to run the mapping.
If you do not use this option when the Data Integration Service is enabled to use operating system profiles, the Data Integration Service runs the mapping with the default profile.
-NodeName
-nn
node_name
Optional. Name of the node in a Data Integration Service grid to dispatch the mapping job to. A Data Integration Service process must be running on the node.
If you do not use this option, the mapping job is dispatched to the node where the master Data Integration Service process runs.
-OptimizationLevel
-ol
optimization_level
Optional. Controls the optimization methods that the Data Integration Service applies to the mapping. Enter the numeric value that is associated with the optimization level that you want to configure. Enter one of the following numeric values:
  • 0 (None). The Data Integration Service does not apply any optimization.
  • 1 (Minimal). The Data Integration Service applies the early projection optimization method.
  • 2 (Normal). The Data Integration Service applies the early projection, early selection, branch pruning, push-into, pushdown, and predicate optimization methods. Normal is the default optimization level.
  • 3 (Full). The Data Integration Service applies the cost-based, early projection, early selection, branch pruning, predicate, push-into, pushdown, and semi-join optimization methods.
If you do not use this option, the Data Integration Service applies the optimization level configured in the mapping properties for the deployed application in the Administrator tool.
-PushdownType
-pt
pushdown_type
Optional. Controls the pushdown type that the Data Integration Service applies to a mapping. Enter one of the following values:
  • None. Select no pushdown type for the mapping.
  • Source. The Data Integration Service tries to push down as much transformation logic as it can to the source database.
  • Full. The Data Integration Service pushes the full transformation logic to the source database.
This option overrides the pushdown type set in the mapping run-time properties or in a parameter file or parameter set.
If you do not use this option, the Data Integration Service applies the pushdown type set in the mapping run-time properties or in a parameter file or parameter set.
-CustomProperties
-cp
custom_properties
Optional. Define custom properties for a mapping at the request of Informatica Global Customer Support.
Enter custom properties as name-value pairs separated by semicolons. For example:
... -cp custom_property_name=value
To enter a value that contains a space or other non-alphanumeric character, enclose the value in quotation marks.
