Configuration Properties

Configuration Properties

You can configure session and miscellaneous properties, such as whether to enforce code page compatibility.
To edit the configuration properties, select the PowerCenter Integration Service in the Navigator, and then click the Properties view > Configuration Properties > Edit.
The following table describes the configuration properties:
Property
Description
XMLWarnDupRows
Writes duplicate row warnings and duplicate rows for XML targets to the session log.
Default is Yes.
CreateIndicatorFiles
Creates indicator files when you run a workflow with a flat file target.
Default is No.
OutputMetaDataForFF
Writes column headers to flat file targets. The PowerCenter Integration Service writes the target definition port names to the flat file target in the first line, starting with the # symbol.
Default is No.
TreatDBPartitionAsPassThrough
Uses pass-through partitioning for non-DB2 targets when the partition type is Database Partitioning. Enable this option if you specify Database Partitioning for a non-DB2 target. Otherwise, the PowerCenter Integration Service fails the session.
Default is No.
ExportSessionLogLibName
Name of an external shared library to handle session event messages. Typically, shared libraries in Windows have a file name extension of .dll. In UNIX, shared libraries have a file name extension of .sl.
If you specify a shared library and the PowerCenter Integration Service encounters an error when loading the library or getting addresses to the functions in the shared library, then the session will fail.
The library name you specify can be qualified with an absolute path. If you do not provide the path for the shared library, the PowerCenter Integration Service will locate the shared library based on the library path environment variable specific to each platform.
TreatNullInComparisonOperatorsAs
Determines how the PowerCenter Integration Service evaluates null values in comparison operations. Specify one of the following options:
  • Null. The PowerCenter Integration Service evaluates null values as NULL in comparison expressions. If either operand is NULL, the result is NULL.
  • High. The PowerCenter Integration Service evaluates null values as greater than non-null values in comparison expressions. If both operands are NULL, the PowerCenter Integration Service evaluates them as equal. When you choose High, comparison expressions never result in NULL.
  • Low. The PowerCenter Integration Service evaluates null values as less than non-null values in comparison expressions. If both operands are NULL, the PowerCenter Integration Service treats them as equal. When you choose Low, comparison expressions never result in NULL.
Default is NULL.
WriterWaitTimeOut
In target-based commit mode, the amount of time in seconds the writer remains idle before it issues a commit when the following conditions are true:
  • The PowerCenter Integration Service has written data to the target.
  • The PowerCenter Integration Service has not issued a commit.
The PowerCenter Integration Service may commit to the target before or after the configured commit interval.
Minimum value is 60. Maximum value is 2147483647. Default is 60. If you configure the timeout to be 0 or a negative number, the PowerCenter Integration Service defaults to 60 seconds.
MSExchangeProfile
Microsoft Exchange profile used by the Service Start Account to send post-session email. The Service Start Account must be set up as a Domain account to use this feature.
DateDisplayFormat
Date format the PowerCenter Integration Service uses in log entries.
The PowerCenter Integration Service validates the date format you enter. If the date display format is invalid, the PowerCenter Integration Service uses the default date display format.
Default is DY MON DD HH24:MI:SS YYYY.
ValidateDataCodePages
Enforces data code page compatibility.
Disable this option to lift restrictions for source and target data code page selection, stored procedure and lookup database code page selection, and session sort order selection. The PowerCenter Integration Service performs data code page validation in Unicode data movement mode only. Option available if you run the PowerCenter Integration Service in Unicode data movement mode. Option disabled if you run the PowerCenter Integration Service in ASCII data movement mode.
Default is Yes.
