Informatica Development Platform

This section describes new features and enhancements to the Informatica Development Platform.
Effective in version 10.1, you can use the following features in the Informatica Connector Toolkit:
Pre-defined type system
When you create a connector that uses REST APIs to connect to the data source, you can use pre-defined data types. You can use the following Informatica Platform data types:
  • string
  • integer
  • bigInteger
  • decimal
  • double
  • binary
  • date
Procedure pattern
When you create a connector for Informatica Cloud, you can define native metadata objects for procedures in data sources. You can use the following options to define the native metadata object for a procedure:
Manually create the native metadata object
When you define the native metadata objects manually, you can specify the following details:
Metadata Component
Description
Procedure extension
Additional metadata information that you can specify for a procedure.
Parameter extension
Additional metadata information that you can specify for parameters.
Call capability attributes
Additional metadata information that you can specify to create a read or write call to a procedure.
Use swagger specifications
When you use swagger specifications to define the native metadata object, you can either use an existing swagger specification or you can generate a swagger specification by sampling the REST end point.
Edit common metadata
You can specify common metadata information for Informatica Cloud connectors, such as schema name and foreign key name.
Export the connector files for Informatica Cloud
After you design and implement the connector components, you can export the connector files for Informatica Cloud by specifying the plug-in ID and plug-in version.
Export the connector files for PowerCenter
After you design and implement the connector components, you can export the connector files for PowerCenter by specifying the PowerCenter version.
