Creating and Deleting Repository Content

Creating and Deleting Repository Content

You can create and delete contents for the following repositories used by Metadata Manager:
  • Metadata Manager repository. Create the Metadata Manager warehouse tables and import models for metadata sources into the Metadata Manager repository.
  • PowerCenter repository. Restore a repository backup file packaged with PowerCenter to the PowerCenter repository database. The repository backup file includes the metadata objects used by Metadata Manager to load metadata into the Metadata Manager warehouse. When you restore the repository, the Service Manager creates a folder named Metadata Load in the PowerCenter repository. The Metadata Load folder contains the metadata objects, including sources, targets, sessions, and workflows.
The tasks you complete depend on whether the Metadata Manager repository contains contents or if the PowerCenter repository contains the PowerCenter objects for Metadata Manager.
The following table describes the tasks you must complete for each repository:
Repository
Condition
Action
Metadata Manager repository
Does not have content.
Create the Metadata Manager repository.
Metadata Manager repository

No action.
PowerCenter repository

Restore the PowerCenter repository if the PowerCenter Repository Service runs in exclusive mode.
PowerCenter repository
Has content.
No action if the PowerCenter repository has the objects required for Metadata Manager in the Metadata Load folder. The Service Manager imports the required objects from an XML file when you enable the service.
