JDBC URL
JDBC connection URL used to access the TDM repository database.
Enter the JDBC URL in the following format:
  • Oracle: jdbc:informatica:oracle://<host name>:<port>;ServiceName=<service name>
  • IBM DB2: jdbc:informatica:db2://<host name>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
  • Microsoft SQL Server: jdbc:informatica:sqlserver://<host name>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
Connection String
Native connect string to the TDM repository database. The Test Data Manager Service uses the connect string to create a connection object to the TDM repository and the PowerCenter repository or Model repository. To apply changes, restart the Test Data Manager Service.
Schema Name
Available for Microsoft SQL Server. Name of the schema for the database. If not selected, the service creates the tables in the default schema.
Tablespace Name
Available for DB2. Name of the tablespace in which to create the tables. You must define the tablespace on a single node and the page size must be 32 KB. In a multipartition database, you must select this option. In a single-partition database, if you do not select this option, the installer creates the tables in the default tablespace.
Creation options for the New Test Data Manager Service
Options to create content, or use existing content, and upgrade existing content.
  • Do not create new content. Creates the repository without creating content. Select this option if the database content exists. If the content is of a previous version, the service prompts you to upgrade the content to the current version.
    • Previous Test Data Manager Service Name: Enter the name of the previous Test Data Manager Service. Required if you create the service with a different name.
      If you create the Test Data Manager Service with a different name, the source and target connections do not appear in Test Data Manager. Import the connections again if the connections do not appear in Test Data Manager.
    • Upgrade TDM Repository Contents. Upgrades the content to the current version.
  • Create new content. Creates repository content.
