Using the Object Import Control File

Using the Object Import Control File

When you use the
ObjectImport command, you can supply a control file to answer questions that you normally address when you import objects with the Import Wizard. To create a control file, you must create an XML file defined by impcntl.dtd. The import control file is installed with the PowerCenter Client, and you must include its location in the input XML file.
The following is a sample of the impcntl.dtd file:
<!-- Informatica Object Import Control DTD Grammar - > <!--IMPORTPARAMS This inputs the options and inputs required for import operation --> <!--CHECKIN_AFTER_IMPORT Check in objects on successful import operation --> <!--CHECKIN_COMMENTS Check in comments --> <!--APPLY_LABEL_NAME Apply the given label name on imported objects --> <!--RETAIN_GENERATED_VALUE Retain existing sequence generator, normalizer and XML DSQ current values in the destination --> <!--COPY_SAP_PROGRAM Copy SAP program information into the target repository --> <!--APPLY_DEFAULT_CONNECTION Apply the default connection when a connection used by a session does not exist in the target repository --> <!ELEMENT IMPORTPARAMS (FOLDERMAP*, TYPEFILTER*, RESOLVECONFLICT?)> <!ATTLIST IMPORTPARAMS CHECKIN_AFTER_IMPORT (YES | NO) "NO" CHECKIN_COMMENTS CDATA #IMPLIED APPLY_LABEL_NAME CDATA #IMPLIED RETAIN_GENERATED_VALUE (YES | NO) "NO" COPY_SAP_PROGRAM (YES | NO) "YES" APPLY_DEFAULT_CONNECTION (YES | NO) "NO" > <!--FOLDERMAP matches the folders in the imported file with the folders in the target repository --> <!ELEMENT FOLDERMAP EMPTY> <!ATTLIST FOLDERMAP SOURCEFOLDERNAME CDATA #REQUIRED        SOURCEREPOSITORYNAME CDATA #REQUIRED TARGETFOLDERNAME CDATA #REQUIRED TARGETREPOSITORYNAME CDATA #REQUIRED > <!--Import will only import the objects in the selected types in TYPEFILTER node --> <!--TYPENAME type name to import.
