Import

Import

Performs a metadata and data import from object export files. Imports reference table metadata into the Model repository and imports the data into the reference data database. Also imports reference data without the metadata.
Before you import reference table data, the destination project must exist in the Model repository.
The infacmd rtm Import command uses the following syntax:
Import <-DomainName|-dn> Domain name <-UserName|-un> User name <-Password|-pd> Password <-securityDomain|-sdn> Security domain [<-Gateway|-hp> Domain gateway host:port] [<-NodeName|-nn> Node name] <-RepositoryService|-rs> Model Repository Service name <-CodePage|-cp> Code page <-ConflictResolution|-cr> Conflict resolution <-ImportType|-it> Import type <-Folder|-f> The folder to import from [<-FileName|-fn> Required only for importing a single dictionary] [<-MetadataFile|-mf> Required only for Object import] [<-ProjectFolder|-pf> Name of the project folder to import into] [<-NotRecursive|-nr> Don't include subfolders]
The following table describes infacmd rtm Import options and arguments:
Option
Argument
Description
-DomainName
-dn
Domain name
Required. Name of the Informatica domain.
You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable
INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN
. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
-UserName
-un
User name
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
-Password
-pd
Password
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
-securityDomain
-sdn
Security domain
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
-Gateway
-hp
Domain gateway host:port
Required if the gateway connectivity information in the domains.infa file is out of date. Host name and port number for the gateway node in the domain. Use the following syntax:
gateway_hostname:HttpPort
-NodeName
-nn
Node name
Optional. Name of the gateway node for the Model Repository Service.
-RepositoryService
-rs
Model Repository Service name
Required. Model Repository Service name.
-CodePage
-cp
Code page
Required. Code page for the reference data.
-ConflictResolution
-cr
Conflict resolution
Required. Defines the behavior when a name conflict occurs.
Enter one of the following arguments:
  • Replace. Replace the current reference table object with the object that you import.
  • Rename. Create a reference table object with a different name.
  • Skip. Do not import the reference table.
The Replace argument specifies the resolution policy for the reference table object and not for the underlying table in the reference data database. When you use the Replace argument, the import command creates a table for the data that the new object represents in the reference data database. The command does not drop the table that the previous object identified.
To remove unused tables from the reference data database, run the infacmd cms Purge command.
-ImportType
-it
Import type
Required. The type of content to import. Enter MetadataAndData for metadata and data import.
-Folder
-f
The folder to import from
Required for metadata and data import. Full path to the folder that contains the reference data file you want to import.
-FileName
-fn
Required only for importing a single dictionary
Required for metadata and data import if you are importing data from a single file. Name of the file that contains the reference data you want to import. The file name is relative to the folder path.
-MetadataFile
-mf
Required only for Object import
Required when you import reference data values only. Full path and name for the metadata.xml file that you apply the command to. The metadata.xml file contains the metadata associated with the reference data values. Do not use with the ProjectFolder option.
-ProjectFolder
-pf
Name of the project folder to import into
Required when you import reference data and metadata. Name of the Model repository project that you want to import into. Do not use with the MetadataFile option.
-NotRecursive
-nr
- Don't include subfolders
Optional. Use with metadata and data import. Import one level of objects only. Default is recursive.
