Rules and Guidelines

Rules and Guidelines

Refer to the rules and guidelines to use the Data Integration Service REST API.
Consider the following general rules and guidelines when you use the Data Integration Service REST API:

General Rules and Guidelines

  • The timezone attribute accepts values only from java.time.ZoneID(). For example, IST is not supported.
  • Passwords that are encrypted using the pmpasswd utility must be encrypted using the option
  • Query parameters are not case sensitive.
  • When you define enumeration data type, don't use white space. The enumeration data type is case-sensitive.
  • Reserved characters in older clients must be percent-encoded.
  • When you compare two mappings that are different, the compare report shows the internal descriptions of the data types.
  • When you compare two mappings that are different and contains Java transformations, the compare report shows Java Bytecode, byte code length as Java.bytecodeLen, and checksum as Java.checkSum.
  • When you compare two mappings and use Blaze as the execution environment, the compare report shows engine as CADIYarnExecutionEngine instead of Blaze.

Application Patch Rules and Guidelines

  • When you deploy objects to an application patch archive file, the default location of the file is $INFA_HOME/tomcat/bin/target. If the Data Integration Service is configured to use operating system profiles and you specify the operating system profile, the archive file is written to $DISTargetDir instead.
  • When you deploy objects to an application patch archive file, you can specify mapping deployment properties to override the default mapping deployment properties. Specify each mapping deployment property as a name-value pair. For information about the mapping deployment properties, see the
    Informatica Developer Tool Guide
  • When you deploy objects to an application patch archive file, the result of the query must contain at least one object that can be run, such as a mapping.
  • When you deploy objects to an application patch archive file and use the archive to deploy the application to another domain, the archive files must be saved to a shared disk location.
