You create and send notification messages to all users connected to a repository.
You might want to send a message to notify users of scheduled repository maintenance or other tasks that require you to disable a PowerCenter Repository Service or run it in exclusive mode. For example, you might send a notification message to ask users to disconnect before you promote a local repository to a global repository.
Select the PowerCenter Repository Service in the Navigator.
Enter the message text.
The PowerCenter Repository Service sends the notification message to the PowerCenter Client users. A message box informs users that the notification was received. The message text appears on the Notifications tab of the PowerCenter Client Output window.
