Configuring the Metadata Access Service to Use Operating System Profiles

Configuring the Metadata Access Service to Use Operating System Profiles

Configure the Metadata Access Service to import and preview metadata from Hadoop clusters.
The operating system user you define in the operating system profile must have access to the directories you configure in the operating system profile and to the directories the Metadata Access Service accesses at design time.
Complete the following steps to configure the Metadata Access Service to use operating system profiles:
  1. Configure system permissions on the files and directories that the operating system profile user needs access at design time.
  2. In the Administrator tool, enable the Metadata Access Service to use operating system profiles.
  3. On the Security page of the Administrator tool, create operating system profiles.
    For more information on creating and managing operating system profiles, see the
    Informatica Security Guide
