Purges profile and scorecard results from the profiling warehouse. The infacmd ps Purge command purges all the profile and scorecard results except for the results from the latest profile or scorecard run.
The infacmd ps Purge command uses the following syntax:
Purge <-DomainName|-dn> domain_name [<-Gateway|-hp> gateway_name] [<-NodeName|-nn>] node_name <-UserName|-un> user_name <-Password|-pd> Password [<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> security_domain] <-MrsServiceName|-msn> MRS_name <-DsServiceName|-dsn> data_integration_service_name <-ObjectType|-ot> object_type <-ObjectPathAndName|-opn> MRS_object_path [<-RetainDays|-rd> results_retain_days] [<-ProjectFolderPath|-pf> project_folder_path] [<-ProfileName|-pt> profile_task_name] [<-Recursive|-r> recursive] [<-PurgeAllResults|-pa> purge_all_results]
The following table describes infacmd ps Purge options and arguments:
Required. The 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.
Optional if you run the command from the Informatica installation \bin directory. Required if you run the command from another location.
The gateway node name.
Use the following syntax:
Required. The name of the node where the Data Integration Service runs.
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.
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.
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.
Required. The Model Repository Service name.
Required. The Data Integration Service name
Required. Enter profile or scorecard.
-opn *
Optional. Do not use with ProjectFolderPath or Recursive. The path to the profile or scorecard in the Model repository.
Use the following syntax:
Optional. Specifies the time range for the profile and scorecard results to be eligible for retention in the profiling warehouse. The Data Integration Service purges the rest of the profile and scorecard results.
For example, if you enter -rd 10, then the results from the current day and past nine days are retained and the rest of the results are purged from the profiling warehouse.
-pf *
Optional. Do not use with ObjectPathAndName or ProfileTaskName.
The names of the project and folder where the profile or scorecard is stored.
Use the following syntax:
-pt *
Optional. The name of the profile task that you want to purge. If a folder has only one profile, then you can use only the ProjectFolderPath option because the ProjectFolderPath includes the name of the profile that contains the profile task. If a folder has multiple profiles in a folder, then use the ProfileName option along with the ProjectFolderPath option to specify the profile name.
Optional. Do not use with ObjectPathAndName.
Applies the command to objects in the folder that you specify and its subfolders.
Optional. Set this option to purge all results for the profile or scorecard object.
Use with the -recursive option to apply the command to profile and scorecard results in the folder that you specify and its subfolders.
* To run the command, you need to specify ObjectPathAndName or ProjectFolderPath or ProfileTaskName.
