Informatica Analyst Fixed Limitations

Review the Release Notes of previous releases for information about previous fixed limitations.
The following table describes fixed limitations:
When you set up the profiling warehouse on Microsoft SQL Server, then you cannot detect outliers in the profile results.
The X-axis in the
Scorecards by Project
pane in the scorecard dashboard does not display the complete project name when the project name exceeds 10 characters.
After you import a complex file data object that contains a Binary column into the Developer tool, the Data column for the data object in the Data Preview pane of the Analyst tool displays <binary></binary> instead of <binary>.
The TIMELASTSAVED value is not updated in the latest profile run after you import a profile definition and run the column profile.
When you run a column profile, the outlier detections sometimes runs for a long time and the Analyst tool stops responding.
When a commit fails while the Search Service is building an index, the Search Service runs out of memory in the internal cache.
In an Informatica domain enabled for Kerberos authentication, a user with read permission on a project cannot open a data object.
Non-administrator users cannot access projects when the connection to the Model repository times out.
When the Model repository contains corrupted metadata, the Analyst Service does not start.
In an Informatica domain enabled for Kerberos authentication, Analyst tool logs out the user when creating a new mapping specification.
When a user creates a table data object, the Analyst tool might take up to three minutes to list connections or projects if the user is not an Administrator.
In the detailed view of profile results, you can use the drilldown option in the
menu for data domains. You cannot drill down on a row.
When you have more than 60 data objects in a folder in a project and you click
, you can view only 60 data objects and the
option does not appear.
When you export/import a mapping specification to a new project, the mapping specification with aggregator condition changes or becomes invalid.
When you create a flat file data object and the flat file cache location is not configured, the Analyst tool hangs.
If you create a reference table from a column of profile data, the Analyst tool displays a Data Validation license error.
When you create a column profile on a Hive table and then you add an SQL filter to the profile, the profile run fails.
The error
Unable to run scorecard
appears when the following conditions are true:
  1. In 9.5.x version, you create a scorecard on a relational data object or flat file data object and you create a second scorecard on a mapping specification.
  2. You upgrade the domain from 9.5.x version to 9.6.x version.
  3. You open the first scorecard in 9.6.x version, the scorecard appears successfully.
  4. You open the second scorecard in 9.6.x version.
When you click the link to a column profile in the
Related Assets
section of the business term, the Analyst tool displays the
workspace but does not display the column profile.
When you open an enterprise discovery profile, the profile header displays <taskname>:<taskname>, instead of <EDD_name>:<taskname>.
When you create PowerCenter Repository Service with MS Windows Latin 1 (ANSI) superset of Latin1 codepage and you try to export the mapping specification to the PowerCenter repository, the repository connection fails.
When a column name has @, %, #, or +, you cannot view the profile results for the column in detailed view and the compare profile run fails for the column.
In the
tab the Business Glossary Desktop application displays unsupported business term properties.
During the approval workflow, the Analyst tool does not warn the approver that a voting task cannot be delegated to a user group.
You receive a null pointer exception when you enable version control system and then create and run a column profile with data domain discovery that has the following options:
  • Choose a data domain.
  • Choose
    as the sampling option.
  • Choose
    as the drilldown option.
When version control system is enabled, the
option for the enterprise discovery profile does not appear when the following conditions are true:
  1. Create an enterprise discovery profile.
  2. Check in the profile.
  3. Click
    to edit the profile.
  4. You receive a message to checkout the profile. Check out the profile.
Workaround: Open and run each profile task.
You cannot create a scorecard on a VSAM, Adabas, or IMS nonrelational z/OS data.
No drilldown results appear when the following conditions are true:
  1. Create and run a column profile.
  2. In the detailed view for the column that has Integer data type, select some values and create a data domain.
  3. Edit the profile to add column profile with data domain discovery, and select the new data domain with a minimum conformance of 1%.
  4. Run the profile.
  5. In the detailed view for the column with the Integer data type, click the inferred data domain, and drill down on the conforming rows.
  6. Check the
    Data Preview
When you import a custom business term property of date data type, and when it does not contain any data, the Business Glossary Desktop displays the date
31st December 1969
against the property.
The Analyst tool does not permit a subsequent glossary import task to run if the user closed the browser while the previous import task was in progress.
The Search Service might fail multiple times and generate many exception errors in the search log file. The search index becomes large.
You receive a null pointer exception when you try to add a JSON or XML profile results to an existing relational scorecard.
The data preview for social media based sources fails to work in the Analyst tool.
Anyone with access to the remote directory that the Analyst tool uses to store attachments can delete the files attached to the Glossary assets.
Anyone with access to the remote directory that the Analyst tool uses to store attachments can view the files that the content managers attach to the Glossary assets.
When a Data Integration Service grid contains Windows nodes and the service is configured to run jobs in separate remote processes, the Add Flat File wizard stops responding if the Data Integration Service cannot access the flat file cache directory. The wizard should display an error message indicating that the flat file cache directory is not accessible.
When you configure the Informatica domain to use Kerberos network authentication to authenticate users and services on a network you cannot use the advanced approval workflow in Business Glossary.
The performance of the mapping specification increases, when you configure mapping specification to use pushdown optimization during the deployment.
When you create a profile with the JD Edward, LDAP, Microsoft Dynamics CRM, SAP (New App based SDK), Salesforce, ODATA, Teradata (Native), or Netezza (Native) data sources in the Developer tool, you can open and view the profile results in the Analyst tool but you cannot edit the profile.
The Analyst tool cannot export a mapping specification to Excel on a domain that uses Kerberos authentication.
The Analyst tool takes a long time to save the profile when the following conditions are true:
  1. You create a column profile.
  2. You add or remove a rule in the profile.
  3. You save the profile.
