Data Validation Option User Guide

RefreshRepository

RefreshRepository

Refreshes a source or target repository. You can run this command on Windows or UNIX.
The
RefreshRepository
command uses the following syntax:
DVOCmd RefreshRepository repo_name [--confdir conf_dir] [--username User name] [--password Password] [--ePassword Password Environment Variable] [--namespace Namespace] [--all] [--connections] [--folderList] [--allFolders] [--folder folder_name] [--dryrun]
The following table describes
RefreshRepository
options and arguments:
Option
Argument
Description
-
repo_name
Name of the repository you want to refresh.
This can take several minutes to several hours depending on the size of the repository.
--confdir
conf_dir
The user configuration directory. Specify the configuration directory if you have multiple Data Validation Option repositories on a client machine. If you have one Data Validation Option repository on a client machine and have not changed the configuration directory, you do not need to specify this option.
Use double-quotes if the path has space or special characters.
--username
User name
Informatica domain user name for the domain to which you configured Informatica authentication.
Required if you configure Informatica authentication.
--password
Password
Password for the Informatica user name.
Required if you configure Informatica authentication.
If you set the
password
option, then do not set the
ePassword
option.
--ePassword
Password Environment Variable
Encrypted form of the password of the Informatica user name.
Use the DVOCmd EncryptPassword command to encrypt the password. Set an environment variable to the encrypted password and use the variable in the
ePassword
option. The command replaces the environment variable with the encrypted password and then decrypts the password.
If you set the
ePassword
option, then do not set the
password
option. If the command contains both the
password
and
ePassword
options, then the Data Validation Option uses the
ePassword
and ignores the
password.
--namespace
Namespace
Namespace of the LDAP domain.
Required if you configure Informatica Authentication with LDAP domain.
--all
-
Refreshes all source, target, folder, and connection metadata for the repository.
This option can take several minutes to several hours based on the sources and targets in the PowerCenter repository. You can use the option to check whether the import from PowerCenter repository works.
--connections
-
Refreshes connection metadata for the target repository.
--folderList
-
Refreshes the folder list for the repository.
--allFolders
-
Refreshes source and target metadata in all folders in the repository.
--folder
FolderA
Refreshes source and target metadata for the named folders. Use commas to separate multiple folder named.
If the folder name or external ID contains commas, spaces, or special characters, you will need to use different syntax.
--dryrun
-
Verifies if the import from the PowerCenter Repository works. The dryrun command reads the sources and targets in the PowerCenter Repository Service, but does not write the objects into the Data Validation Option repository.
