Data Validation Repositories

Data Validation Repositories

Data Validation Option uses repository databases to store mapping metadata, testing metadata, and testing results. The databases that you use depend on the functionality that you implement.
The following repositories integrate with Data Validation Option:
PowerCenter repository
The PowerCenter repository contains mappings based on the tests that you create in the Data Validation Client. It also contains all the mappings and connections that you create within the PowerCenter Client. Create a separate folder in the PowerCenter repository to store the tests that you create in the Data Validation Client.
Data Validation Option repository
The Data Validation Option repository contains the test results. You can generate reports based on the repository views.
JasperSoft repository (Deprecated in PowerCenter Version 9.6.1 HotFix 4)
The JasperSoft repository stores JasperReports based on the test results in the Data Validation Option repository. You can integrate Data Validation Option with JasperReports.
Metadata Manager repository
The Metadata Manager repository stores metadata models. You can run data lineage in Metadata Manager to analyze the data flow and to identify possible causes of invalid data in data validation tests.
