Data Validation Tools

Data Validation Tools

Use the Data Validation tools to set up Data Validation Option and to configure and run validation tests.
Use the following tools to perform Data Validation Option administrator and user tasks:
Data Validation Client
Use the Data Validation Client to create views, table objects, and tests. Run the tests and view test results from within the Data Validation Client. You can also add PowerCenter repositories and repository folders to the Data Validation Client.
DVOcmd
Use the DVOcmd command line program to complete many of the same tasks that you perform in the Data Validation Client.
PowerCenter Client
Use the PowerCenter Client to create the target folder that stores the validation tests.
Informatica Administrator (the Administrator tool)
The Administrator tool is a web application that you use to manage the Informatica domain. Create application services and Data Validation Option users in the Administrator tool.
JasperReports
JasperReports is a third-party tool that integrates with Data Validation Option through the Reporting and Dashboards Service.
Effective in PowerCenter version 9.6.1 HotFix 4, Informatica deprecated the Reporting and Dashboards Service. You can download and install your own version of the recommended JasperReports Server to run Data Validation Option reports.
If you are using PowerCenter 10.1.1 or later, you can no longer use the Reporting and Dashboards Service as Informatica dropped support for the same.
