Data Validation Reports

Data Validation Option stores all test definitions and test results in the Data Validation Option repository. You can run reports to display test definitions and results.
You can use the BIRT reporting engine to generate the reports on one or more table objects. For example, you can run the Summary of Testing Activities report to determine the number of table pairs or single tables, the number of tests for each table pair or single table, and the overall test results.
You can use JasperReports Server to generate the reports and dashboards. A dashboard displays the test results from one or more reports.
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.
You can also build custom reports based on the Data Validation Option reporting views.
