Configuring Data Lineage Access

Configuring Data Lineage Access

To configure PowerCenter and Metadata Manager to display lineage for PowerCenter objects, complete the following tasks:
  1. Make sure Metadata Manager is running.
    Create a Metadata Manager Service in the Informatica Administrator or verify that an enabled Metadata Manager Service exists in the domain that contains the PowerCenter repository you want to run data lineage analysis on.
  2. Load the PowerCenter repository metadata.
    Create a resource for the PowerCenter repository in Metadata Manager and load the PowerCenter repository metadata into the Metadata Manager warehouse.
  3. Set up the connection between the PowerCenter repository and Metadata Manager.
    Configure the Metadata Manager Service and the resource name for the PowerCenter repository in the Administrator tool.
  4. Configure the web browser.
    When you run data lineage analysis on a PowerCenter object, the Designer launches data lineage analysis in the default browser configured for your system. Data lineage requires the Flash 9 viewer installed on the browser.
