Copying Breakpoint Information and Configuration

Copying Breakpoint Information and Configuration

The Designer stores breakpoint information and Debugger configuration in the workspace files. If you copy a mapping or create a shortcut to another folder, or if you want to debug the mapping from another PowerCenter Client machine, you can transfer the breakpoints and configuration using the Save Configuration and Load Configuration options on the Debugger menu.
To save breakpoints and configuration associated with a mapping:
  1. Open the mapping with breakpoints and configuration that you want to save.
  2. Click Mappings > Debugger > Save Configuration.
  3. Save the file with a .dcf extension.
  4. When you choose an existing .dcf file, the Designer appends the configuration information to the file.
  5. If the file contains configuration information for the mapping, the Designer prompts you to verify that you want to overwrite the configuration.
