Global Objects Privilege Group

Global Objects Privilege Group

Privileges in the Global Objects privilege group and PowerCenter repository object permissions determine actions users can perform on the following global objects:
  • Connection objects
  • Deployment groups
  • Labels
  • Queries
Some global object tasks are determined by global object ownership and the Administrator role, not by privileges or permissions. The global object owner or a user assigned the Administrator role for the PowerCenter Repository Service can complete the following global object tasks:
  • Configure global object permissions.
  • Change the global object owner.
  • Delete the global object.
Users assigned permissions but no privileges can perform some actions for global objects. The following table lists the actions that users can perform when they are assigned permissions only:
