Folders Privilege Group

Folders Privilege Group

Folder management actions are determined by privileges in the Folders privilege group, PowerCenter repository object permissions, and domain object permissions. Users perform folder management actions in the Repository Manager and with the pmrep command line program.

  • Assign operating system profiles to folders if the PowerCenter Integration Service uses operating system profiles. Requires permission on the operating system profile.
  • Change the folder owner.
  • Configure folder permissions.
  • Delete the folder.
  • Designate the folder to be shared.
  • Edit the folder name and description.
