Tools Privilege Group

Tools Privilege Group

The privileges in the PowerCenter Repository Service Tools privilege group determine the PowerCenter Client tools and command line programs that users can access.
The following table lists the actions that users can perform for the privileges in the Tools group:
Privilege
Permission
Description
Access Designer
-
User is able to connect to the PowerCenter repository using the Designer.
Access Repository Manager
-
User is able to perform the following actions:
  • Connect to the PowerCenter repository using the Repository Manager.
  • Run pmrep commands.
Access Workflow Manager
-
User is able to perform the following actions:
  • Connect to the PowerCenter repository using the Workflow Manager.
  • Remove a PowerCenter Integration Service from the Workflow Manager.
Access Workflow Monitor
-
User is able to perform the following actions:
  • Connect to the PowerCenter repository using the Workflow Monitor.
  • Connect to the PowerCenter Integration Service in the Workflow Monitor.
When the PowerCenter Integration Service runs in safe mode, users must have the Administrator role for the associated PowerCenter Repository Service.
The appropriate privilege in the Tools privilege group is required for all users completing tasks in PowerCenter Client tools and command line programs. For example, to create folders in the Repository Manager, a user must have the Create Folders and Access Repository Manager privileges.
If users have a privilege in the Tools privilege group and permission on a PowerCenter repository object but not the privilege to modify the object type, they can still perform some actions on the object. For example, a user has the Access Repository Manager privilege and read permission on some folders. The user does not have any of the privileges in the Folders privilege group. The user can view objects in the folders and compare the folders.
