Operating System Profiles

Operating System Profiles

An operating system profile is a security mechanism that the Data Integration Service and the PowerCenter Integration Service use to run mappings, workflows, and profiling jobs.
The Operating System Profiles section of the Navigator lists the operating system profiles configured in the domain.
When you select an operating system profile in the Navigator, the contents panel displays the following tabs:
  • Properties. Displays general properties of the operating system profile configured for the Data Integration Service, for the PowerCenter Integration Service, or for both application services.
  • Permissions. Displays the permissions assigned to users and groups that use the operating system profile. Also indicates whether the operating system profile is the default profile assigned to a user or group.
