A user with an account in the Informatica domain can log in to the following application clients:
  • Informatica Administrator
  • PowerCenter Client
  • Informatica Developer
  • Informatica Analyst

The Users section of the Navigator organizes users into security domain folders. A security domain is a collection of user accounts and groups in an Informatica domain. Native authentication uses the Native security domain which contains the users and groups created and managed in the Administrator tool. LDAP authentication uses LDAP security domains which contain users and groups imported from the LDAP directory service.
When you select a security domain folder in the Users section of the Navigator, the contents panel displays all users belonging to the security domain.
When you select a user in the Navigator, the contents panel displays the following tabs:

  • Permissions. Displays the level of access that the user has to perform tasks on domain objects, including nodes, grids and application services . Also displays the level of access that the user has to perform tasks on connection objects and operating system profiles.
