Regenerate the Plug-ins for Universal Resources

Regenerate the Plug-ins for Universal Resources

If you use universal resources, you must regenerate the plug-in for each universal resource. After you regenerate the plug-ins, copy them to the Metadata Manager Service plug-ins directory, and then recycle the Metadata Manager Service.
Perform the following tasks for each universal resource:
  1. Copy the plug-in definition file from the previous Metadata Manager version and save it with a different file name.
  2. Edit the new plug-in definition file, change the values of the name element, the owner element, or both, and then save the file.
    The following code shows an example of a plug-in definition file for an XConnect that you use to extract metadata from QlikView Files:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?> <xconnect xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation='xconndef.xsd' xmlns="http://www.informatica.com/XCONDEF"> <name>QlikView1011</name> <owner>HypoStores</owner> <domain>Business Intelligence</domain> <sourcename>QlikView Files</sourcename> </xconnect>
  3. Run the mmXConPluginUtil generatePlugin command with the definition file (-x) option to regenerate the plug-in.
    For example:
    mmXConPluginUtil generatePlugin -x C:\MMPlugInDefs\HypoStores_QlikView1011.xml
    mmXConPluginUtil generates the plug-in as an XConnect archive (XAR) file. It generates the plug-in in the following directory, where the owner and name are defined in the plug-in definition file:
    <Informatica services installation directory>\services\MetadataManagerService\utilities\mmxconpluginutil\<owner>.<name>
    mmXConPluginUtil names the plug-in
    mm-<owner>.<name>-xconnect.xar
    .
  4. Copy the plug-in to the Metadata Manager Service plug-ins directory:
    <Informatica services installation directory>\services\MetadataManagerService\mm-plugins\xconnect\<Metadata Manager Service name>
After you copy all plug-ins to the Metadata Manager Service plug-ins directory, recycle the Metadata Manager Service in the Administrator tool. Metadata Manager imports the models when the service is enabled.
