Create Directories for the Analyst Service

Create Directories for the Analyst Service

Before you create the Analyst Service, you must create directories for the Analyst tool to store temporary files.
Create the following directories on the node that runs the Analyst Service:
Flat file cache directory
Create a directory for the flat file cache where the Analyst tool stores uploaded flat files. The Data Integration Service must also be able to access this directory. If the Analyst Service and the Data Integration Service run on different nodes, configure the flat file directory to use a shared directory. If the Data Integration Service runs on primary and back-up nodes or on a grid, each Data Integration Service process must be able to access the files in the shared directory.
For example, you can create a directory named "flatfilecache" in the following mapped drive that all Analyst Service and Data Integration Service processes can access:
F:\shared\<Informatica installation directory>\server
When you import a reference table or flat file source, the Analyst tool uses the files from this directory to create a reference table or flat file data object.
Temporary export file directory
Create a directory to store the temporary business glossary files that the business glossary export process creates. Create the directory on the node that runs the Analyst Service.
For example, you can create a directory named "exportfiledirectory" in the following location:
<Informatica installation directory>/server
Asset attachments directory
Create a directory to store the files that content managers add as attachments to Glossary assets. Create the directory on the node that runs the Analyst Service.
For example, you can create a directory named "attachmentdirectory" in the following location:
<Informatica installation directory>/server
