Email Sessions Overview

Email Sessions Overview

After you create mappings in the Designer, you can create a session and use the session to extract, transform, and load data. You can create sessions and workflows in the Workflow Manager.
You can run a session in the following modes:
Real-time mode
When you run a session in real-time mode, the PowerCenter Integration Service extracts emails from the mail folder according to the filter specified in the session attributes and the emails that arrive in real time. To run a session in the real-time mode, set the value of the Real-time Flush Latency session property greater than 0. The PowerCenter Integration Service reads the unread, read, recent, or all mails from the mail folder, and it listens for new mails as they arrive in real time.
The real-time mode also requires a PowerCenter Real Time Edition license.
Non-real time mode
When you do not run a session in real-time mode, the PowerCenter Integration Service extracts emails from the mail folder according to the filter specified in the session attributes.
Before the PowerCenter Integration Service extracts data from email sources, you must configure an application connection in the Workflow Manager.
