Identity Population Prerequisites

Identity Population Prerequisites

Install the identity population files to a location that the Informatica services can access.
In a Data Quality installation, the Data Integration Service reads the population files. Install the files on the Data Integration Service host machine or to a shared directory on a machine that the Data Integration Service can access.
In a PowerCenter installation, the PowerCenter Integration Service reads the population files.
Install the files on the PowerCenter Integration Service host machine or to a shared directory on a machine that the Integration Service can access.
Informatica Data Quality stores the path to the population file directory in the
Reference Data Location
property on the Content Management Service. Use the Administrator tool to verify or edit the path.
Install the population files to the following directory on the Data Integration Service machine:
[Informatica_installation_directory]/services/DQContent/INFA_Content/identity/default
Before you install the population files, verify that the
/default/
directory is present. Before you create a mapping that reads the population files, verify that the
Reference Data Location
property on the Content Management Service specifies the parent directory for the
/default/
directory.
PowerCenter stores the path to the population file directory in the
IdentityReferenceDataLocation
property in the
IDQTx.cfg
configuration file. Open the file and verify or edit the path.
Consider the following rules and guidelines before you install the identity population files to a PowerCenter machine:
  • The Content installer writes the population files to the following directory on the PowerCenter Integration Service machine:
    [Informatica_installation_directory]/services/DQContent/INFA_Content/identity/default
    Before you run the Content installer, verify that the
    /default/
    directory is present. Before you run a session that reads the population files, verify that the
    IdentityReferenceDataLocation
    property in the
    IDQTx.cfg
    file specifies the parent directory for the
    /default/
    directory.
    The PowerCenter installer writes the
    IDQTx.cfg
    file to the following path:
    [Informatica_Installation_directory]/server/bin
  • Earlier versions of PowerCenter read the path to the population files from the
    SSAPR
    environment variable. The PowerCenter Integration Service can read the location of the population files from the
    IDQTx.cfg
    file or from the
    SSAPR
    environment variable. By default, the PowerCenter Integration Service reads the location from the
    IDQTx.cfg
    file. If the
    IDQTx.cfg
    file does not specify the location, or if the file is not present, the PowerCenter Integration Service reads the location from the
    SSAPR
    environment variable.
  • The
    IDQTx.cfg
    file and the
    SSAPR
    environment variable specify the path to the parent directory of the
    /default/
    directory. The path does not include the
    /default/
    directory name. The path cannot contain character spaces.
  • You can use the current version of the population files with the current versions of Informatica Data Quality and PowerCenter. To use the current population files with an earlier version of PowerCenter, install the current version of the Data Quality Integration plug-in to PowerCenter.
    When you install the current plug-in on a PowerCenter machine, you cannot import objects from an older Model repository to the PowerCenter repository. You can continue to use any data quality object that you imported to the PowerCenter repository before you installed the current plug-in.
