PowerCenter Permissions

PowerCenter Permissions

To generate workflows, users need folder and connection object permissions. Assign permissions in the PowerCenter Client.
Folders organize and store metadata in the PowerCenter repository. Folders have the following types of permissions:
  • Read. You can view the folder and objects in the folder.
  • Write. You can create or edit objects in the folder.
  • Execute. You can run or schedule workflows in the folder.
Connection objects are global objects that define connections in the PowerCenter repository. Connection objects have the following types of permissions:
  • Read. View the connection object in the Workflow Manager and Repository Manager. When you have read permission, you can perform tasks in which you view, copy, or edit repository objects associated with the connection object.
  • Write. Edit the connection object.
  • Execute. Run sessions that use the connection object.
