Workflow Connections

Workflow Connections

Workflows contain connections to the
Data Integration Service
, the TDM repository, and one or more connection objects.
An offline job requires three connections to the TDM repository. When you run a plan with multiple workflows, each workflow requires one connection. You can run a maximum of eight workflows at a time. When you run eight workflows, you need 11 connections. Additional workflows move into the queued state.
Each workflow can use different connections to relational sources and paths to flat files. Choose the connections in the plan.
When you create a plan, you can select the following connections:
  • Source. The connection that is used to connect to the source.
  • Target. The connection that is used to connect to the target.
  • Lookup connection. A connection to a database that contains lookup tables.
  • Dictionary connection. A connection to a database that contains a dictionary table for substitution and email masking.
