Connections Overview

Connections Overview

Create connections to databases to perform data subset, and masking operations, and to run profiles for discovery operations.
You can create connections in TDM. You can also import connections that you created in Informatica Administrator. When you create a connection in Test Data Manager, TDM stores the connection information in the Model repository.
Connection requirements depend on the operations that you need to perform. To perform a data discovery operation, TDM requires a connection to a database source. To perform data subset and data masking, TDM requires connections to source and target databases.
TDM supports some databases for certain TDM operations only. When you create a connection, relevant properties appear in the connection configuration wizard.
TDM supports SSL authentication for source and target connections.
To restrict access to connections, you can assign permissions to connections that you create in Test Data Manager.
Create and manage connections from the

view in Test Data Manager.
