User and Role Administration Overview

User and Role Administration Overview

Test Data Manager users are stored in the Informatica domain. To perform tasks in the Test Data Manager, users need roles, privileges, and permissions. User roles, privileges, and permissions are assigned through the Administrator tool and the PowerCenter Client.
The Informatica administrator creates users and groups in the Administrator tool. Work with the Informatica administrator to edit any user or group in the Administrator tool. You cannot edit users or groups in the Test Data Manager.
Users need the following types of roles, privileges, and permissions:
Informatica privileges
Includes privileges to change passwords and to generate and start workflows. The Informatica administrator assigns privileges in the Administrator tool.
Test Data Manager Service roles and privileges
Includes roles and privileges to perform actions in the Test Data Manager. Assign Test Data Manager Service roles and privileges in the Administrator tool.
Test Data Warehouse Service roles and privileges
Includes roles and privileges to perform actions to create and modify data sets in the test data warehouse. Assign Test Data Warehouse Service roles and privileges in the Administrator tool.
PowerCenter permissions
To generate and start workflows, users need folder and connection object permissions. Use the PowerCenter Client to assign permissions to users.
The Informatica administrator and the TDM administrator perform the following tasks to manage TDM users:
  1. The Informatica administrator creates Test Data Manager users in the domain and assigns privileges to them.
  2. The TDM administrator assigns Test Data Manager and Test Data Warehouse roles and privileges.
  3. The Informatica administrator assigns folder and connection object permissions in the PowerCenter Client.
You can manage user roles, privileges, and permissions from the Administrator Tool. For more information, see the
