Repository Connections

Repository Connections

TDM requires connections to repositories.
TDM accesses the following repositories:
TDM repository
The
Integration Service
stores TDM components in the TDM repository.
A data masking, data generation, or data subset workflow requires a connection to the TDM repository.
Model repository
When you run profiles to discover data, the TDM Server sends a request to the Data Integration Service to extract data for the source tables. The Data Integration Service sends a request to its associated Model Repository Service to load the metadata for the tables to the Model repository. When you perform data masking and data movement operations on Hadoop, you can choose to store the mappings in the Model repository for future use.
Profiling warehouse
The Data Integration Service loads the profile results to the profiling warehouse. When you create a Data Integration Service in the Administrator tool, you configure a profiling warehouse.
PowerCenter repository
When you import metadata into Test Data Manager from a PowerCenter source, the TDM Server sends a request to the PowerCenter Repository Service to copy source metadata from the PowerCenter repository into the TDM repository.
Test data warehouse repository
When you run a TDM operation to create a data set in the test data warehouse, the Test Data Manager Service stores the project metadata and source table metadata in the test data warehouse repository.
Test data warehouse
A relational database that stores the source data that you include in data sets that you store in the test data warehouse.
