Informatica Privileges

Informatica Privileges

The Informatica administrator assigns PowerCenter Repository Service privileges to users that need to perform subset, masking, and generation operations. All users need the domain privilege to change passwords. Users do not need domain privileges to perform profiling operations.
If the server is on a non EN locale, you require permission on the PowerCenter Repository Service in addition to service privileges. You require this permission to upload mappings in a workflow. Assign permission from the
tab on the Administrator tool.
