Step 7. Export or Publish the Adapter
Informatica Connector Toolkit to export or publish the adapter. You can export the adapter files to a location or publish the adapter on local Informatica services and client directory.
- In the
Connector Navigator view, right-click the project and select
Export/Publish Informatica Connector dialog box appears.
Browse and specify a location to export the adapter.
Export Location defaults to the adapter project workspace.
- To export the connector for Informatica Cloud, select
Informatica Cloud and specify the following details:
- If you use record pattern type to create the connector, specify a plugin version.
- If you use procedure pattern type to create the connector, select
Specify Plugin ID and specify a plugin ID and a plugin version.
- To export the connector for PowerCenter, select
PowerCenter and specify the plugin ID.
- If you want to use the
Informatica Connector Toolkit to install the adapter on a local Informatica services and client machine, select
Publish connector on local Informatica services and client and perform the following steps:
- Specify the location of the local Informatica server directory.
- Specify the location of the client installation directory.
To reinstall the adapter or install a newer version of the adapter, select
Next to view the contents of the client and server bundles.
If you export the adapter, the
Informatica Connector Toolkit bundles the client and service artifacts and generates batch files that you can use to install the adapter. If you encounter any error or fail to export the adapter, refer to the <adapter_name>_codebuilder.log file for more information. The <adapter_name>_codebuilder.log file is available in the
<Eclipse workspace>/<adapter project> folder.
If you publish the adapter, the
Informatica Connector Toolkit restarts the Informatica domain and registers the adapter with the Informatica services. The Data Integration Service can connect to the data source and you can create connections to the data source in the Developer tool and Administrator tool. If you fail to publish the adapter, install the adapter manually.
If the Informatica domain is not available after you publish the adapter, ensure that no Informatica services are running in the domain and then publish the adapter.
By default, you can use the
Informatica Connector Toolkit
to build connector for Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services. If you want to publish a connector developed using Informatica Connector Toolkit versions earlier than 10.2 HotFix 1, set
as the value of the
system environment variable. For example,
The default value of the
CTK_ADAPTER system environment variable is set to
