Publishing a Visio template

Publishing a Visio template

Publish a Visio template when you are ready to use the Visio template in
Data Integration
.
When you publish a Visio template, the
Cloud Integration Template Designer
creates a Visio template XML file that you can upload to
Data Integration
.
Before you publish a Visio template, you can perform the following optional tasks:
  • Validate the template. You can use the Validate Mapping Template icon on the Informatica toolbar to perform basic validation.
  • Create an image file. You can save the template as .JPG or .PNG to create an image file. You can use the image file to represent the template data flow when you upload the Visio template to your organization.
To publish a Visio template:
  1. On the Informatica toolbar, click the
    Publish
    icon.
  2. Navigate to the directory you want to use, and click
    Save
    .
    The
    Cloud Integration Template Designer
    generates a Visio template XML file in the directory that you select. The Visio template XML file uses the following naming convention:
    <Visio template name>.XML
    When you publish a Visio template, the
    Cloud Integration Template Designer
    also creates a parameter file name <Visio template name>_param.XML. This file contains information related to user-defined parameters. Unless you want to use this file as a basis for a user-defined parameter file, you do not need to use this file.
