Connection properties storage

Connection properties storage

You can configure where to store the connection properties for your organization and sub-organizations. To specify where to store the connection properties, configure the
Connection Credentials
on the Organization page.
You can store connection properties in either of the following locations:
Informatica Cloud
When you store connection properties with
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
, the connection properties are always available.
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
backs up connection properties regularly as part of standard backup procedures.
Local Secure Agent
You might store connection properties with a local Secure Agent if you need the connection properties to reside within your firewall. To store connection properties with a local Secure Agent, the organization must have the Externalize Connections license.
When you store properties with a local Secure Agent, the Secure Agent must be running so that tasks can run and users can work with connections. Back up connection properties regularly to prevent loss of data. A best practice is to back up connection properties after you change the location or the encryption key for connection properties.
Connection properties are stored in the following directory:
<Secure Agent installation directory>/apps/Data_Integration_Server/data
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
generates an encryption key to secure connection properties stored with a Secure Agent. You can use a randomly generated password or you can enter a custom password as the basis for the encryption key.
Use a custom password when you want to update the encryption key periodically. You can change the custom password when you want to update the encryption key.
You can change where you want to store connection properties. When you do this,
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
moves the connection properties to the appropriate location. For example, your license expires, so you configure the organization to store connections on the cloud.
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
moves the connection properties from the local Secure Agent to
Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services
.
