Type of connection. For IDMS, the type must be
Name of the runtime environment that contains the Secure Agent that you want to use to run mapping tasks.
Host name or IP address of the system where the PowerExchange Listener that processes requests for IDMS runs. Also include the Listener port number. Enter the value in the following format, where
host_namecan be a host name or IP address:
A user name that can be used to access the PowerExchange Listener when PowerExchange Listener security is enabled. For more information, see the SECURITY statement in the

The schema name of the IDMS source.

Controls whether to use offload processing. Offload processes transfers bulk data processing from the source system to the target system. Options are:
Default is No.
The number of threads that Cloud Data Integration uses to process bulk data.
For optimal performance, this value should not exceed the number of installed or available processors on the machine where the secure agent runs.
Valid values are 1 through 64.
Default is 0, which disables multithreading.
Not all connection types support offload threads. If the
Offload Threadsconnection property for one of these connections is set to a nonzero value, processing continues without threads.
For IDMS data sources and sequential files, the size of the storage array, in number of records, that is used for partitioned or multithreaded sessions.
For partitioned sessions, this array size is shared across the partitions. For multithreaded sessions, each thread has this array size.
Valid values are from 1 through 5000. Default is 25.
To tune partitioned sessions, particularly when the

Number of seconds that the PowerExchange Bulk Reader tries to reconnect to the PowerExchange Listener after the initial connection attempt fails. If a connection cannot be established within the retry period, the mapping task fails. The default is 0, which disables connection retries.
Custom properties that you can specify to override PowerExchange default settings. You can enter multiple properties by using a semicolon (;) as the separator. Set custom properties only at the direction of Informatica Global Customer Support.
These properties are equivalent to the
