Managing Business Components and Directories - Informatica

Use the Designer to perform the following tasks:

  • Create a directory.
  • Create a business component.
  • Edit a directory.
  • Delete a directory or business component.
  • Copy a directory or business component.

To move a business component or directory, drag a single business component or an entire directory within the same business component tree. If you drag a single business component or an directory to or from a different repository folder or repository, the Designer prompts you to create a copy of the original object in the destination location.

Creating and Editing a Directory

Use directories to organize repository objects within the business component tree. You can enter a name for each directory in the tree and provide comments to identify it. When you create a directory, the directory location appears as one of its properties. You can create a directory in a different location by selecting a different directory node when you create the directory.

To create a business components directory:

  1. In the Designer, connect to a repository and open a folder.
  2. Click Repository > Business Components > New Directory.
  3. Note:To create a business components directory under another directory, select the directory in the Navigator and click Repository > Business Components > New Directory.

  4. Enter a name and description for the business components directory.

Editing a Directory

To edit a business components directory:

  1. In the Designer, connect to a repository and open a folder.
  2. Select the business components directory you want to edit.
  3. Click Repository > Business Components > Edit Properties.

Creating a Business Component

Create business components to view the sources and mapplets using directories. Edit the object from its original location or from the business components directory. You can reference a source or mapplet multiple times in the business component tree.

You can also create business components with objects from other repository folders or repositories by using shortcuts or by copying business components.

To create a business component:

  1. In the Designer, connect to a repository.
  2. Open the repository folder in which you want to create a business component.
  3. From the Navigator in this repository folder, select the source or mapplet to which you want to create a reference.
  4. Drag the source or mapplet into the directory in the business component tree.

Creating Business Components from a Copy

To create a copy of a business component that is not shared, drag the object from a repository folder into a directory in the business component tree. The Designer prompts you to create a copy of the object in the business component tree. Copies of objects from other repository folders do not inherit changes you make to the original object.

Creating Business Components using Shortcuts

To create a business component of an object in a shared folder within a repository, drag the object into a directory in the business component tree. The Designer prompts you to create a local shortcut. A local shortcut references a source or mapplet in a shared folder within a repository.

To create a business component of an object in a shared folder of a global repository, connect to the global repository and drag the object into a directory in the business component tree. The Designer prompts you to create a global shortcut. A global shortcut is a shortcut in a local repository that references an object in a shared folder within the global repository.

Deleting a Directory or Business Component

You can delete a directory or business component from the business component tree. Deleting a directory deletes all subdirectories and business components in the directory. Deleting a directory or business component does not delete the original repository objects.

To delete a business components directory:

  1. In the Designer, connect to a repository and open a folder.
  2. Select a business components directory and click Edit > Delete.

Tip:You can delete a directory by selecting it in the Navigator and pressing the Delete key.

Deleting a Business Component

To delete a business component:

  1. In the Designer, connect to a repository and open a folder.
  2. Select a business component and click Edit > Delete.

Tip:You can delete a business component by selecting it in the Navigator and pressing the Delete key.

Copying a Directory or Business Component

You can copy a business components directory to a different location in the same tree. You can also copy a business components directory to a different repository folder or repository. Copies of objects from other repository folders do not inherit changes you make to the original object.

To copy a directory or business component:

  1. In the Designer, connect to the source database and open the folder from which you want to copy the directory or business component.
  2. In the Navigator, select the object you want to copy.
  3. Click Edit > Copy, or press Ctrl+C.
  4. If you want to copy the object to a different repository, connect to the target repository.
  5. If you want to copy the object to a different folder, open the destination folder.
  6. In the Navigator, select the business components directory location where you want to paste the directory or business component.
  7. Click Edit > Paste, or press Ctrl+V.
