The WA Agent must use database user (not Informatica) to connect to database.


The following must be done for Informatica plugin to properly connect and retrieve the workflows. 

1.  Install the correct JDBC driver for the database.  The JDBC jar will be placed in <agent_install_directory>/jars/ext .

Note: Copy only one JDBC jar in the jars/ext directory.  Remove any older versions.  Move them to another location.  Do not rename.

2.  The DB username must be configured in the <repo_file>.properties file in <agent_install_directory>/config/informatica/default directory.

3. Change informatica.db.user to DB user that has access to the database.  User must have access to all the tables/views in the database.

4. Change informatica.db.password accordingly.  User password utility in <agent_install_directory> to get the encrypted password. See here for more details.

5. Restart agent for changes to take affect.
