The Oracle Business Intelligence Data Warehouse Administration Console User's Guide revision 1 includes the following topics originally published in the Oracle Business Intelligence Applications Release Notes for 10.1.3.4 and new features in version 10.1.3.4.1:
Informatica Password Encryption. By default, passwords are unencrypted when DAC interacts with Informatica; however, you can force password encryption. See "Forcing Password Encryption When DAC Interacts With Informatica".
Creating Parallel Indexes. DAC can create parallel indexes by table. See "Physical Data Sources Tab: Parallel Indexes Subtab".
Worker Pool Size. This is a new system property that specifies the number of worker threads that perform various operations. See "Worker Pool Size".
Multi-Line Parameters. You can configure the infa_command.xml file to enable the parameter file to contain multi-line parameters. See "Handling Parameter Files with Multi-Line Parameters".
Restoring DAC Repository on Unicode Oracle Database. On a non-Unicode Oracle database the Informatica workflow names may not fit into the corresponding fields. See "Restoring the DAC Repository on Unicode Oracle Databases".
Password Management. Users in all roles can change their passwords. See "About User Account Management".
Prune Days. Prune days can be set by source for multi-source ETL. See "Prune Days".
JDBC Override. JDBC connection "URL Override" handles specific database connections. See "Using JDBC Connection URL Override to Handle Database Connections".
Upgrading the Data Warehouse Schema on Teradata. When the data warehouse schema is on a Teradata database and you use the Data Warehouse Configuration Wizard to upgrade the data warehouse schema, DAC generates SQL scripts and log files. For a description of these files, see "Upgrading the Data Warehouse Schema on Teradata".
DAC Parameter Load Specification. DAC Parameters can be specified for full or incremental load ETLs. See "Using Parameters to Specify Full or Incremental Loads".
Mapping Multiple Workflows. Multiple database-specific Informatica workflows can be mapped to the same DAC task. See "Mapping Multiple Database-Specific Informatica Workflows to the Same DAC Task".
Connecting to DAC When Using Oracle RAC. Use a specific URL to connect to the DAC repository when using Oracle RAC. See "Connecting to the DAC Repository When Using Oracle RAC".
