F About the Versioned Informatica Repository

This section explains the versioned Informatica Repository that is included in Oracle BI Applications, and contains the following topics:

F.1 Summary of Versioning in the Informatica Repository

Version of Oracle BI Applications installs the following two Informatica Repository files:

To use versioned files, the Team based Development option is required, which is included in the OEM license provided to you by Oracle. Also, if you extend or modify the standard mappings, you need to check out and check changes to the Informatica Repository. DAC will now only pick up and execute valid and checked-in objects from the Informatica Repository.

Oracle BI Applications now uses a standard way of labeling objects. For example, the standard Informatica objects have the label 'Oracle Business Intelligence Applications Release 7.9.x'. This label is useful when tracing back and comparing changes made from release to release. Note that Informatica does not allow a versioned repository file to be restored as a non-versioned repository somewhere else. Therefore, this change is uni-directional.

F.2 Customization of Repository Objects Using Check Out and Check In

When working with an Informatica Repository that is versioned, you must check out a repository object to modify and then check in the change. To extend or modify the standard mappings, you must check out a repository object that is to be modified, make the desired changes, and then check in the changes. This process is described below, and is illustrated in the screenshot below where the red arrow represents the action flow.

The workflow for checking out and checking in changes in the Informatica Repository is described below:
