Versioning Versioning badhris (Programmer) (OP) 1 Nov 07 01:06 Can anyone help me what is versioning in informatica?(Versioning in mapping,etc.,)And how to do it?And how to enable versioning in repository ? RE: Versioning ArtieChoke (Programmer) 1 Nov 07 16:25 Versioning allows you to save previous versions of a map, session, workflow, etc. Once you set it up, it's all or nothing. You update the repository in the admin console for version 8.x. I don't remember where it is on version 7.x any more.There's nothing you have to do after it's set up except to check out/check in the objects you are working on. Note: version 7.x does an automatic check out which is really annoying if you are just viewing the object.

Versioning is pretty cool when you need to migrate a new version from testing to - say - production. In version 7 it was not perfect,but quite usefull. Keep in mind that using versioning will have a profound effect on the repository. You need to take into account that metadata reporting by any tool addresses the proper active records.In any case you need to make up your mind BEFORE starting, you cannot switch to versioning halfway..

And that was over a few months 'cause it was so painful - doh!We got versioning as part of our package. I don't know if there's other packages that require you to pay. Deployment is iffy/buggy in version 7.x. Sometimes it works perfectly and other times it destroys what you migrated - argh! I wish they would get their act together on these things...

The changes are significant and worth the effort.I believe Data analyzer is part of the Powercenter product.High availability requires additional licensing and so does many of the connectors, metadata tools.
