How to go about creating Informatica jobs?
There are no specific job types so far, CMD job type should be used. A future release will provide a specific job type. In the meantime Informatica implementation is done via a wrapper command informatica.bat (in the "wrapper" directory of the agent) and it accepts Informatica commands.
You could use JIL command:pmcmd however if Informatica does provide a CLI and a web services interface it does not provides access to the software full feature set; it is therefore better to using the wrapper.
You can code the --command parameter of the wrapper to execute any Infomatica command.
For instance, to start workflow with Informatica, you would code:
pmcmd startworkflow -sv theService -d theDomain -u Administrator -p admpsw -f foldername wf_name
Thus if you need to define an autosys job that may automaticaly start the workflow at 8am every workday the JIL would look like:
insert_job: test_job job_type: CMD
command: "/opt/CA/WorkloadAutomationAE/SystemAgent/wrappers/informatica" --command=startworkflow -sv theService -d theDomain -u Administrator -p admpsw -f foldername wf_name"
