FAQ: What is the PowerCenter Repository (pmrep) command to list relational connections?

The following two commands will fulfill this requirement:

pmrep executable command will be available in $INFA_HOME/server/bin directory.

1. pmrep ListConnections

Lists all connection objects in the repository and their respective connection types. A connection can be one of the following types:

  • Application
  • FTP
  • Loader
  • Queue
  • Relational

The ListConnections command uses the following syntax:

listconnections[-t (output includes connection subtype)]


-t is optional. Displays the connection subtype.

For example, for a Relational connection, connection subtypes include Oracle, Sybase, and Microsoft SQL Server. You can only view the subtype for connections that you have read permission on.

2. pmrep GetConnectionDetails

Lists the properties and attributes of a connection object as name-value pairs.

To use the GetConnectionDetails command, you need read permission on the connection object.

The GetConnectionDetails command uses the following syntax:

pmrep getconnectiondetails

-n <connection_name>

-t <connection_type>

The following table describes pmrep GetConnectionDetails options and arguments:

Option Argument Description
-n connection_name Required. Name of the connection to list details for.
-t connection_type Required. Type of connection
