Starting from 10.4, PostgreSQL can be used for domain and Model Repository Service (MRS) repository configurations.
When you import a resource with the same name as an existing physical data object, the Developer tool allows you to choose how to resolve the conflict. You can choose to create an object with a different name, reuse the existing object, or replace the resource for the existing object.
Previously, the Developer tool failed the table import and did not attempt to import any subsequent tables.
The Address Validator transformation uses version 5.15.0 of the Informatica Address Verification software engine.
Previously, the transformation used version 5.14.0 of the Informatica Address Verification software engine.
Solaris support is dropped in Data Engineering Quality 10.4.
Product Availability Matrix
Informatica's products rely upon and interact with a large range of products supplied by third-party vendors. Examples include database systems, ERP applications, web and application servers, browsers, and operating systems. Support for major releases of third-party products is determined and published in Informatica's Product Availability Matrix (PAM).
The PAM states which third-party product release is supported in combination with a specified Version of an Informatica product.
You can directly upgrade to 10.4.0 from Informatica Data Quality 10.0, 10.1, 10.1.1, and 10.2.
Follow the instructions in the upgrade guide to upgrade the product. In addition to upgrade steps, the guide also includes pre- and post-requisite tasks.
You can upgrade the product services and clients on one or more machines. Run the server installer to upgrade on all nodes. After you upgrade the domain, you must log into the Administrator tool and upgrade the application services. You can then upgrade the Informatica clients on all machines.
If I am using 10.2 on Solaris, how can I upgrade it to 10.4?
As Solaris support is dropped for 10.4, you need to migrate your 10.2 installation to an Operating System that is supported for both 10.2 and 10.4. After 10.2 migration, you can normally upgrade it to 10.4.
Is Oracle 19c RAC supported for Informatica 10.4?
Yes, Oracle 19c RAC is now supported with Informatica 10.4.
Should Informatica related environment variables should be unset before upgrading?
Yes, it is recommended to unset all the environment variables related to Informatica before proceeding with upgrade.
What is the Java version that is being shipped with 10.4?
Azul OpenJDK 1.8.0_222
What is minimum disk space required for upgrading the Informatica Domain?
Ensure that a minimum disk space of 20 to 25 GB is free to upgrade the Informatica Domain. Please note that, when you upgrade, the installer requires an additional disk space used by the existing infa_shared directory.
The installer writes temporary files to the hard disk. Verify that you have enough available disk space on the machine to support the installation. When the installation completes, the installer deletes the temporary files and releases the disk space.
Consider the following while upgrading the domain with changes to Node Configuration:
When you upgrade the domain, you can choose to change the node configuration to allow changes to the node hostname, port numbers, or domain configuration repository database.
If you migrated an Informatica services installation to a different machine, choose to change the node configuration to upgrade the domain and configure the node on the new machine.
If you migrated the domain configuration repository to a different database, choose to change the node configuration to upgrade the domain and configure the new database. If the domain configuration repository database type or version is no longer supported, you must migrate the repository to a different database. Migrate the repository in the previous Informatica instance before you upgrade the domain.
Complete the pre-upgrade tasks before you run the installer.
