Publishing a Visio template

Publish a Visio template when you are ready to use the Visio template in Data Integration.
When you publish a Visio template, the Cloud Integration Template Designer creates a Visio template XML file that you can upload to Data Integration.
Before you publish a Visio template, you can perform the following optional tasks:
To publish a Visio template:
    1. On the Informatica toolbar, click the Publish icon.
    2. Navigate to the directory you want to use, and click Save.
    The Cloud Integration Template Designer generates a Visio template XML file in the directory that you select. The Visio template XML file uses the following naming convention:
    <Visio template name>.XML
    When you publish a Visio template, the Cloud Integration Template Designer also creates a parameter file name <Visio template name>_param.XML. This file contains information related to user-defined parameters. Unless you want to use this file as a basis for a user-defined parameter file, you do not need to use this file.
