I should mention that we currently have 9.5 so I am looking at the capability offered within that version.
I want to understand this too. Thanks for bringing it up.
It's not necessary to run the rule in a mapping. Basic steps are:
1. Profile the data you want to run Rules against.
2. Create the rules either in Developer or via the Analyst and add the Rules to your Profile. Note: Although you can create Rules in Analyst, you have more options when creating Rules in Developer.
3. Create a new Scorecard and add the outputs from the rules to the Scorecard.
For more information on this feature please review the Data Explorer User Guide
The scorecard results are stored to the Profile Warehouse. The Database View Reference has details of the views available for reporting etc. The 9.6 guide is linked but the views should be more or less the same.
Scorecards can be run from the command line using the infacmd command. You can use any external scheduling tool to schedule these commands. Details of running scorecards from the command line can be found in the Command Reference Guide.
Finally, if you are using 9.5.0 I would strongly recommend upgrading to at least 9.5.1 HF4 (although 9.6.1 HF1 would be best as this is the latest release) before embarking on any major implementation.
Thank you Robert!
Question, can you point me to where the steps are to add the rule to the profile? I am only familiar with the data domain discovery portion where I was unable to add to the scorecard. I reviewed the documentation but did not see these steps specifically called out.
Appreciate your help!
In the Analyst tool, open the Profile, select the Edit option (pencil icon or Actions -> Edit) and one of the tabs when editing is Column Profiling Rules. From here you can either assign an existing rule to a Column or create a new Rule.
Thank you again!
