What is secure agent in Informatica IDMC?

 


A Secure Agent is a lightweight program that runs tasks and collects metadata for Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services (IDMC). It enables secure communication between IDMC and the agents, and it also provides a number of other features, such as:





  • Task execution: The Secure Agent runs tasks that are submitted to IDMC. This includes tasks such as data integration jobs, data quality jobs, and data profiling jobs.
  • Metadata collection: The Secure Agent collects metadata about the tasks that it runs. This metadata can be used to track the progress of tasks, troubleshoot problems, and audit the use of IDMC.
  • Secure communication: The Secure Agent uses secure communication to connect to IDMC. This ensures that the data that is exchanged between the Secure Agent and IDMC is protected.
  • Scalability: The Secure Agent can be scaled to meet the needs of your organization. You can install multiple Secure Agents on different machines, and you can also add more Secure Agents as your needs grow.

To install a Secure Agent, you need to download the Secure Agent installer from the IDMC Administrator console. Once you have installed the Secure Agent, you need to register it with IDMC. You can do this by providing the Secure Agent with a token that is generated by IDMC.

Once the Secure Agent is registered with IDMC, it is ready to start running tasks. You can submit tasks to the Secure Agent from the IDMC Administrator console, or you can submit tasks from other applications that are integrated with IDMC.

The Secure Agent is an important part of IDMC. It provides a number of features that make it easy to run tasks, collect metadata, and secure communication between IDMC and the agents.

Here are some of the benefits of using a Secure Agent:





  • Improved security: The Secure Agent uses secure communication to connect to IDMC. This ensures that the data that is exchanged between the Secure Agent and IDMC is protected.
  • Increased scalability: The Secure Agent can be scaled to meet the needs of your organization. You can install multiple Secure Agents on different machines, and you can also add more Secure Agents as your needs grow.
  • Reduced administrative overhead: The Secure Agent is a lightweight program that is easy to install and manage. This reduces the administrative overhead associated with running IDMC.

If you are using IDMC, I recommend that you use a Secure Agent. It will help to improve the security, scalability, and manageability of your IDMC environment.
