You must have a ddw-catalogs (or other) dataset set up to hold your catalog files when you are done running the collector.

If you are using Catalog Toolkit , follow these instructions to prepare the datasets for collectors.

Creating user for running the collector

  1. The user created for running the collector must have metadata and execute permissions for the database. For details about setting the user permissions, see the Denodo documentation.

  2. To catalog the VQL definition of a view in Denodo, the user needs either the metadata_export role or write permissions for that view. You can grant the write permissions either at the database level or the view level, specifically for the views whose definitions you want to catalog. For details, see the Denodo documentation.
