Attention MDM developers, did you know that Informatica Master Data Management MultiDomain Edition now supports record locking in addition to table locking? Now you can have a batch process and allow users to access data without locking the entire table.
As of release 9.x, MDM now supports record locking. Earlier versions of MDM MultiDomain allowed table locks, but newer versions (since 9.x) allow for record locking.
You can accomplish record locking by enabling “BATCH API Interoperability.”
BATCH API Interoperability specifies whether your Operational Reference Store (ORS) will allow row-level locking for concurrently-executing, asynchronous SIF and batch operations. If selected (e.g., checked), then row-level locking is allowed for asynchronous SIF and batch operations. If not selected, which is the default, row-level locking is unavailable.
You enable record locking by setting the Batch API Interoperability property of the ORS as shown in Figure 1 below.
If you are using the Service Integration Framework API (SIF) or Informatica Data Director (IDD) you should set batch interoperability to ON.
