Ok,, it is a typical scenario. Anyone who needs this information is new to either tool or team and in both the case it is not possible to ask team members to help you as many of time they are busy because of some reasons. Sharing this to all of you. so it can be helpful for everyone who is first time in this situation. Please leave a comment if it has helped you.
Ask your ADMIN to give you below information.
Oracle user name and password ? For master and work repository
ODI user name and password ? To login to ODI application
Once you have this information. Follow below steps given in picture to configure ODI repository first time.
To start with you should be aware of ODI working concepts
ODIs operational architecture revolves around Master Repository and Work repository
Broadly ODI maintains two repository master and work repository. Each work repository is associated with master repository and one master repository can have multiple work repositories. Oracle claims that this working structure helps in ODI version management.
Master repository keeps metadata about access privileges, server definition, schemas and old version of objects etc.
Work repository keeps metadata information about filed, columns, structure, and constraints. Apart from this project level information like folder, business rules, package, procedure, module and variable. Work repository is accessible through designer and operator.
ODI client Tools
Designer: Designer is a client tool to do development and we can relate it with informatica designer.
Operator: operator is a session monitoring tool and we can relate it with informatica workflow monitor.
Topology manager: Helpful to define the project infrastructure like connections, source, targets, data base servers
Security manager: interface to create and manage user privileges.
Runtime/ Schedule agent: ODI built-in scheduler suite.
Metadata navigator: it is bit self-explanatory :).
I hope it is helpful !!!!!!!!!!!!
