    Hi Praful,

    You are free to use any middleware as long as it gives data in required format to MDM 😊

    It depends what data you want to pull from source system using middleware. for Main table data (records) I am sure Middleware like informatica can place data in MDM inbound folder directly, then you don't need to Make it as FTP enabled. If NOT then you need tomake FTP enabled.

    About reference data you need to decide how will you pull that from source system. Since it is not very frequent activity and if you have less number look-ups then even we can prepare data in spreadsheet and pull in MDM. Also check with Informatica if they can pull reference data from source system and place in MDM inbound folder of respective ports. If possible then you don't need to make it FTP enabled.

    Having Informatica as middleware will also be helpful to carry your cleasing actvity. Update us on your views.

      >>access denied to informatica user

      Make sure that the user is created in MDM Console and has "Admin" authorization.If you have created a windows/Unix user, it won't work.

      >>can we place file in MDM inbound folder through informatica ETL without FTP

      Not sure what exactly you mean by this,even Informatica is doing FTP, it is getting files from a source system and dropping in "Ready" folder of MDM.
