Folders provide a way to organize and store metadata in the repository, including mappings, schemas, and sessions. Folders help you logically organize the repository. A folder consist of several objects that form power center code. Most of the objects created during the life cycle of the development are stored within the respective folders.
Use the Repository Manager to create, edit, and delete folders. You can control access to a folder by configuring folder permissions. You can also configure a folder to share stored metadata with other users. It is typically to have a folder for each project being developed in the repository and also each folder has a set of properties that you can configure to define how users access the folder.
