Create Connections to the Databases

Create Connections to the Databases

The Data Integration Service uses connections to access the databases. You specify the connection details when you create the service.
When you create the database connection in the Administrator tool, specify the database connection properties and test the connection.
The following table describes the database connections that you must create before you create the Data Integration Service:
Database Connection
Description
Data object cache database
To access the data object cache, create the data object cache connection for the Data Integration Service.
Workflow database
To store run-time metadata for workflows, create the workflow database connection for the Data Integration Service.
Profiling warehouse database
To create and run profiles and scorecards, create the profiling warehouse database connection for the Data Integration Service. Use this instance of the Data Integration Service when you configure the run-time properties of the Analyst Service.
You can create the following types of profiles when you use a JDBC connection for the profiling warehouse:
  • Column profile
  • Rule profile
  • Data domain discovery profile
  • Enterprise discovery profile without enabling the foreign key discovery
You can also create scorecards when you use a JDBC connection for the profiling warehouse.
To use the Microsoft SQL Server database as the profiling warehouse, choose ODBC as the provider type, and clear the
use DSN
option in the
Microsoft SQL Server connection properties
dialog box when you configure the Microsoft SQL Server connection.
