Creating a Web Services Hub

Creating a Web Services Hub

Create a Web Services Hub to run web service workflows so that external clients can access PowerCenter functionality as web services.
You must associate a PowerCenter repository with the Web Services Hub before you run it. The PowerCenter repository that you assign to the Web Services Hub is called the associated repository. The Web Services Hub runs web service workflows that are in the associated repository.
By default, the Web Services Hub has the same code page as the node on which it runs. When you associate a PowerCenter repository with the Web Services Hub, the code page of the Web Services Hub must be a subset of the code page of the associated repository.
If the domain contains multiple nodes and you create a secure Web Services Hub, you must generate the SSL certificate for the Web Services Hub on a gateway node and import the certificate into the certificate file of the same gateway node.
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Manage
    tab >
    Services and Nodes
    view.
  2. On the Domain Navigator Actions menu, click New > Web Services Hub.
    The New Web Services Hub Service window appears.
  3. Configure the properties of the Web Services Hub.
    The following table describes the properties for a Web Services Hub:
    Property
    Description
    Name
    Name of the Web Services Hub. The characters must be compatible with the code page of the associated repository. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. It cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain spaces or the following special characters:
    ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
    Description
    Description of the Web Services Hub. The description cannot exceed 765 characters.
    Location
    Domain folder in which the Web Services Hub is created. Click Browse to select the folder in the domain where you want to create the Web Services Hub.
    License
    License to assign to the Web Services Hub. If you do not select a license now, you can assign a license to the service later. Required before you can enable the Web Services Hub.
    Node
    Node on which the Web Services Hub runs. A Web Services Hub runs on a single node. A node can run more than one Web Services Hub.
    Associated Repository Service
    PowerCenter Repository Service to which the Web Services Hub connects. The repository must be enabled before you can associate it with a Web Services Hub.
    Repository User Name
    User name to access the repository.
    Repository Password
    Password for the user.
    Security Domain
    Security domain for the user. Appears when the Informatica domain contains an LDAP security domain.
    URLScheme
    Indicates the security protocol that you configure for the Web Services Hub:
    • HTTP. Run the Web Services Hub on HTTP only.
    • HTTPS. Run the Web Services Hub on HTTPS only.
    • HTTP and HTTPS. Run the Web Services Hub in HTTP and HTTPS modes.
    HubHostName
    Name of the machine hosting the Web Services Hub.
    HubPortNumber (http)
    Optional. Port number for the Web Services Hub on HTTP. Default is 7333.
    HubPortNumber (https)
    Port number for the Web Services Hub on HTTPS. Appears when the URL scheme selected includes HTTPS. Required if you choose to run the Web Services Hub on HTTPS. Default is 7343.
    KeystoreFile
    Path and file name of the keystore file that contains the keys and certificates required if you use the SSL security protocol with the Web Services Hub. Required if you run the Web Services Hub on HTTPS.
    Keystore Password
    Password for the keystore file. The value of this property must match the password you set for the keystore file. If this property is empty, the Web Services Hub assumes that the password for the keystore file is the default password
    changeit
    .
    InternalHostName
    Host name on which the Web Services Hub listens for connections from the PowerCenter Integration Service. If not specified, the default is the Web Services Hub host name.
    If the host machine has more than one network card that results in multiple IP addresses for the host machine, set the value of InternalHostName to the internal IP address.
    InternalPortNumber
    Port number on which the Web Services Hub listens for connections from the PowerCenter Integration Service. Default is 15555.
  4. Click Create.
After you create the Web Services Hub, the Administrator tool displays the URL for the Web Services Hub Console. If you run the Web Services Hub on HTTP and HTTPS, the Administrator tool displays the URL for both.
If you configure a logical URL for an external load balancer to route requests to the Web Services Hub, the Administrator tool also displays the URL.
Click the service URL to start the Web Services Hub Console from the Administrator tool. If the Web Services Hub is not enabled, you cannot connect to the Web Services Hub Console.
