The Analyst Service is an application service that runs the Analyst tool in the Informatica domain. The Analyst Service manages the connections between the service components and the users who log in to the Analyst tool.
The Analyst Service connects to a Data Integration Service that runs profiles, scorecards, and mapping specifications. The Analyst Service also connects to a Data Integration Service that runs workflows.
The Analyst Service connects to the Model Repository Service to identify a Model repository. The Analyst Service connects to a Metadata Manager Service that enables data lineage analysis on scorecards in the Analyst tool. The Analyst Service connects to a Search Service that enables and manages searches in the Analyst tool.
Additionally, the Analyst Service connects to the Analyst tool, a flat file cache directory to store uploaded flat files, and a business glossary export file directory.
You can use the Administrator tool to create and recycle an Analyst Service in the Informatica domain and to access the Analyst tool. When you recycle the Analyst Service, the Service Manager restarts the Analyst Service.
