Identity Properties

Identity Properties

The identity properties specify the location of the identity population files and the default locations of the temporary files that identity match analysis can generate. The locations on each property are local to the Data Integration Service that runs the identity match mapping. The Data Integration Service must have write access to each location.
The following table describes the identity properties:
Property
Description
Reference Data Location
Path to the directory that contains the identity population files.
The path identifies a parent directory. Install the population files to a directory with the name
default
below the directory that the property specifies.
Cache Directory
Path to the directory that contains the temporary data files that the Data Integration Service generates during identity analysis. The Data Integration Service creates the directory at run time if the Match transformation in the mapping does not specify the directory.
The property sets the following default path:
./identityCache
You can specify a relative path, or you can specify a fully qualified path to a directory that the Data Integration Service can write to. The relative path is relative to the
tomcat/bin
directory on the Data Integration Service machine.
Index Directory
Path to the directory that contains the temporary index files that the Data Integration Service generates during identity analysis. Identity match analysis uses the index to sort records into groups before match analysis. The Data Integration Service creates the directory at run time if the Match transformation in the mapping does not specify the directory.
The property sets the following default location:
./identityIndex
You can specify a relative path, or you can specify a fully qualified path to a directory that the Data Integration Service can write to. The relative path is relative to the
tomcat/bin
directory on the Data Integration Service machine.
