CreateService

CreateService

Creates a Metadata Access Service. The Metadata Access Service is an application service that allows the Developer tool to access Hadoop connection information to import and preview metadata.
The infacmd mas CreateService command uses the following syntax:
CreateService <-DomainName|-dn> DomainName <-NodeName|-nn> NodeName <-UserName|-un> Username <-Password|-pd> Password <-ServiceName|-sn> ServiceName <-HTTPProtocolType|-hp> HTTPProtocolType [<-HTTPPort|-pt> HTTPPort] [<-HTTPSPort|-spt> HTTPSPort] [<-HadoopServicePrincipalName|-hpn> HadoopServicePrincipalName] [<-HadoopKeyTab|-hkt> HadoopKeyTab] [<-ServiceDescription|-sd> ServiceDescription] [<-ResilienceTimeout|-re> ResilienceTimeout] [<-FolderPath|-fp> FolderPath] [<-BackupNodes|-bn> BackupNodes] [<-KeyStoreFile|-kf> KeyStoreFile] [<-KeystorePassword|-kp> KeystorePassword] [<-TruststoreFile|-tf> TruststoreFile] [<-TruststorePassword|-tp> TruststorePassword] [<-SecurityDomain|-sdn> SecurityDomain] [<-SSLProtocol|-sp> SSLProtocol] [<-loggedInUserAsImpersonationUser|-uiu> UseLoggedInUserAsImpersonationUser]
The following table describes infacmd mas CreateService options and arguments:
Option
Argument
Description
-DomainName
-dn
domain_name
Required. Name of the Informatica domain. You can set the domain name with the -dn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN. If you set a domain name with both methods, the -dn option takes precedence.
-NodeName
-nn
node_name
Node where the Metadata Access Service runs. You can run the Data Integration Service only on a node.
-UserName
-un
user_name
Required if the domain uses Native or LDAP authentication. User name to connect to the domain. You can set the user name with the -un option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_USER. If you set a user name with both methods, the -un option takes precedence.
Optional if the domain uses Kerberos authentication. To run the command with single sign-on, do not set the user name. If you set the user name, the command runs without single sign-on.
-Password
-pd
password
Required if you specify the user name. Password for the user name. The password is case sensitive. You can set a password with the -pd option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_DOMAIN_PASSWORD. If you set a password with both methods, the password set with the -pd option takes precedence.
-ServiceName
-sn
service_name
Required. Name of the Metadata Access Service.
The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. The characters must be compatible with the code page of the associated repository. The name cannot exceed 230 characters, have leading or trailing spaces, or contain carriage returns, tabs, or the following characters:
/ * ? < > " |
-HTTPProtocolType
-hp
http_protocol_type
Security protocol that the Metadata Access Service uses. Enter one of the following values:
  • HTTP. Requests to the service must use an HTTP URL.
  • HTTPS. Requests to the service must use an HTTPS URL.
When you set the HTTP protocol type to HTTPS, you enable Transport Layer Security (TLS) for the service.
Default is HTTP.
-HTTPPort
-pt
http_port
Required if you do not specify an HTTPS port. Unique HTTP port number used for each Metadata Access Service process. After you create the service, you can define different port numbers for each Metadata Access Service process.
Default is 7080.
-HTTPSPort
-spt
https_port
Required if you do not specify an HTTP port. Unique HTTPS port number used for each Metadata Access Service process. After you create the service, you can define different port numbers for each Metadata Access Service process.
-HadoopServicePrincipalName
-hpn
hadoop_spn
Service Principal Name (SPN) of the Metadata Access Service to connect to a Hadoop cluster that uses Kerberos authentication.
-HadoopKeyTab
-hkt
keytab_file_path
The file path to the Kerberos keytab file on the machine on which the Metadata Access Service runs.
-ServiceDescription
-sd
service_description
Optional. Service description.
-ResilienceTimeout
-re
timeout_period_in_seconds
Optional. Amount of time in seconds that infacmd attempts to establish or re-establish a connection to the domain. You can set the resilience timeout period with the -re option or the environment variable INFA_CLIENT_RESILIENCE_TIMEOUT. If you set the resilience timeout period with both methods, the -re option takes precedence.
-FolderPath
-fp
full_folder_path
Optional. Full path, excluding the domain name, to the folder in which you want to create the Metadata Access Service. Must be in the following format:
/parent_folder/child_folder
Default is “/” (the domain).
-BackupNodes
-bn
node_name1,node_name2,...
Optional. Nodes on which the service can run if the primary node is unavailable. You can configure backup nodes if you have high availability.
-KeystoreFile
-kf
keystore_file_location
Path and file name of the keystore file that contains the keys and certificates required if you use the HTTPS protocol for the Metadata Access Service. You can create a keystore file with a keytool. keytool is a utility that generates and stores private or public key pairs and associated certificates in a keystore file. You can use the self-signed certificate or use a certificate signed by a certificate authority.
-KeystorePassword
-kp
keystore_password
Password for the keystore file.
-TruststoreFile
-tf
trust_store_file
Required when the domain is SSL- enabled. Domain truststore file location in the cluster.
-TruststorePassword
-tp
trust_store_password
Required when the domain is SSL- enabled. Truststore domain password.
-SecurityDomain
-sdn
security_domain
Required if the domain uses LDAP authentication. Optional if the domain uses native authentication or Kerberos authentication. Name of the security domain to which the domain user belongs. You can set a security domain with the -sdn option or the environment variable INFA_DEFAULT_SECURITY_DOMAIN. If you set a security domain name with both methods, the -sdn option takes precedence. The security domain name is case sensitive.
If the domain uses native or LDAP authentication, the default is Native. If the domain uses Kerberos authentication, the default is the LDAP security domain created during installation. The name of the security domain is the same as the user realm specified during installation.
-SSLProtocol
-sp
ssl_protocol
Optional. Secure Sockets Layer protocol to use.
-loggedInUserAsImpersonationUser
-uiu
impersonation_user_name
Required if the Hadoop cluster uses Kerberos authentication. Hadoop impersonation user. The user name that the Metadata Access Service impersonates to run mappings in the Hadoop environment.
