Application Service Dependencies

Application Service Dependencies

A dependent application service is an application service that requires one or more other application services. Before you create a dependent service, you must create all of the application services that the dependent service requires.
For example, the Data Integration Service depends on the Model Repository Service. When you create a Data Integration Service, the Administrator tool prompts you for the name of a Model Repository Service. Therefore, you must create a Model Repository Service before you create a Data Integration Service.
Services that access Model repository objects can depend on each other. In addition, services that access PowerCenter repository objects can depend on each other. The application service dependencies determine the order that you must create the services.

Services that Access Model Repository Objects

Create the application services that access Model repository objects in the following order:
  1. Model Repository Service.
    The Model Repository Service has no application service dependencies.
  2. Data Integration Service.
    The Data Integration Service depends on the Model Repository Service.
  3. Analyst Service.
    The Analyst Service depends on the Model Repository Service and the Data Integration Service.
    If you want to run data lineage for scorecards in the Analyst tool, the Analyst Service depends on the Metadata Manager Service. You can create the Analyst Service and the Metadata Manager Service in any order. You can select the Metadata Manager Service that runs data lineage for the Analyst Service when you create the Analyst Service or after you create the Analyst Service.
  4. Content Management Service.
    The Content Management Service depends on the Model Repository Service and the Data Integration Service.
  5. Search Service.
    The Search Service depends on the Model Repository Service, the Data Integration Service, and the Analyst Service.

Services that Access PowerCenter Repository Objects

Create the application services that access PowerCenter repository objects in the following order:
  1. PowerCenter Repository Service.
    The PowerCenter Repository Service has no application service dependencies.
  2. PowerCenter Integration Service.
    The PowerCenter Integration Service depends on the PowerCenter Repository Service.
  3. Metadata Manager Service.
    The Metadata Manager Service depends on the PowerCenter Repository Service and the PowerCenter Integration Service.
  4. Web Services Hub.
    The Web Services Hub Service depends on the PowerCenter Repository Service.
