Required Databases

The Data Integration Service can connect to multiple relational databases. The databases that the service can connect to depend on the license key generated for your organization. When you create the Data Integration Service, you provide connection information to the databases.
Create the following databases before you create the Data Integration Service:
Data object cache database
Stores cached logical data objects and virtual tables. Data object caching enables the Data Integration Service to access pre-built logical data objects and virtual tables. You need a data object cache database to increase performance for mappings, SQL data service queries, and web service requests.

Workflow database
