Analyst Service Architecture

Analyst Service Architecture

The Analyst Service connects to application services, databases, and directories.
The following figure shows the Analyst tool components that the Analyst Service connects to in the Informatica domain:
""
The Analyst Service connects to the following components:
  • Data Integration Services. The Analyst Service manages the connection to a Data Integration Service that runs profiles, scorecards, and mapping specifications in the Analyst tool. The Analyst Service also manages the connection to a Data Integration Service that runs workflows.
  • Model Repository Service.
    The Analyst Service manages the connection to a Model Repository Service for the Analyst tool. The Analyst tool connects to the Model repository database to create, update, and delete projects and objects in the Analyst tool.
  • Search Service. The Analyst Service manages the connection to the Search Service that enables and manages searches in the Analyst tool. The Analyst Service identifies the associated Search Service based on the Model Repository Service associated with the Analyst Service.
  • Metadata Manager Service. The Analyst Service manages the connection to a Metadata Manager Service that runs data lineage for scorecards in the Analyst tool.
  • Profiling warehouse database. The Analyst tool identifies the profiling warehouse database. The Data Integration Service writes profile data and scorecard results to the database.
  • Exception management audit database. The Analyst Service manages the connection to a database that can store all audit data for the exception management tasks that users work on in the Analyst tool.
  • Flat file cache directory. The Analyst Service manages the connection to the directory that stores uploaded flat files that you import for reference tables and flat file data sources in the Analyst tool.
  • Business Glossary export file directory. The Analyst Service manages the connection to the directory that stores the business glossary as a file after you export it from the Analyst tool.
  • Business Glossary asset attachment directory. The Analyst Service identifies the directory that stores any attachment that an Analyst tool user attaches to a Business Glossary asset.
  • Informatica Analyst. The Analyst Service defines the URL for the Analyst tool.
