Content Management Service Architecture

Content Management Service Architecture

The Developer tool and the Analyst tool interact with a Content Management Service to retrieve configuration information for reference data and to compile rule specifications.
You associate a Content Management Service with a Data Integration Service and Model Repository Service in a domain. If the Data Integration Service runs a mapping that reads reference data, you must create the Data Integration Service and Content Management Service on the same node. You associate a Data Integration Service with a single Content Management Service.
The Content Management Service must be available when you use the following resources:
Address reference data
The Content Management Service manages configuration information for address reference data. The Data Integration Service maintains a copy of the configuration information. The Data Integration Service applies the configuration information when it runs a mapping that reads the address reference data.
Identity population files
The Content Management Service manages the list of the population files on the node. When you configure a Match transformation or a Comparison transformation, you select a population file from the current list. The Data Integration Service applies the population configuration when it runs a mapping that reads the population files.
Probabilistic model files and classifier model files
The Content Management Service stores the locations of any probabilistic model file and classifier model file on the node. The Content Management Service also manages the compilation status of each model.
Update a probabilistic model or a classifier model on the master Content Management Service machine. When you update a model, the master Content Management Service updates the corresponding model file on any node that you associate with the Model repository.
If you add a node to a domain and you create a Content Management Service on the node, run the infacmd cms ResyncData command. The command updates the node with probabilistic model files or classifier model files from the master Content Management Service machine.
Reference tables
The Content Management Service identifies the database that stores data values for the reference table objects in the associated Model repository.
Rule specifications
The Content Management Service manages the compilation of rule specifications into mapplets. When you compile a rule specification in the Analyst tool, the Analyst Service selects a Content Management Service to generate the mapplet. The Analyst tool uses the Model Repository Service configuration to select the Content Management Service.

Content Management Service and Operating System Profiles

You might configure the Data Integration Service to run mappings and other objects through an operating system profile. You can assign the operating system profile to an Analyst tool user or a Developer tool user.
If you do not assign the operating system profile to a user, the user might not be able to perform the full range of operations that the Content Management Service enables. To enable Analyst tool users and Developer tool users to perform all operations with the Content Management Service, assign the default operating system profile for the associated Data Integration Service to the users.
