The Data Integration Service is an application service in the Informatica domain that performs data integration tasks for Informatica Analyst and Informatica Developer. It also performs data integration tasks for external clients.
When you preview or run mappings, profiles, SQL data services, and web services in the Analyst tool or the Developer tool, the application client sends requests to the Data Integration Service to perform the data integration tasks. When you start a command from the command line or an external client to run mappings, SQL data services, web services, and workflows in an application, the command sends the request to the Data Integration Service.
The Data Integration Service performs the following tasks:
Runs mappings and generates mapping previews in the Developer tool.
Runs profiles and generates previews for profiles in the Analyst tool and the Developer tool.
Runs scorecards for the profiles in the Analyst tool and the Developer tool.
Runs SQL data services and web services in the Developer tool.
Runs mappings in a deployed application.
Runs workflows in a deployed application.
Caches data objects for mappings and SQL data services deployed in an application.
Runs SQL queries that end users run against an SQL data service through a third-party JDBC or ODBC client tool.
Runs web service requests against a web service.
Create and configure a Data Integration Service in the Administrator tool. You can create one or more Data Integration Services on a node. Based on your license, the Data Integration Service can be highly available.
