Create the Interactive Data Preparation Service

Create the
Interactive Data Preparation Service

If you did not create the
Interactive Data Preparation Service
service during the console, or if you ran the silent installer, create the service through the Administrator tool.
Before you create the
Interactive Data Preparation Service
, verify that you have created and enabled the following services:
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Manage
    tab.
  2. Click the
    Services and Nodes
    view.
  3. In the Domain Navigator, select the domain.
  4. Click
    Actions
    New
    Interactive Data Preparation Service.
  5. Enter the following properties:
    Property
    Description
    Name
    Name of the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    .
    The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. It cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain spaces or the following special characters: ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
    Description
    Description of the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    . The description cannot exceed 765 characters.
    Location
    Location of the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    in the Informatica domain. You can create the service within a folder in the domain.
    License
    License object with the data lake option that allows the use of the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    .
    Node Assignment
    Type of node in the Informatica domain on which the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    runs. Select
    Single Node
    if a single service process runs on the node or
    Primary and Backup Nodes
    if a service process is enabled on each node for high availability. However, only a single process runs at any given time, and the other processes maintain standby status.
    The
    Primary and Backup Nodes
    option will be available for selection based on the license configuration.
    Select the
    Grid
    option to ensure horizontal scalability by using a grid with multiple
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    nodes. Improved scalability supports high performance, interactive data preparation during increased data volumes and number of users. Each user is assigned a node in the grid using round-robin method to distribute the load across the nodes.
    Default is Single Node.
    Node
    Name of the node on which the
    Interactive Data Preparation Service
    runs.
  6. Click
    Next
    .
  7. Enter the following Data Preparation repository properties:
    Property
    Description
    Database Type
    Type of database to use for the Data Preparation repository.

    Schema Name
    Schema or database name of the Data Preparation repository database.
    Connection String
    Connection string used to connect to the database.
    To connect to an Oracle database, format the string as follows:
    jdbc:informatica:oracle://<database host name>:<port>;ServiceName=<service name>
    To connect to a non-secure MySQL or MariaDB database, format the string as follows:
    jdbc:mysql://<database host name>:<port>
    The connection string is optional if you connect to a non-secure database.
