Metadata Manager Service Overview

Metadata Manager Service Overview

The Metadata Manager Service is an application service that runs the Metadata Manager application in an Informatica domain. The Metadata Manager application manages access to metadata in the Metadata Manager repository. Create a Metadata Manager Service in the domain to access the Metadata Manager application.
The following figure shows the Metadata Manager components managed by the Metadata Manager Service on a node in an Informatica domain:
The Metadata Manager Service manages the following components:
  • Metadata Manager application. The Metadata Manager application is a web-based application. Use Metadata Manager to browse and analyze metadata from disparate source repositories. You can load, browse, and analyze metadata from application, business intelligence, data integration, data modeling, and relational metadata sources.
  • PowerCenter repository for Metadata Manager. Contains the metadata objects used by the PowerCenter Integration Service to load metadata into the Metadata Manager warehouse. The metadata objects include sources, targets, sessions, and workflows.
  • PowerCenter Repository Service. Manages connections to the PowerCenter repository for Metadata Manager.
  • PowerCenter Integration Service. Runs the workflows in the PowerCenter repository to read from metadata sources and load metadata into the Metadata Manager warehouse.
  • Metadata Manager repository. Contains the Metadata Manager warehouse and models. The Metadata Manager warehouse is a centralized metadata warehouse that stores the metadata from metadata sources. Models define the metadata that Metadata Manager extracts from metadata sources.
  • Metadata sources. The application, business intelligence, data integration, data modeling, and database management sources that Metadata Manager extracts metadata from.
