Web Services Hub Overview

Web Services Hub Overview

The Web Services Hub Service is an application service in the Informatica domain that exposes PowerCenter functionality to external clients through web services. It receives requests from web service clients and passes them to the PowerCenter Integration Service or PowerCenter Repository Service. The PowerCenter Integration Service or PowerCenter Repository Service processes the requests and sends a response to the Web Services Hub. The Web Services Hub sends the response back to the web service client.
The Web Services Hub Console does not require authentication. You do not need to log in when you start the Web Services Hub Console. On the Web Services Hub Console, you can view the properties and the WSDL of any web service. You can test any web service running on the Web Services Hub. However, when you test a protected service you must run the login operation before you run the web service.
You can use the Administrator tool to complete the following tasks related to the Web Services Hub:
  • Create a Web Services Hub. You can create multiple Web Services Hub Services in a domain.
  • Enable or disable the Web Services Hub. You must enable the Web Services Hub to run web service workflows. You can disable the Web Services Hub to prevent external clients from accessing the web services while performing maintenance on the machine or modifying the repository.
  • Configure the Web Services Hub properties. You can configure Web Services Hub properties such as the length of time a session can remain idle before time out and the character encoding to use for the service.
  • Configure the associated repository. You must associate a repository with a Web Services Hub. The Web Services Hub exposes the web-enabled workflows in the associated repository.
  • View the logs for the Web Services Hub. You can view the event logs for the Web Services Hub in the Log Viewer.
  • Remove a Web Services Hub. You can remove a Web Services Hub if it becomes obsolete.
