Search Server Connection

Search Server Connection

To connect to the Search Server, you provide a host name and port number. Then, you configure the Rulebase connection string. The Rulebase contains information about systems that IIR uses to search and match data. The Rulebase connection in an Identity Resolution transformation specifies the database that contains the Rulebase.
You cannot change the host name or Rulebase connection after you create the transformation.

IR Hostname

Host name of the machine where the Informatica Identity Resolution Server runs.


Port number of the Search Server.

Rulebase Connection String

Connection string to the Search Server. You can specify the Rulebase connection as ODBC or SSA. Configure ODBC and SSA in the IIR host.
The following table describes the ODBC connection information:
Connection Property
Rulebase Number
The number designated for the IR Rulebase.
User Name
Database user name.
Password for the database user name.
Service Name
Service name defined in the odbc.ini file.
To connect through SSA, you need to provide the alias. The alias hides the connection string from application programs. IIR uses aliases for Rulebases, databases, and source names.
