Configure the Model Repository Service

Configure the Model Repository Service

In the
Model Repository Service information
section of the
Create service
page, you can provide the connectivity information for the Model Repository Service and the database information for the Model repository.
  1. Enter the name of the Model Repository Service. Default value is mrs.
    • The name of the service must be unique within the domain. It must not exceed 128 characters or begin the special character
      @
      . It must also not contain spaces or the following special characters:
      ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
    • You cannot change the name of the service after it is created.
  2. Enter the name, user name, and password of the Informatica domain. The default value for domain name is domain and the default values for user name is Administrator.
  3. Enter the working directory of the service.
  4. Enter the image name and HTTP port of the node on which the Model Repository Service needs to run. The default HTTP port is 8075.
  5. Optionally, set additional environment variables, expose additional ports, and add additional host alias names for the service.
    If you choose to set additional environment variables, expose additional ports, or add additional host alias names for the service, ensure that you also include the existing values in the list. This prevents the existing domain configurations from getting affected.
  6. Specify the type, user ID, and user password of the Model repository database.
  7. Enter the parameters for the database.
    1. If you select Microsoft SQL Server, you can choose to enter the schema name for the database. If you select Oracle or PostgreSQL, the installer creates the tables in the default schema.
    2. To enter the JDBC connection information, you can use either the JDBC URL or the JDBC connection string.
      To use the JDBC URL information, select
      JDBC URL
      . To enter the connection information using the JDBC URL information, specify the following JDBC URL properties:
      • Database address.
        Host name and port number for the database.
      • Database service name.
        Oracle service name, the database name for Microsoft SQL Server, or the database name for PostgreSQL.
      Optionally, choose to include additional JDBC parameters.
    3. To use a custom JDBC connection string, select
      JDBC connection string
      .
      You can use the following syntax in the JDBC connection string to connect to a secure database:
      Oracle
      jdbc:Informatica:oracle://<host name>:<port number>;ServiceName=<service name>
      PostgreSQL
      jdbc:Informatica:postgresql://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=<database name>
      Microsoft SQL Server
      jdbc:Informatica:sqlserver://<host name>:<port number>;SelectMethod=cursor;DatabaseName=<database name>
  8. Specify whether the database is secure.
    If you select the secure database option, you need to provide inputs for the qualified path to the database truststore file, truststore password, and specify the secure JDBC Parameters. By default, the value for the secure JDBC parameters is
    EncryptionMethod=SSL;HostNameInCertificate=;ValidateServerCertificate=false;
  9. Optionally, choose to configure the pod resources, and then update the request and maximum limit values of CPU and memory resources allocated for the service.
  10. Click
    Create service
    .
The service is created. You can view the status of the service along with the tasks performed by the installer in the log summary.
