Domain Selection

After you review the Pre-Installation summary, you can enter the domain information.
  1. Press
    1
    to create a domain.
    When you create a domain, the node that you create becomes a gateway node in the domain. The gateway node contains a Service Manager that manages all domain operations.
  2. Select whether you want to enable secure communication for services in the domain.
    1. Press
      1
      to disable secure communication for the domain.
    2. Press
      2
      to enable secure communication for the domain.
    By default, if you enable secure communication for the domain, the installer sets up an HTTPS connection for the Informatica Administrator. You can also create a domain configuration repository on a secure database.
  3. Specify the connection details for Informatica Administrator.
    1. If you do not enable secure communication for the domain, you can specify whether to set up a secure HTTPS connection for the Informatica Administrator.
      The following table describes the options available to enable or disable a secure connection to Informatica Administrator:
      Option
      Description
      Enable HTTPS for Informatica Administrator
      Set up a secure connection to Informatica Administrator.
      Disable HTTPS
      Do not set up a secure connection to Informatica Administrator.
    2. If you enable secure communication for the domain or if you enable HTTPS connection for the Informatica Administrator, enter the keystore file and port number for the HTTPS connection to Informatica Administrator.
      The following table describes the connection information you must enter if you enable HTTPS:
      Option
      Description

      1 - Use a keystore generated by the installer
      2 - Specify a keystore file and password
      If you select to use a keystore file generated by the installer, the installer creates a self-signed keystore file named Default.keystore in the following location:
      <Informatica installation directory>/tomcat/conf/
    3. If you specify the keystore, enter the password and location of the keystore file.
    4. If you enabled secure communication for the domain, the
      Domain Security - Secure Communication
      section appears.

      section appears. Skip to Domain Configuration Repository.
  4. Select whether to enable SAML authentication to configure Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML)-based single sign-on (SSO) support for web-based Informatica applications in an Informatica domain.
