Create the Model Repository Service

Create the Model Repository Service

Use the service creation wizard in the Administrator tool to create the service.
  1. In the Administrator tool, click the
    Manage
    tab.
  2. Click
    Actions
    New
    Model Repository Service
    .
    The
    New Model Repository Service
    dialog box appears.
  3. On the
    New Model Repository Service - Step 1 of 2
    page, enter the following properties:
    Property
    Description
    Name
    Name of the service. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the domain. It cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain spaces or the following special characters:
    ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
    Description
    Description of the service. The description cannot exceed 765 characters.
    Location
    Domain and folder where the service is created. Click
    Browse
    to choose a different folder. You can move the service after you create it.
    License
    License object that allows use of the service.
    Node
    Node on which the service runs.
    Backup Nodes
    If your license includes high availability, nodes on which the service can run if the primary node is unavailable.
  4. Click
    Next
    .
    The
    New Model Repository Service - Step 2 of 2
    page appears.
  5. Enter the following properties for the Model repository database:
    Property
    Description
    Database Type
    The type of the repository database.
    Username
    The database user name for the repository.
    Password
    Repository database password for the database user.
    Database Schema
    Available for Microsoft SQL Server and PostgreSQL. Name of the schema that will contain Model repository tables.
    Database Tablespace
    Available for IBM DB2. Name of the tablespace in which to create the tables. For a multi-partition IBM DB2 database, the tablespace must span a single node and a single partition.
  6. Enter the JDBC connection string that the service uses to connect to the Model repository database.
    Use the following syntax for the connection string for the selected database type:
    Database Type
    Connection String Syntax
    IBM DB2
    jdbc:informatica:db2://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=<database name>;BatchPerformanceWorkaround=true;DynamicSections=3000
    Microsoft SQL Server
    • Microsoft SQL Server that uses the default instance
      jdbc:informatica:sqlserver://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=<database name>;SnapshotSerializable=true
    • Microsoft SQL Server that uses a named instance
      jdbc:informatica:sqlserver://<host name>\<named instance name>;DatabaseName=<database name>;SnapshotSerializable=true
    • Microsoft Azure.
      jdbc:informatica:sqlserver://<host_name>:<port_number>;DatabaseName=<database_name>;SnapshotSerializable=true; SnapshotSerializable=true;EncryptionMethod=SSL;HostNameInCertificate=*.<hostnameincertificate>;ValidateServerCertificate=true
    • Azure SQL Database with Active Directory authentication.
      jdbc:informatica: sqlserver://<host_name>:<port_number>;database=<database_name>;encrypt=true;AuthenticationMethod=ActiveDirectoryPassword;trustServerCertificate=false;hostNameInCertificate=*.database.windows.net;loginTimeout=<seconds>
    Oracle
    jdbc:informatica:oracle://<host name>:<port number>;SID=<database name>;MaxPooledStatements=20;CatalogOptions=0;BatchPerformanceWorkaround=true
    PostgreSQL
    jdbc:informatica:postgresql://<host name>:<port number>;DatabaseName=
  7. If the Model repository database is secured with the SSL protocol, you must enter the secure database parameters in the
    Secure JDBC Parameters
    field.
    Enter the parameters as
    name=value
    pairs separated by semicolon characters (;). For example:
    param1=value1;param2=value2
    Enter the following secure database parameters:
    Secure Database Parameter
    Description
    EncryptionMethod
    Required. Indicates whether data is encrypted when transmitted over the network. This parameter must be set to
    SSL
    .
    ValidateServerCertificate
    Optional. Indicates whether Informatica validates the certificate that the database server sends.
    If this parameter is set to True, Informatica validates the certificate that the database server sends. If you specify the HostNameInCertificate parameter, Informatica also validates the host name in the certificate.
    If this parameter is set to False, Informatica does not validate the certificate that the database server sends. Informatica ignores any truststore information that you specify.
    HostNameInCertificate
    Optional. Host name of the machine that hosts the secure database. If you specify a host name, Informatica validates the host name included in the connection string against the host name in the SSL certificate.
    cryptoProtocolVersion
    Required. Specifies the cryptographic protocol to use to connect to a secure database. You can set the parameter to
    cryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.1
    or
    cryptoProtocolVersion=TLSv1.2
    based on the cryptographic protocol used by the database server.
    TrustStore
    Required. Path and file name of the truststore file that contains the SSL certificate for the database.
    If you do not include the path for the truststore file, Informatica looks for the file in the following default directory:
    <Informatica installation directory>/tomcat/bin
    TrustStorePassword
    Required. Password for the truststore file for the secure database.
    Informatica appends the secure JDBC parameters to the JDBC connection string. If you include the secure JDBC parameters directly in the connection string, do not enter any parameter in the
    Secure JDBC Parameters
    field.
  8. Click
    Test Connection
    to verify that you can connect to the database.
  9. Select
    No content exists under specified connection string. Create new content.
  10. Click
    Finish
    .
    The domain creates the Model Repository Service, creates content for the Model repository in the specified database, and enables the service.
After you create the service through the wizard, you can edit the properties or configure other properties.
