Application Services

Application Services

TDM uses Informatica services. Create the services in the Administrator tool.
TDM uses the following application services:
PowerCenter Repository Service
An application service that manages the PowerCenter repository. The PowerCenter Repository Service accepts requests from the PowerCenter Integration Service when a workflow runs.
PowerCenter Integration Service
An application service that runs data subset, data generation, and data masking workflows. When you create the Test Data Manager Service in the Informatica Administrator, you select the PowerCenter Integration Service that runs the workflows.
Model Repository Service
An application service that manages the Model repository for data discovery operations.
Data Integration Service
An application service that performs the data discovery operations. The Data Integration Service connects to the Model Repository Service to store metadata from data discovery profiles in the Model repository. When you create a Data Integration Service in the Administrator tool, you select the data profiling warehouse to store data from data discovery profiles. The Data Integration Service performs data movement and data masking operations in the Hadoop environment. To run a Hadoop plan, TDM uses the Data Integration Service to move the data into Hadoop clusters. The Data Integration Service performs data coverage tasks for the test data warehouse.
Test Data Warehouse Service
An application service that manages the test data warehouse repository and the test data warehouse. The Test Data Warehouse Service connects to the test data warehouse repository to copy the metadata created when you create a data set. It creates the tables for data sets in the test data warehouse.
Analyst Service
Manages the Analyst tool that TDM uses to link TDM global objects to objects in the Business Glossary. The license for the Analyst Service to use database content from the TDM repository.
Test Data Manager Service
An application service that creates and manages the TDM repository. The Test Data Manager accesses the Test Data Manager Service to use database content from the TDM repository.
