TDM Services

TDM Services

TDM application services consist of the Test Data Manager Service, profiling services, and PowerCenter application services. The application services are created in the Administrator tool.
TDM requires the following 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 workflows that users generate in Test Data Manager for TDM operations.
Model Repository Service
An application service that manages the Model repository for data discovery operations.
Data Integration Service
An application service that performs 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 run a profile, the Data Integration Service also stores data from data discovery profiles in the profiling warehouse. 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 push down the transformation logic into Hadoop clusters.
Analyst Service
An application service that manages the Analyst tool. TDM uses the Analyst tool to link TDM global objects to objects in the Business Glossary. The license for the Analyst Service must support Business Glossary.
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.
Test Data Manager Service
The TDM application service that manages the TDM repository. Test Data Manager accesses the Test Data Manager Service to use database content from the TDM repository and to connect to other services to perform TDM operations.
