Service Connections

Service Connections

TDM requires connections to the following services:
Data Integration Service
TDM requires a connection to a Data Integration Service for data discovery operations. The Data Integration Service is the service in the Informatica domain that performs the data discovery operation. The Data Integration Service performs data movement and data masking operations in the Hadoop environment.
Model Repository Service
An application service that manages the Model repository for data discovery operations.
PowerCenter Integration Service
An application service that runs workflows that users generate in Test Data Manager for TDM operations. A data masking, data generation, or data subset workflow requires a connection to a PowerCenter Integration Service. When you generate a workflow from a plan, select the name of the PowerCenter Integration Service to use.
PowerCenter Repository Service
An application service that manages the PowerCenter repository. When you import metadata into Test Data Manager from a PowerCenter source, the TDM Server sends a request to the PowerCenter Repository Service to extract source metadata from the PowerCenter repository and load it to the TDM repository.
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.
