Creating a publication that triggers a Data Integration task

Creating a publication that triggers a Data Integration task

Use the Navigator to create publications that trigger a Data Integration task to retrieve the data from the publishing application and write the data to the topic on the
Cloud Integration Hub
publication repository.
The following conditions must exist before you create a publication:
  • An application to publish the data from must exist. You can either use an existing application, or create and save a new application.
  • A topic to publish data to must exist. You can either use an existing topic, or create and save a new topic.
  • A publication Data Integration task must exist.
You can also create publications on the topic page. For more information, see Creating a topic.
  1. In the Navigator, click
    New
    Publication
    .
    The
    New Publication
    page appears.
  2. Enter the publication name. Optionally, enter a description for the publication.
  3. Choose the publication mode, enabled or disabled.
    A disabled publication does not run according to schedule or by an external API. You can only run a disabled publication from the
    Explore
    page or from the topic page of the topic that the publication publishes to.
  4. Select
    Publish with a Data Integration task
    .
  5. Choose the application that publishes the data.
  6. Choose the topic that the application publishes the data to.
  7. Select the task that defines the publication mapping.
  8. If the publication publishes large amounts of data, increase the write batch size to optimize the performance of the publication.
    Increasing the batch size increases the memory consumption of the Secure Agent and might impact the performance of the Secure Agent machine.
  9. Select the method and the frequency of data publishing.
    Manually or by an external trigger
    No schedule. You can use the following methods to run the publication:
    • Run manually from the
      Cloud Integration Hub
      explorer.
    • Run by an API. Call a REST API that starts the publication.
    For file publications that use this scheduling option and that publish multiple files, all the files must be present in the source location when the publication starts.
    By schedule
    Runs the publication according to the defined schedule. Select one of the following options:
    • Every n minutes. Runs the publication in intervals of up to 60 minutes. You select the number of minutes from the list.
    • Hourly. Runs the publication in intervals of up to 24 hours. You select the number of hours from the list. The publication runs at the beginning of the hour. For example, if you enter 2, the publication runs at 00:00, 02:00, and at consecutive two-hour intervals.
    • Daily. Runs the publication at the same hour every day.
    • Weekly. Runs the publication every week on one or more days at the same hour.
    • Monthly. Runs the publication every month on a specific date or a specific day at the same hour.
    Define the publication intervals in the
    Repeat running
    area.
    For file publications that use this scheduling option and that publish multiple files, all the files must be present in the source location when the publication starts.
