  2. Click ActionsNewEdge Data Streaming Service.
    The New Edge Data Streaming Service window appears.
  3. Enter the following general properties for the service:
    Name of the Edge Data Streaming Service. The name is not case sensitive and must be unique within the Informatica domain. The characters must be compatible with the code page of the associated repository. The name cannot exceed 128 characters or begin with @. It also cannot contain spaces or the following special characters:
    ` ~ % ^ * + = { } \ ; : ' " / ? . , < > | ! ( ) ] [
    Description of the service. The description cannot exceed 765 characters.
    Name of the Informatica domain and folder where you want to create the service. Optionally, click Browse to select another folder in the Informatica domain.
    License assigned to the service. Select from the list of EDS licenses available.
    Node on which the service runs. Select Single Node to assign the service to a node.
    The host name or machine name where the service runs.
  4. Click Next.
  5. Enter the following database properties for the service:
    Database Type
    The type of database that contains the EDS repository.
    You can select one of the following databases:
    • DB2
    • Oracle
    • SQLServer
    • Sybase

    Indicate that the database uses Kerberos authentication. This option is supported only for SQLServer.
    The database user.
    Database password corresponding to the database user.
    JDBC Connect String
    The connection string used to connect to the database.
    • IBM DB2. jdbc:informatica:db2://<host name>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
    • Microsoft SQL Server. Server: jdbc:informatica:sqlserver://<host name>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
    • Kerberos-enabled Microsoft SQL Server. jdbc:informatica:sqlserver://<host name>:<port>;DatabaseName=qadb;integratedSecurity=true;authenticationScheme=JavaKerberos;encrypt=false
    • Oracle. jdbc:informatica:oracle://<host name>:<port>;ServiceName=<service name>
    • Sybase. jdbc:informatica:sybase://<host name>:<port>;DatabaseName=<database name>
    Secure JDBC Parameters
    Secure JDBC parameters that you want to append to the database connection URL.
    Use this property to specify secure connection parameters such as passwords. The Administrator tool does not display secure parameters or parameter values in the Edge Data Streaming Service properties. Enter the parameters as name=value pairs separated by semicolon characters (;). For example:
    If secure communication is enabled for the database, enter the secure JDBC parameters in this property.
    Database Schema
    The schema name for the Microsoft SQL Server database.
    Database Tablespace
    Tablespace name for IBM DB2 database. When you specify the tablespace name, the Edge Data Streaming Service creates all repository tables in the same tablespace. You cannot use spaces in the tablespace name.
