PowerCenter Target Service Type

Use a PowerCenter target service to stream data to Informatica PowerCenter. To create a PowerCenter target service, use the PowerCenter target service type. When you add a PowerCenter target service to a data flow, EDS generates a value for a PowerCenter target service property called Receiver Type ID. EDS also generates a value for a link property called Transport Topic. Add the PowerCenter target service to the data flow, get the values of those properties, and then configure PowerCenter.
You can configure the following property for the PowerCenter target service type:
Entity Name
Name of the PowerCenter target service. Maximum length is 32 characters.
The PowerCenter target service is the data source for PowerCenter. The PowerCenter target service consumes the messages that a source service publishes and forwards the messages to PowerCenter. To consume the messages that a source service publishes, PowerCenter requires Informatica PowerExchange for Ultra Messaging. Install PowerExchange for Ultra Messaging and create the configuration files that it requires to read and write messages. For information about installing PowerExchange for Ultra Messaging, see Informatica PowerExchange for Ultra Messaging User Guide for PowerCenter.
After you create the configuration files, perform the following tasks:
  1. Open the Ultra Messaging source and target configuration file.
  2. In the receiver type options section of the configuration file, specify the receiver type ID that EDS assigned to the PowerCenter target service.
    The following lines from an Ultra Messaging source and target configuration file show how to specify the receiver type ID:
    <options type="receiver">
    <option name="umq_receiver_type_id" default-value="100"/>
    </options>
  3. In PowerCenter, create an Ultra Messaging connection. When creating the connection, perform the following tasks:
    • In Destination Name, enter the topic name that EDS assigned to the connection.
    • In Configuration File Full Path, specify the Ultra Messaging source and target configuration file to which you added the receiver type ID of the PowerCenter target service.
    • From the UM Service Level list, select Queueing.
