Configuring the connection properties

To test run a IBM Transformation Extender map on a Sterling B2B Integrator server and deploy it to a Sterling B2B Integrator map repository, you must configure the connectivity properties for the services in the Design Studio.

About this task

Specify the Design Studio settings for the connection properties in the Sterling B2B Integrator preferences under Connectivity. You must enter values for the Sterling B2B Integrator server name, port number for the Sterling B2B Integrator Dashboard, and the user name and password Dashboard authentication information; these are required fields. The connection is established using HyperText Transport Protocol (HTTP), which is the default connection type, or HyperText Transport Protocol Secure (HTTPS).

To configure a connection to the server in the Design Studio:

Procedure

  1. In the Design Studio, click Window > Preferences > Transformation Extender > Map > Sterling B2B Integrator. The Sterling B2B Integrator preferences pane opens. Enter values and select options under the Connectivity section.
  2. Select one of the following options to specify how you want to set the connection properties for the services:
    • To specify that the same set of connection properties be used for the Sterling B2B Integrator services, select the Use the same server connection properties for 'Test Map' and 'Check In Map' services check box. The preferences pane displays the Connection Properties tab.
    • To specify that a different set of connection properties be used for the Sterling B2B Integrator services, clear the Use the same server connection properties for 'Test Map' and 'Check In Map' services check box. The preferences pane displays the Test Map Service and the Check In Map Service tabs.
    Under the tab that the preference pane displays based on your selection, enter values in the fields and select the required options for the connection properties.
  3. Enter the host name or IP address of the Sterling B2B Integrator server in the Login server field.
  4. Enter a number for the Dashboard port field. If you are using HTTPS, see the topic about configuring an HTTPS connection.
  5. Enter the name of the user in the User name field.
  6. Enter the password in the Password field.
