Service Wizard: Configure Data Records

Complete each field on this form, then click Next.

New Service Package

This section displays if you selected Configure a new service package or Copy an existing service package on the Select Service Resources form.

Field Description
Service Package Name Enter a unique name for the new service package. This name acts as the key for the service package record. The wizard suggests a name that you can modify. Validation prevents selecting a name that matches the name of an existing service package.
Processing mode Select a processing mode for the package:
  • Stateful
  • Stateless

The effect that these processing modes have differs depending upon the type of service that you are creating. For complete information about processing modes, see the documentation for your service type, located in the Integration section of Pega Community.

Service access group Select an access group to use for looking up service rules at runtime.
Requires authentication Select this check box if the service needs to authenticate the service client at runtime.
Authentication type This field only displays when Requires Authentication is selected.

Select an authentication type:

  • Basic
  • Custom
Use TLS/SSL (REST only) This field only displays when Requires Authentication is selected and you are using Basic authentication.

Select the check box to use TLS/SSL authentication.

Authentication service This field only displays when Requires Authentication is selected and you are using Custom authentication. This field is only required for LDAP authentication.

Select an authentication service (a Data-Admin-AuthService instance) when the service type is SOAP ( Rule-Service-SOAP ) or HTTP ( Rule-Service-HTTP ).

Suppress Show-HTML Select the check box to suppress Show-HTML.

Requestor Pooling

Field Description
Maximum idle requestors Enter the maximum number of idle requestors allowed.
Maximum active requestors Enter the maximum number of active requestors allowed.
Maximum wait (in seconds) Enter the maximum wait time for requestors in seconds.

New Service Listener

This section displays if your service type requires a listener and you also selected Configure a new service listener on the Select Service Resources form. It contains the required fields for the service to be valid.

Field Description
Listener Type Read-only. Displays the listener type.
Listener Name This form displays for services of the type File, JMS, and MQ.

Enter a unique name for the service listener. This name acts as the key for the service listener data instance. The wizard suggests a name that you can modify. Validation prevents selecting a name that matches the name of an existing service listener.

Source Location (File only) Enter the source location for your file listener. The Pega Platform node running this listener requires read and write access to the directory.
Source Name Mask (File only) Enter a string to use as the filter that identifies the files to be processed. For example, if you enter*.txt, the file listener processes all files with a .txt extension. If you enter*.*, the file listener processes all files in the source directory.
Container-managed transaction (JMS only) If this is an MDB listener, select this check box if you want the transaction to be container managed.

If this is not an MDB listener, select this check box only for the condition described in the Pega Community article Using MQ and JMS services with Enterprise Application deployment.

Messaging Model (JMS only) Select the messaging model that the listener uses:
  • Point-to-Point
  • Publish and Subscribe
Resource Name Resolution (JMS only) Read-only. Indicates whether you are using a JNDI server data object (direct JNDI lookup) or resource references to locate the JMS resources (connection factory and destination).
Connection Factory (JMS, listener not MDB) Enter the name of the JMS connection factory to use to connect to the JMS provider.
Request Destination (JMS, listener not MDB) If you selected Point to Point as the messaging model, enter the name of the JMS queue that the listener will listen for. If you selected Publish and Subscribe as the messaging model, enter the name of the JMS topic that the listener will listen for.
Response Destination (JMS, listener not MDB) If you selected Point to Point as the messaging model and the listener will send responses, enter the name of the JMS queue that the listener will respond to. If you selected Publish and Subscribe, enter the name of the JMS topic that the listener will respond to.
Destination Name (JMS, with MDB listener) If you selected Point to Point as the messaging model, enter the name of the JMS queue that the listener will listen for. If you selected Publish and Subscribe as the messaging model, enter the name of the JMS topic that the listener will listen for.
Response Connection Factory (JMS, with MDB listener) If the listener sends responses, enter the name of the JMS connection factory to use for the reply connection.
Response Destination Name (JMS, with MDB listener) If you selected Point to Point as the messaging model and the listener will send responses, enter the name of the JMS queue that the listener will respond to. If you selected Publish and Subscribe, enter the name of the JMS topic that the listener will respond to.
Queue Name (MQ only) Specify the name of the WebSphere MQ queue that the listener listens to.
Queue Manager (MQ only) Specify the name of the WebSphere MQ manager that maintains the queue. By leaving this field blank, you indicate that the default queue manager maintains the queue.
New Data Source This section displays if your service type is MQ and you selected Configure a new service listener on the Select Service Resources form, or, if your service type is JMS, you selected Configure a new service listener and you selected Direct JNDI Lookup in the Resource Name Resolution field on the Select Service Purpose form.

(JMS only)

Optional. Specify the credentials of the principal for authenticating the caller to the service. The value you enter depends on the authentication scheme. It can be a hashed password, clear-text password, key, certificate, and so on. If you leave this field blank, the service provider determines the behavior.
Host Name (MQ only) Enter the host name of your MQ server.
Port Number (MQ only) Enter the port number of your MQ server.
