Configuring an OMAG Server

An OMAG Server is a configured set of services and connectors that support the integration of a particular type of technology.

There are different types of OMAG Server for each type of technology. Each are configured separately and then linked together to form a connected ecosystem.

Figure 1 shows the different types of OMAG Servers. The hierarchy in the diagram groups these servers according to their role in the ecosystem.

The configuration document for the OMAG Server determines which OMAG subsystems (and hence the types of open metadata and governance services) that should be activated in the OMAG Server. For example:

Each of the configuration commands builds up sections in the configuration document. This document is stored in the configuration file after each configuration request so it is immediately available for use each time the open metadata services are activated in the OMAG Server.

In the descriptions of the configuration commands, there are placeholders for the specific configuration values. They are names of the value in double curly braces. For example:

Below are the commands to

Querying the contents of a configuration document

It is possible to query the configuration document for a specific OMAG server using the following command.

GET {serverURLRoot}/open-metadata/admin-services/users/{adminUserId}/servers/{serverName}/configuration

It is also possible to query the origin of the server supporting the open metadata services. For the Egeria OMAG Server Platform, the response is “ODPi Egeria OMAG Server Platform (version 1.7-SNAPSHOT)”.

GET {serverURLRoot}/open-metadata/platform-services/users/{adminUserId}/servers/{serverName}/server-platform-origin
