TDM Fabric Implementation - Environments Setup

During the execution of a TDM task, data is extracted from a selected source environment and loaded into the selected target environment.

TDM environments must be defined in Fabric. Make sure that you define the TDM environment source and target and connection details of each environment.

Note: You must also define the TDM environments in the TDM GUI. Click here for more information on doing this.

Defining TDM Environments in Fabric

Fabric environments are used to run TDM processes on various environments by switching between them according to the task's environments. The connection details of each environment's data sources are taken from the Fabric environment's data.

Example: Running a TDM task to copy selected entities from the Production environment to the UAT environment.

Fabric must extract the source data from Production and load it to UAT. Each environment can have different connection details for its data sources.

The TDM execution process sets the active environment as follows:

  1. Set the active environment to Production before synchronizing the entity from the data source.

  2. Set the active environment to UAT before loading the entity to the target.

    To save a separate Logical Unit Instance (LUI) for each source environment, the TDM concatenates the source environment to each LUI.

The TDM implementation must include the creation and deployment of all the TDM environments with their connection details to enable the execution of the TDM tasks.

Notes:

  • Every change of a Global or an Interface in the project requires a redeployment of the environments to Fabric to be aligned with the updated project's Interfaces and Globals.
  • It is important to set the TDM_APIDOC_JSON local file system interface as disabled in the Environments to avoid an error when running the test connection on the task's environment (Fabric server has a different IP address than the local windows machine and cannot connect window's directory)
