Defining TrueSight Orchestration web services

The AR System Orchestrator Configuration form allows you to define the list of TrueSight Orchestration web services available. Each entry in the form represents the configuration information for a TrueSight Orchestration service and contains all the information required to connect to that service.

The configuration settings that you enter in this form are used when you design the associated filter or escalation. All information required at runtime is stored in the filter or escalation.

To define the TrueSight Orchestration web service for  AR System  

  1. Log in to  AR System as a user with administrator privileges.
  2. On the home page, select AR System Administration Console > System > General > Orchestrator Configuration.
  3. On the AR System Orchestrator Configuration form, complete the following fields:

    FieldRequired?Description
    Configuration NameYes

    A unique name that identifies this entry. The name must be unique, and  AR System  assigns a GUID to the field.
    When you create the associated filter or escalation,  Developer Studio  uses this field to display a list of all the entries in this form.

    Grid nameYes

    The grid name for the web service.
    When you create the associated filter or escalation,  Developer Studio  uses the value in this field along with the service URL to obtain the list of TrueSight Orchestration processes.  Developer Studio  stores the grid name within the workflow action for use when the service is consumed.

    DescriptionNoA description of this web service.
    Service URLYes

    The URL for the web service on the TrueSight Orchestration server, in the format http://serverName:port/orchContextPath/orchEndPoint. Obtain the TrueSight Orchestration context path and end point from the TrueSight Orchestration administrator. When you create the associated workflow,  Developer Studio  uses the value in this field along with the grid name to obtain the list of processes for the service. It also stores the Service URL in the workflow action for use when the service is consumed.

    UsernameYesThe user name to use when connecting to the web service.
    PasswordYes

    The password to use when connecting to the web service.

    Developer Studio  uses this user name and password at design time to connect to the web service and obtain data about the service. It also stores this user name and password in the workflow action for use when the service is consumed.

    To override the design-time user name and password with the correct user name and password at run time, use the Input Mapping table in the filter or escalation to map these elements to fields in the associated form. See To define the filter or escalation.

    The following figure shows an example of a completed entry in the AR System Orchestrator Configuration form.
