PeopleSoft Integration Broker setup for Test Framework – Part III

Earlier posts dealt with making sure the default local node was set up correctly and some basics on Quick Configuration.  In this post I’m going to talk about the Anonymous Node.

The Anonymous Node is used by Integration Broker.  You should have the following settings at a minimum:

On the Node Definition Tab – Node Type: External; Authentication Open: None; Default User ID: here the ID needs to have access to the PeopleTools roles as well as the PTF roles.  I’ll be covering security in later posts.  Active Tab should be selected as well as Segment Aware.

Connectors Tab – Leave the Gateway ID set to Local, you don’t need a Connector ID.  I have my Delivery Mode set to Guaranteed.  Don’t bother pinging – it should fail.

Portal Tab – I usually set mine up the same as the Default Local Node.

WS Security Tab – the Authentication Token Type needs to be None.

Routings Tab.  Here we run into the real meat of setting up the Anonymous Node for PTF.  I make sure the following routings and service operations are set up for the node:

  • GENCOMPONENTURL_RT, uses the GENCOMPONENTURL_SO Service Operation
  • PT_SOAPTESTER_ROUTE, uses the PT_SOAPTESTER Service Operation
  • PTTST_CONFIG, uses the PTTST_CONFIG Service Operation

On all three of these the following properties should be seen on the page:

  • OType – Synch
  • Sender Node – ANONYMOUS
  • Receiver Node – Your Current Correctly Configured Default Local Node
  • Direction – Inbound
  • Status – Active

The Receiver Node will be the tip off if you are having problems – most especially with a database that has been created from a refresh from production.  If there is anything else in the Receiver Node column outside of the default local node the Anonymous Node isn’t set up correctly, and PTF will fail.

You can try to inactivate a bad routing and or service operation and then recreate them – however what I’ve found is go thru the process of renaming the default local node.  I cover that in Part I of this PTF setup.
