Configuring an InterSystems IRIS System and Creating a Namespace

This topic provides information on configuring InterSystems IRIS® data platform so that you can use it as an ESB or with pass-through REST and SOAP services and operations. It contains the following sections:

This topic briefly discusses how to configure your system so that you can use HTTP and SOAP services through the Web port. This information is intended to help you set up a development or test system for these services. Complete information about these topics is provided in the documentation. See Configuring System-Wide Settings for more details.

To set up a development or test system for HTTP or SOAP services, follow these steps:

  1. If you have installed InterSystems IRIS in a locked down installation, %Services_Bindings service access is disabled. Open the Management Portal and enable it:

    1. Start the Management Portal from the InterSystems IRIS launcher. You will have to use your Windows login username rather than _system to access the portal. Enter the password that you specified during installation.

    2. Select System Administration > Security > Services to get to the Services portal page.

    3. The %Services_Bindings service is disabled by default. Click the service name and check the Service Enabled check box and save the setting.

  2. If you are not using an existing namespace, create a new namespace:

    1. Select System Administration > Configuration > System Configuration > Namespaces to get to the Namespaces portal page.

    2. Click Create New Namespace, specify a name for the namespace, such as SERVICESNS.

    3. Click Create New Database for the globals database.

    4. In the Database Wizard, enter a name for the globals database, such as SERVICES_GDB. The wizard uses the name to create a directory for the database.

    5. Click the Next button twice to get to the Database Resource form. Click Create a new resource. The wizard displays a Create New Resource form. Accept the suggested name, such as %DB_SERVICES_GDB and ensure that Public Permissions Read and Write check boxes are not checked. Click Save on the Database Resource form and click Finish on the Database Wizard form.

    6. Repeat steps c through e for the routines database.

    7. Click Save to complete creating the namespace.

    8. Select Close to close the log.

This completes the system configuration.
