Creating a New Interface
You will need to download sample files to do this tutorial. If you have not done so yet, please click this LINK.
Note: the Tutorials in eiConsole Foundation, 1-13, are modular and are designed to be used in the sequence presented.
When the Route File Management window opens, the example interface is displayed. The blue icon indicates it is a fully configured interface.
MENU OPTIONS: Select the interface and right click. The drop down menu opens. There are many options available with this menu. You can add, edit or delete a Route, copy one, edit the description and do things like Define Global Transaction Monitors and Stage Listeners. You can also perform search functions export components and rename your route.
Leave the default settings for this Route.
To set up a Working Directory click Browse.
Select the location for your new Working Directory. Choose the eiConsole samples folder. Select the New Folder icon. When the new folder appears, name it “Getting-Started-Project.” Once you name your folder, select it and click Open.
When the Route File Management window opens, you’ll now have an empty grid. To create a new Route (interface), click anywhere in the empty grid and then click Add Route.
When the Add New dialogue opens, enter “Getting-Started-Interface” and click OK.
When the Route File Management Window opens, my Getting-Started-Interface Route appears in the grid. It has a red icon next to it, indicating that it is an uncompleted interface. To start configuring the Interface, select anywhere in the interface row and double click.
The Main Route Grid for this interface will open.
The Main Route Grid is where you define any Sources and Targets required for a particular interface. You can define as many source and target systems as you like. For this interface, one Source and one Target system are defined by default.
The Main Route Grid is complete. To build an interface with the eiConsole you will move from left to right across your screen configuring each one of the 7 stages. Each stage represents a point in the logical flow of data from the Source System to the Target System. Every interface you configure in the eiConsole follows this same Assembly Line process.
The next step is to configure the Source System stage.
