Approval Process Registry Installation  Locate

Oracle Service Registry allows for installation with an approval publishing process which requires two registries: a publication registry and a discovery registry. The publication registry is used for testing and verification of data. The discovery registry contains approved data that has been promoted from the publication registry.

Oracle Service Registry supports the following scenarios of approval process configuration:

We recommend that you install the discovery registry first, and then the publication registry, because the digital security certificate of the discovery registry is needed when installing the publication registry.

[Important]Important

To install the publication or discovery registry with accounts in external storage you must ensure that accounts from the publication registry are a subset of accounts on the discovery registry. Accounts may exist on the discovery registry that do not exist on the publication registry, but all accounts on the publication registry must exist on the discovery registry. Put another way: all accounts on the publication registry exist on the discovery registry, but not all accounts on discovery registry exist on the publication registry.

It is also not allowed to have two different LDAP servers, one for the publication registry and one for discovery registry. For more information about setting of external accounts, see the External Accounts Integration chapter in the Installation Guide.

To learn more about the approval process, see the Approval Process chapter in the Administrator' Guide.

Discovery Registry Installation  Locate

To install the discovery registry, install it as described in Installation. At installation, during installation type selection, choose Discovery instead of the default Standalone installation.

Fill in all properties on the discovery-specific panel shown in Figure 25

Figure 25. Discovery Settings

Discovery Settings

Set the following properties:

Publication Registry IP address

The IP address allowed to connect to this discovery registry .

Netmask

A netmask is a 32-bit mask used to divide an IP address into subnets and specify the network's available hosts.

The default netmask of 255.255.255.255 indicates that publication registry may be connected only from the IP address specified in Publication Registry IP address

Continue with standalone installation as described in Setup Administrator Account.

Publication Registry Installation  Locate

[Important]Important

To install the publication registry you must have an installed discovery registry as described in Discovery Registry Installation.

Install the publication registry in same way you would the Standalone registry as described in Installation. During installation selection, choose Publication instead of the default Standalone installation.

Fill in the properties shown below:

Discovery Registry URL

Enter the HTTPS URL (including port) of the discovery registry. Note that HTTP (nonsecure) connections between the publication and discovery registry are not allowed.

[Caution]Caution

You need to enter the URL including the application context, where the discovery registry was deployed, so for example

https://oracleas.mycomp.com:4443/reg_discovery

Provide the Discovery Registry Certificate

You can choose a method which will be used to get certificate. The certificate can be either provided in file or downloaded from running server.

Following screen appears for the certificate from file option:

Discovery Registry Certificate

Enter or browse for the fully qualified path of the discovery registry's SSL certificate file.

[Note]Note

The SSL certificate must be obtained from the Oracle WebLogic Server, where the discovery registry is deployed. For information how to export SSL certificate from an Oracle WebLogic Server, please refer to your Oracle WebLogic Server documentation.

The installer must be able to read this certificate from a local or networked file system, in order to proceed with the installation.

Following screen appears for the download certificate option after the certificate is successfully downloaded:

Continue with standalone installation as described in Setup Administrator Account.

Intermediate Registry Installation  Locate

Install the publication registry in same way you would the Standalone registry as described in Installation. During installation selection, choose Intermediate instead of the default Standalone installation.

The Intermediate Registry role is to serve as both Discovery and Publication Registry combined therefore installer asks for the same options as in Discovery and Publication installations.

Continue with standalone installation as described in Setup Administrator Account.
