Connection Profile View

Before you can define a job, you need to create a connection profile in the Configuration domain, which enables you to connect to the required service.

A connection profile contains the connection parameters to a specified service, such as host name, port, user name, and password. When adding a connection profile, you enable users to connect to the required specified service with only the connection profile name. Users then can run a job without having to provide authentication details every time they connect to the service.

When adding a parameter in the Command Line, Web Services, or REST API in the Execution operation the following fields automatically appear in the Connection Profile:

  • Command Line:

    • Run As: Defines the user under which the jobs for the connection profile are to be run, which appears as AI_RUNAS.

  • Web Service:

    • WebServiceHost: Defines the name of the web services server.

    • Web Service Port: Defines the web services server port.

    • WebServiceUserName: Defines the name of the user.

    • WebServicePassword: Defines the password for the web service.


    • RESTHost: Defines the name of the REST API application host.

    • RESTport: Defines the REST API application port.

    • RESTUserName: Defines the user name for REST API.

    • RESTPassword: Defines the password for the User's password for REST API.

These parameters are added for your convenience but can be deleted if you do not need them. However if you delete them, they do not return automatically (in case you want to restore them). The Connection Profile for the Job Type is disabled.

The following procedures describe how to add, edit and delete a connection profile field:
