Data Service / Data Discovery as external service

TARGIT 2022 Spring

Data Discovery can be set up to run as an external service.

This is only relevant if Data Discovery is supposed to run on in a domain different from the TARGIT server's domain. If you install Data Discovery on the same server as the TARGIT server, or on a server in the same domain as the TARGIT server, you don't need to run Data Discovery as an external service.


TARGIT Server settings

On the TARGIT server, you can start the Management client and go to Service accounts to right click and add a Data Discovery Service account:


The account will auto-generate a number os security keys as well as a Connection string. You will need this connection string when you afterwards install Data Discovery on a remote (external) server.
