Create path services

Before you begin

A path service is persistent map that can be used to store the mapping of a group of messages to a messaging resource, such as a member of a distributed destination or a store-and-forward agent. It provides a way to enforce message ordering by pinning messages to a member of a cluster hosting servlets, distributed queue members, or store-and-forward agents.

To create a path service:

  1. If you have not already done so, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Lock & Edit (see Use the Change Center).
  2. In the left pane of the console, expand Services > Messaging and select Path Services.
  3. On the Summary of Path Services page, click New.

    Note: Once you create a path service, you cannot rename it. Instead, you must delete it and create another one that uses the new name.

  4. On the Create a New Path Service page:
    1. Name -- Name for the path service.
    2. Scope -- Specifies if the path service is accessible within the domain, a partition, or a resource group template. Resource Group and Resource Group Template scoped Path Services inherit their target from the associated Virtual Target.
    3. Click Next.
  5. On the Select Persistent Store page, select a custom persistent store if you want a dedicated store for the path service or click Create a New Store to configure a new custom store. If the path service targets a cluster, you must specify a custom store with the same target, a migration policy of Always, and a distribution policy of Singleton. For more information about configuring stores, see Configure custom persistent stores.
  6. For a path service with a Global scope, select the cluster, cluster member or migratable target where you want to deploy the path service.
  7. Click Finish.
  8. To activate these changes, in the Change Center of the Administration Console, click Activate Changes.
    Not all changes take effect immediately—some require a restart (see Use the Change Center).
