This topic shows you how to create a basic inbound integration port for a service. Use a basic port to test the operation of a custom service that does not require any data processing or exposure to the Internet.

To create a basic inbound port

  1. Open the Application Object Tree (AOT).

  2. Right-click the Service Groups node, and then click New Service Group.

  3. Right-click the new service group, and then click Properties. Set the Name property to TestBasicPortServiceGroup. Click Save.

  4. Right-click TestBasicPortServiceGroup, and then click Open New Window. Drag one of the custom services from the Services node onto TestBasicPortServiceGroup.

  5. Right-click TestBasicPortServiceGroup, and then click Save.

  6. Right-click TestBasicPortServiceGroup, and then click Deploy Service Group.

    After the service group is successfully deployed, a confirmation message appears in the Infolog. When you open the Inbound ports form, the TestBasicPortServiceGroup port appears in the Port Names list as a port of the Basic type.

  7. To view the basic port you have created, open the Inbound ports form. Click System administration > Setup > Services and Application Integration Framework > Inbound ports. The TestBasicPortServiceGroup port appears in the Port Names list as a port of the Basic type.

    TipTip

    To start this service every time that the AOS is restarted, set the AutoDeploy property for the service group to Yes.
