MDM Web Application Reference

This section provides a detailed description of configuration files for MDM Web App.

MDM Web App has several key areas that need to be configured. All configuration files mentioned here or in related articles are located in the build and can be renamed as needed.

  • MDM Server - MDM server is the Server Reference Guide using MDM and MDM web App specific components. In particular, MDM Web App Backend Component is required.

    JMS Provider Component is required selecting JMS resources available to the server and loggers for those resources.

    The default file is Files/etc/mdm.serverConfig of the MDM project.

  • MDM Web App configuration file - The main configuration file is Files/etc/mda-config.xml. It contains references to other configuration files, search and other settings. See MDM Web App Backend.

  • MDM Web App application properties - The mdm\etc\ file is where the following parameters are defined: the server port, authentication properties, logging, and monitoring endpoints. See MDM Web App Application Properties.

  • Workflows and permissions - Workflows are configured in a generated Files/etc/mda-permissions.xml file, which contains the definition of roles. See MDM Web App Permissions.

  • Validations - Validations are configured in the the Files/etc/mda-validations.gen.xml file, which contains the mappings of explanation codes to the MDM master data entity or column.

    Additionally, Files/etc/ in mda-validations.xml is used to translate technical explanation codes to human-readable messages. See MDM Web App Validations.

  • Runtime configuration - The runtime configuration defines the available resources such as database and JMS connections. The default file is Files/etc/mdm.runtimeConfig in the MDM project. See MDM Web App Runtime Configuration.
