This video presents how for example you can leverage the IICS Asset Management CLI (version 2) utility to integrate your Informatica Intelligent Cloud Services development environment. Continuous Integration (CI) is a development practice where developers integrate code into a shared repository frequently, preferably several times a day. Each integration can then be verified by an automated build and automated tests.


This video and sample shows how you can export and extract to source control (Git in this example) for performing automated backups of versions, a CI activity. The same techniques can be used to package deployments to test and pre-production environments also.


The video demonstrates this using IICS Asset Management CLI (version 2) made available via the Informatica Cloud Application Integration community under Tools category, along with Jenkins Pipeline. This utility is broadly applicable to all IICS services.



To fulfill your API-first strategy you need to integrate on premises data and applications with Cloud and other on-premises applications, data sources and services.


Did you know that the Cloud Application Integration Service can connect these systems in real time using APIs? Did you also know that you can implement and host business services and microservices and expose these to your applications and partners in the Cloud and on premises?


The Cloud Application Integration Service helps you in the following ways:

App Integration

  • Integrate in real time applications using orchestration, APIs and messaging to propagate data from one data source to another
  • Supplement bulk data set processing with interactive API-based data propagation


API Implementation and Management

  • Create business, composite and data services
  • Expose business services as REST, SOAP or OData APIs to applications, lines of businesses and partners
  • Make APIs discoverable
  • Monitor business services
  • Manage and control API usage
  • Improve business, composite and data services


Process Integration and Automation

  • Implement and run business process applications
  • Externalize process logic and business rules outside of application code
  • Support business processes that span applications on premises and in Cloud
  • Provide users with automated guided workflows with contextual and interactive access to data
