Installing the ManyWho Database service

Your Boomi Flow tenant comes with the ManyWho Database service already installed. However, if you want to use the service in a subtenant, the service needs to be manually added.

The fastest and easiest way to accomplish this, is to create a flow in the tenant, import the database service, import the flow to the subtenant, and update the service once it is imported.

Let’s look at the steps:

  1. Click LOG IN to login to the Boomi Flow Drawing Tool.
  2. Create a new flow called ManyWho Database Service import using the ManyWho Identity service.
  3. Click Shared Elements.

    This lists the shared elements in the tenant.
  4. Click Services.

    This lists all the services used by the flow. For this particular flow, we have the ManyWho Identity service only.
  5. Click Import Existing.

    This lists all the services available in the tenant.
  6. Click the Import button next to ManyWho Database.

    This imports the ManyWho Database service to the flow.
  7. Click Close.
  8. Click the Publish button to publish the flow.
  9. Click Publish and then click Close.
  10. Click the Home tab.
  11. Click Import/Export.

  12. Select the ManyWho Database Service import flow from the flows listed in the Export section.
  13. Click Download.

    This downloads the JSON file of the flow. Save the file.
  14. Change the tenant to the subtenant where you want to install the Database service.
  15. We are going to be importing the flow in the subtenant now. Click Import/Export.
  16. Click Import and upload the JSON of the flow. This imports the flow to the subtenant, and you can see it in the list of flows.
  17. Click Services. You can see the ManyWho Database service in the list.
  18. Click the pencil icon next to the ManyWho Database service.
  19. The Username and the Password fields are autopopulated. We do not need authentication for the database service. Delete the username and password.
  20. Click Update Service. This updates the service to include all the types associated with it. If we do not update the service, only the types associated with the service in the flow that we imported are available in the tenant.
  21. Click Continue. If you like, you can also update the password, database type, schema, name, ports etc. now. You can also come back and edit/update the service later.
  22. Click Save Service.

    The ManyWho Database service is now installed and available. You can delete the ManyWho Database Service import flow from both the tenant and the subtenant if you like.
