Configuring Territories

OS: WindowsOS

Platform: webMethods 6.1

Territories: An integration platform can contain multiple Brokers that operate in groups called Territories


In the above example if a document is published by a client say client 1 it is published in Broker A and that published document is also available in the remaining three brokers B, C and D which are placed inside a territory. 

Rules Concerning Territories 


Ø A Broker that is not part of a territory does not have knowledge of any other Broker.

Ø Brokers within a territory have knowledge only of the other Brokers currently in the same territory.

Ø Once a Broker leaves a territory, it loses knowledge of all other Brokers in the territory.

Ø A Broker can be a member of only one territory at a time. To change from one territory to another, a Broker must leave the first territory and then join the second.

Ø Two or more Brokers on the same host can be members of different territories.

Ø Operations on document types and client groups affect all Brokers in the territory. 


Ø All Brokers in a territory share the same client groups and document types. In effect, they appear to operate under a single configuration.

Ø A territory cannot be empty. To create one, you must find a Broker that does not belong to any other territory.
