ADS service name

Hello,

We had an incident with a client recently about an ADS service name.

And we have now a question : what are all possible values for a service name ?
Is there some special characters allowed ?

Basically what is the technical type that is used to store the service name ?

Thanks,

Hello @hgardon

Could you please let me know what incident and the service name that encounter the problem is?

I checked the ETA RDM Usage guide, it said only the name must be ASCII String as follows:

Then I did a quick test with the ADS's appServiceName configuration to test various combinations.

! *ads*"${route}".route*"${svc}"*appServiceName : ${svc}
!#help
!    appServiceName: <service>
!
!    The appServiceName parameter specifies the service name as published
!    by the upstream component at the host site.  For example, take the
!    following setting:
!
!    *ads*hostrssl.route*CASCADE_SIAC*appServiceName : DF_SIAC
!
!    Here, CASCADE_SIAC will be the name advertised to all connected sink
!    applications. The name CASCADE_SIAC will need to be specified in the
!    serviceList and all service specific configuration will use the
!    CASCADE_SIAC name.
!
!    The name "DF_SIAC" is the name published by the upstream component. In
!    most cases,  this is the realname of the service whereas CASCADE_SIAC
!    is the alias. When using appServiceName, the real service name will not
!    be referenced in the config except as the value of the appServiceName
!    parameter setting.
!
!    Default value: <empty>
!#end

The test results are as follows:

  • *ads*cloud.route*#_DD*appServiceName : ELEKTRON_DD --> service name #_DD works fine, and the API (EMA) can connect and consume data.
  • *ads*cloud.route*testService*appServiceName : ELEKTRON_DD --> service name testService works fine and the API (EMA) can connect and consume data.
  • *ads*cloud.route*1_service*appServiceName : ELEKTRON_DD --> service name 1_service works fine, and the API (EMA) can connect and consume data.
  • *ads*cloud.route**_DD*appServiceName : ELEKTRON_DD --> service name *_DD does not work, the adsmon tool does not show this service.

Since the RTDS is the one that control the service name. I checked the ADS document. I cannot find any information about the Service Name's possible values and special characters.

I strongly suggest you contact the RTDS team directly via https://my.refinitiv.com/content/mytr/en/helpandsupport.html website to help you with this RTDS question.
