QMS Architecture

HPE QMS uses the Autonomy Content Infrastructure (ACI) Client API to communicate with custom applications that retrieve data by using HTTP commands. HPE QMS communicates over HTTP by using XML, and can adhere to SOAP.

HPE Query Manipulation Server architecture

When you use HPE QMS, you send queries to HPE QMS rather than directly to IDOL Server. HPE QMS forwards the queries to IDOL Server and the Promotion Agentstore component, which contains the HPE QMS rules.

The Promotion Agentstore returns any rules that apply to the current query. HPE QMS can then perform one of the following actions:

HPE QMS can do either, both, or none of these actions depending on the configuration and the particular query. You can also query for promotions.

HPE QMS can accept HTTP requests sent from a Web browser.
