Microservices are designed to start up very quickly, perform a specific task, and then shut down. The Micro Integrator profile (MI profile) of WSO2 Enterprise Integrator (WSO2 EI) is designed in a highly container-friendly manner to be used , and thereby, it is ideal for you to use it for Microservices Architecture (MSA)-based solutions that , which are deployed in container-based environments. Microservices are designed to start up very quickly, perform a specific task, and then shut down. Because its start-up time is faster than the ESB profile, the Micro Integrator profile allows you to perform advanced integration scenarios without sacrificing the speed required for a container-based deployment architecture. 


For instructions, see Starting the Micro Integrator profile.


By default, the Micro Integrator profile runs with a port offset of 10, which means that the default HTTP listener port is 8290 and the default HTTPS listener port is 8253.

Deploying artifacts in the Micro Integrator profile


The H2 database-based registry is not available in the Micro Integrator profile. Instead, it has a file system - based registry, which provides the same functionality. Thus, by default, the <EI_HOME>/wso2/micro-integrator/registry directory will act as the registry to store registry artifacts etc. This main registry directory will consist of the following sub-registry directories.


These sub-registry directories will be created automatically when you deploy registry artifacts. If you did not deploy any registry artifacts, you can create them manually.

  • Local: To store local artifacts of the product server that are not shared with the other products in the deployment.
  • Config: To store all product-specific artifacts that are shared between similar product instances.
  • Governance: To store all artifacts that are relevant to the governance of the product.
