Pinned topic Why Alphablox home -> Administration tab -> Cubes tab is missing.

‏2010-12-07T16:50:42Z |
Hi,

I am trying to test my ISW installation and I have an issue with Alphablox:
I have installed Alphablox with ISW and I try to do the tutorials but, when I log into
Alphablox home page as administrator,under ADMINISTRATION menu option the "CUBES" tab is missing, Only "General","Groups", "Users", "Applications", "Data Sources" tabs are in the menu.

I'll really appreciated any help.

Thank you.

      You don't use the "Cubes" tab with Alphablox in order to access Cubing Services. You create a data source that points to the host on which your cube server is running and specify the cube server's port. Then you specify that data source in the appropriate blox.

    Thanks Warren,

    I am newbie on this and I am fallowing the tutorials, that why I ask.
    I install a couple of times the software I thought I missed something.

    I am not sure whether this option (ADMINISTRATION -> "Cubes") is not part of Alphablox 9.5.7.2.

    Thanks any way for your input.

      The Alphablox cube tabs is for the creation of Alphablox cubes (embedded cubing engine). Starting ISW v9.5.0 we intentionally removed that tab so that it is not confusing to customers using Cubing Services, since as Warren mentioned, Cubing Services cubes are managed in ISW Admin Console - not Alphablox.

    Thanks both of you for the explanation.

    Now I can understand, but IBM should update the documentation and tutorials also.

    Thank you much, it was really helpful your comments.

    I have created the Cubing Services throughout ISW Administration Console, and use it creating a Data Source in Alphablox Admin successfully.

    Thanks again.
