What to do next

  • If you use the default database and user registry, run the Express setup wizard which is a simplified version of the wizard.
  • If you use an enterprise database, LDAP user registries, or if you want to deploy the applications in a distributed topology, run the Custom setup wizard. This setup option is recommended for production environments.
  • Visualizing global configurations or model information from Rational Rhapsody® Design Management is in technology preview. It is not for production use. To learn about the limitations of the technology preview feature, read this article. To enable the technology preview, go to the Report Builder Data sources page at https://server:port/rs/endpoint, and click the link to read and accept the license agreement. You can use DM custom artifact elements to create views even without enabling the preview.
