Deploying the Information Store with the Opal services

Create an example deployment that includes the Information Store with the Opal services. After you deploy the Information Store, you can access the data that it contains by using Analyst's Notebook Premium.

Before you begin

Install IBM i2 Analyze, and any software prerequisites. For more information, see Installing IBM i2 Analyze.

About this task

Create an example deployment of i2 Analyze with the Information Store. The i2 Analyze toolkit contains an example configuration for the deployment. The deployExample task generates the default values, provides the JDBC driver, and deploys the platform.

An example deployment demonstrates a working i2 Analyze system. An example user is created so that you can log in.
In an example deployment, i2 Analyze runs with the example security schema and matching WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile security groups and users. The example user has the following credentials:
  • The user name is Jenny
  • The password is Jenny
An example deployment uses the law-enforcement-schema.xml schema as the i2 Analyze schema with the associated law-enforcement-schema-charting-schemes.xml.

Procedure

  1. Create the configuration directory:
    1. Navigate to the \toolkit\examples\information-store directory.

      This directory contains the preconfigured files that you require to deploy a system that uses the Information Store to store data. The data can be accessed using Analyst's Notebook Premium as a rich desktop client.

    2. Copy the configuration directory to the root of the toolkit. For example: C:\IBM\i2analyze\toolkit\configuration.
  2. Specify the credentials:
    1. Using a text editor, open the toolkit\configuration\environment\credentials.properties file.
    2. Enter the user name and password to use with the database.
    3. Enter the user name and password to use with the Solr index.
    4. Enter the password to use to encrypt LTPA tokens.
    5. Save and close the credentials.properties file.
  3. Run the setup script to create the example deployment.
    1. On the i2 Analyze server, open a command prompt and navigate to the toolkit\scripts directory.
    2. To deploy the example, run the following command:
      setup -t deployExample
    3. To start the WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile server, run the following command:
      setup -t startLiberty
    4. Start, or restart, the HTTP server that hosts the reverse proxy.
  4. Optional: To populate your Information Store with the provided example data, run the following command:
    setup -t ingestExampleData

What to do next

For the Opal experience, deploy Analyst's Notebook Premium and connect to your deployment. For more information, see Installing IBM i2 Analyst's Notebook Premium and Connecting Analyst's Notebook Premium to i2 Analyze.

After you test your deployment, configure the deployment to match your requirements. For more information, see Configuring IBM i2 Analyze.
