-The provisioning agent is part of the TM1 Application Portal (PMPSVC). When a user installs/opens Performance Modeler or Cognos Insight using the icons from within the PMPSVC portal - a version check occurs. During this check, if the server contains an updated version of the Performance Modeler or Cognos Insight client - users will automatically receive the updates.

-This updater specifically updates the Provisioning Agent on the TM1 Application Portal to ensure that users who launch Performance Modeler or Cognos Insight obtain the new certificates automatically.

-If your TM1 Application Server (PMPSVC) web application is hosted on a different application server than the bundled Tomcat Application server, you will need to recreate your PMPSVC WAR file, and redeploy it to your application server.

-If your TM1 Application Server (PMPSVC) web application uses a different JRE than what is provided by default, ensure that you update the RunSSLProvInst.bat file to point to your JRE path.

  5. Open Windows Command Prompt as an Administrator, and navigate to <tm1_install_dir>\tm1_64\
  6. Execute the following command to update the Provisioning Agent:
    • RunSSLProvInst.bat

      You may also run the application in Test Mode (the script will run however changes will not be made). To run the application in Test Mode use RunSSLProvInst.bat -t
After the above steps have been followed, users who launch IBM Cognos TM1 Performance Modeler / Cognos Insight from the TM1 Application Portal will automatically receive the new SSL Certificates.
