Deploy Community Connectors War File

To use the connector, you must have the CommunityConnector.war file deployed in your environment.

If you are using a MicroStrategy Cloud Intelligence (MCI) environment, Community Connectors are already set up, so there is no need to follow this procedure.

To deploy your .war file, perform the following steps:

In Windows

  1. Install the MicroStrategy Community Data Connectors component during installation. The component will be installed in C:\Program Files (x86)\MicroStrategy\CommunityConnectors.
  2. Open the CommunityConnectors folder and copy the CommunityConnectors.war file.
  3. Open the Tomcat installation folder. In the webapps folder, paste the .war file.

    For example, you would paste the .war file in the following location: Program Files (x86)\Common Files\MicroStrategy\Tomcat\apache-tomcat-9.0.22\webapps.

  4. Restart the Web Server to deploy the connector.

Confirm your .war file is deployed by opening the following link: https://<yourservername>:<portnumber>/CommunityConnectors/<ConnectorName>

For example: https://<yourservername>:<portnumber>/CommunityConnectors/fitbit

In Linux

  1. Install the MicroStrategy Community Data Connectors component during installation. The component will be installed in <Install_Path>/CommunityConnectors.
  2. Open the CommunityConnectors folder and copy the CommunityConnectors.war file.
  3. Open the Tomcat installation folder. In the webbapps folder, paste the .war file.

    For example, you would paste the .war file in the following location: <Tomcat-Home>/webapps.

  4. Restart Tomcat to deploy the war file.

Confirm your .war file is deployed by opening the following link: https://<yourservername>:<portnumber>/CommunityConnectors/<ConnectorName>

For example: https://<yourservername>:<portnumber>/CommunityConnectors/fitbit
