MicroStrategy ONE

Set the Community Connectors Application URL

Before deploying connectors through MicroStrategy Community Data Connectors, set the MicroStrategy Community Data Connectors application URL in MicroStrategy Web.

If you are using a MicroStrategy Cloud Intelligence (MCI) environment, we encourage you to use MicroStrategy Workstation and provide the MicroStrategyLibrary Server URL in your welcome email. The Community Connectors Application URL is based on each individual environment by default, so there’s no need manually enter it.

Administrator privileges are required.

You must have your Community Connectors war file deployed in your environment.


  1. Open MicroStrategy Developer.
  2. Go to Project Configuration > Governing Rules > Default > Import Data.
  3. Select the Enable URL file upload via checkbox.

    To access the connectors, the Enable URL file upload via checkbox must be selected.

    Community Connectors only support connections with SSL due to security reasons. To enable the web server's HTTPS setting, refer to Configure Web, Mobile Server. and Web Services to Require SSL Access.

Set the Application URL

  1. In MicroStrategy Web, click the username drop-down and select Preferences.

  2. Under Preferences Level, click Project Defaults.
  3. Enter your MicroStrategy Community Data Connectors application URL in Link to Community Connectors.

    The URL format: https://[HOST_NAME]:[PORT_NUMBER]/CommunityConnectors/

    • The HOST_NAME is the host name of the machine you have the Community Connectors application installed on.
    • The PORT_NUMBER is the port number that your web server listens to. Use only if required.

    If the admin resets the link to Community Connectors and redeploys Community Connectors, you must log out of the web session and log in again.

  4. Click Apply.
  5. Return to the MicroStrategy Web home page.
  6. Click Create > Add External Data.
  7. In the Community Extension section, click Deploy Community Connectors. The Setup page appears.

On the Setup page, you can configure each connector, deploy each connector to MicroStrategy Web, or download .mstrcc files of each connector to deploy in MicroStrategy Workstation.
