The Hive Data page captures the following general information about a hive.




Domain Id

  • A unique id for the domain in which this hive resides.
  • This ID is encrypted when it is saved and stored in the database.


Help URL

  • A link to an external website that may contain additional information on using the i2b2 in your environment.
  • This link is only used in the i2b2 Workbench and is not available from within the i2b2 Webclient. (in the workbench heading there is a button labeled i2b2; clicking on this button will launch the website entered at this field.)


Domain Name

  • The name of the domain in which this hive resides.
  • This is the same name that is entered in your Web Client and Admin config files as well as the Workbench properties file.



  • The type of environment this hive resides. The options are:
    • Development
    • Production
    • Test



The hive is created when you are installing the i2b2 server. You cannot add or remove a hive from within i2b2 Admin; however you can edit the hive's data.
