Configure the Workplace Cell for Installation

As stated in the previous section, there are a number of files in the edu.harvard.i2b2.workplace directory that will need to be edited to reflect the appropriate configuration at your site. The following outlines the steps that need to be taken during the configuration stage of the installation.

Step 1:   Change your working directory

Step 2:   Configure the build properties

Step 3:   Configure the Workplace Application Directory properties

Step 4:   Workplace properties: Set location of Hivedata tables

Step 5:   Workplace properties: Configure PM Cell Properties

Step 6:   Configure the data sources

The configuration files you will be editing are delivered with examples. In some instances these files may contain multiple examples for the three different database management systems supported by the i2b2.


The steps in this section are based on the following assumptions

Linux: your user has the appropriate administrative access to the opt directory.

Windows: You are logged into the Windows Command Prompt as an Administrator.

If you do not have the appropriate access you will have problems running the scripts.

Step 1: Change working directory

The first step in the cell configuration process is to change your working directory to the location of your edu.harvard.i2b2.workplace folder.

CD YOUR_I2B2_SRC_DIR\edu.harvard.i2b2.workplace


Linux Command:  CD /opt/i2b2/edu.harvard.i2b2.workplace

Windows Command:  CD C:\opt\i2b2\edu.harvard.i2b2.workplace
