Connecting to the metadata repository

You connect to the metadata repository in MicroStrategy Developer or Web through a project source. Recall that a project source is a pointer to a metadata repository. It connects either through a DSN that points to the appropriate database location or by pointing to an instance of Intelligence Server which, in turn, points to the metadata repository location.

To configure Intelligence Server and establish a server connection between the metadata, Intelligence Server, and MicroStrategy Developer, follow the steps in the Installation and Configuration Guide.
