Connecting to an available Intelligence Server

To allow MicroStrategy Web users to access projects, you must connect MicroStrategy Web to one or more MicroStrategy Intelligence Servers. If you or another administrator has already created a connection from MicroStrategy Web to an Intelligence Server in the system, you can connect to the Intelligence Server.

Available Intelligence Servers are listed in the Unconnected servers list in the Servers page of the MicroStrategy Web Administrator page.

Prerequisites

It is assumed that a connection between MicroStrategy Web and MicroStrategy Intelligence Server has already been created by an administrator. For steps to create a new connection between MicroStrategy Web and an Intelligence Server, see Creating a new Web-to-Intelligence Server connection.

To connect Web to an available Intelligence Server

  1. Access the MicroStrategy Web Administrator page. ( How?)

  2. From the pane on the left, select Servers.

  3. In the Action column in the Unconnected servers list, click Connect for the Intelligence Server to connect to. The Intelligence Server moves from the list to the Connected servers list and MicroStrategy Web is connected to the Intelligence Server.
