Configuration

+ Arc prerequisites

Arc is officially supported on TM1 11+ (Planning Analytics 2+). Most features will work with TM1 10.2.2 but a number of important APIs are only present in TM1 11+.

The TM1 REST API is required for Arc to work, it can be enabled by setting the HTTPPortNumber parameter in the tm1s.cfg file, i.e. HTTPPortNumber=8111. See: code.cubewise.com/blog/enabling-the-tm1-rest-api To enabled Turbo Integrator debugging you must also add EnableTIDebugging to the tm1s.cfg file, i.e. EnableTIDebugging =true You need to restart the TM1 service for these settings to take effect.

+ Server configuration

Arc supports all TM1 security modes that require a password, Windows Authentication and CAM Single Sign On is not supported at this stage.

+ Where to install Arc?

Arc should be installed on the same server that TM1 is running, this allows Arc to access both the ODBC data sources and text files on the TM1 server. If you install Arc on a desktop or separate server Arc will function as normal with the exception of the ODBC and Text preview in Turbo Integrator processes.
