Connect Arc to a TM1 instance

Arc uses the TM1 REST API to connect to an IBM Planning Analytics (TM1) instance. You can either connect to a TM1 instance using the admin host port or using the TM1 REST API port of a specific TM1 instance.

Connect to all TM1 instances from an adminhost

In the settings.yml file if you define an Adminhost with the Admin host REST API port (5898 is the default one), Arc will be able to connect to all TM1 instances on this admin host:
