Creating an analytic connection

With analytic connections you are able to integrate external analysis with your business discovery. An analytic connection extends the expressions you can use in load scripts and charts by calling an external calculation engine (when you do this, the calculation engine acts as a server-side extension (SSE)). For example, you could create an analytic connection to R, and use statistical expressions when you load the data.

Do the following:

  1. Open the QMC: https://<QPS server name>/qmc

  2. Select Analytic connections on the QMC start page or from the StartArrow down drop-down menu to display the overview.

  3. Click Create newCreate new in the action bar.

  4. Edit the properties.

  5. Click Apply in the action bar to create and save the analytic connection.
