Installing the Analyst's Notebook SDK

You can install the Analyst's Notebook SDK on any machine that matches the Analyst's Notebook system requirements. To use the Analyst's Notebook SDK to effectively develop and build plug-ins to Analyst's Notebook, you should ensure that Analyst's Notebook SDK is provided in two distinct parts: the main SDK and the addendum that can be used to interact with i2 Analyze and Analyst's Notebook Premium. Note: Administrator privileges are required to install Analyst's Notebook SDK.

The installer for Analyst's Notebook SDK works on a per-user basis. The documentation is available to all users, but the samples are installed only for the user who actually started the installer. If another user needs to use the SDK on the same computer, they must use the Install Sample Material tool to duplicate this content.

  1. Close all open applications.
  2. Extract the product files from your downloaded distribution.
  3. Browse to the top level of the folder structure, and run Setup.exe.
  4. Follow the prompts to complete the installation.

The following are added to the Start menu:

i2 Analyst's Notebook SDK > API Examples Viewer Run the interactive API examples
i2 Analyst's Notebook SDK > Install Sample Material Install templates and sample projects for more users
i2 Analyst's Notebook SDK > Documentation Access the product documentation in PDF and CHM format
i2 Analyst's Notebook SDK > Sample Projects > Go to the Sample Projects folder

Installing the Analyst's Notebook Premium Addendum

i2 Analyst's Notebook Premium SDK Addendum enable the development of Analyst's Notebook plug-ins that can interact with i2 Analyze records on charts and in the Information Store.

The addendum can be applied to a system with an existing installation of i2 Analyst's Notebook SDK 10.0.00. The sample projects require either Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 with .NET Framework version 4.7.2, or Microsoft Visual Studio 2019 with .NET Framework version 4.8.

This fix pack is compatible with i2 Analyze 4.4.2 and Analyst's Notebook Premium 10.0.0.

The i2 Analyst's Notebook SDK installation contains an addendum zip file that contains folders named Samples and Documentation. This compressed folder can be found alongside the documentation in your installation.

For example: C:\Program Files (x86)\i2 Analyst's Notebook 8 SDK\Resources\en-US\Documentation\Premium

You can put the contents of the Samples folder wherever you would normally store Visual Studio development projects. The documentation, which describes the samples and the new API, is in HTML format and best viewed when hosted on a web server. The simplest approach is to use your existing i2 Analyze server:

  1. Copy the Documentation folder from the Premium to the server where the i2 Analyze deployment toolkit is installed. Put the Documentation folder in the toolkit\configuration\fragments\opal-services folder, alongside the existing WEB-INF folder. Note: "Documentation" forms part of the URL for the API documentation. To change the URL, rename the copied folder before you complete the next steps.

  2. On the i2 Analyze server, open a command prompt and navigate to the toolkit\scripts folder in the deployment toolkit.

  3. Enter the following commands in sequence to redeploy and restart the i2 Analyze server with the new API documentation:

     setup -t stopLiberty
     setup -t deployLiberty
     setup -t startLiberty
  4. After the server restarts, you can read the documentation at:


where <host_name> is the fully qualified name of the i2 Analyze server, and Documentation might be different if you changed the directory name in Step 1.
