Project Data Collection - Install Guide

Last Updated: Apr 23, 2019 10:40AM PDT

Summary: This article provides instructions for installing the Project Data Component Collection.


Requirements for installing the Project Data Component Collection include the following:

  • The target on-premise Pipeline Pilot server should be version 9.5 or later, for either Windows or Linux.
  • It is strongly recommended that you shut down the Pipeline Pilot server before installing. If the server is running, the installation process will succeed, but the process will take longer.
  • Ensure that you are logged into the server machine as a user with Administration rights.
  • Before using this Project Data Component Collection, be aware that you already should have ScienceCloud credentials. The components in this collection are used solely to query and update your projects in ScienceCloud.

Downloading the ZIP file

To download the ZIP file, do the following:

  1. Download the zip file containing the software to a temporary location on the server file system. All packages are available from ScienceCloud home page by clicking on Sandbox Developer (be prepared to provide valid ScienceCloud credentials). If you do not see Sandbox Developer on your ScienceCloud homepage, got to and request that ScienceCloud Support add the Sandbox Developer application for your team and for yourself.
