i2b2 Workbench How-To

Downloading i2b2 Workbench

From i2b2.org:
“The i2b2 Workbench is a collection of client-side components that communicate
with i2b2 Cells and help aggregate their functionality in the Hive. Each component is
designed as an Eclipse-based plug-in that interacts with a hive cell; collectively these
plug-ins provide a cohesive entity to tie all the i2b2 cells together.”

To download the workbench:
1. Go to the following link (https://www.i2b2.org/software/index.html#) and select the
most recent version of the software download for your platform.
2. Open the folder where you downloaded the software.
3. Locate the i2b2workbench.properties Wile.
4. Open the Wile using a text editor, such as Notepad.

messageversion=1.1
demoUser=no
I2b2.1=i2b2,REST,https://i2b2.cernerresearch.com/i2b2/services/PMService/
6. Save the File.
