After a CPIT installation, you will still have to create an Object Store in order to have a fully functional platform. Luckily, when using the CPIT installer, IBM already provides the database and datasources for one more Object Store, They also pre-set the database connection in the Administrative Console for Content Engine (ACCE). So the procedure is really easy, we only have to create the Object Store using the pre-set database connection.
Here are the procedure in pictures:
The CPIT installer already created the TARGETOSDS database connection for us.
Go on the Object Stores node and click the New button
Enter a display name and a symbolic name
Select the TARGETOSDS database connection.
Select File (except if you want to store content as BLOB into the DB).
At this point you need to create a folder to store the content on your server.
Enter the path for the folder you just created.
Add the admin group as admin for the Object Store.
Select the user authorized to access the Object Store, you can use #AUTHENTICATED-USERS if they all can.
Select the Add-ons you want to configure the database for. If you don’t know don’t worry they can be added later.
Click on Finish to start the creation process.
You should see some outputs.
This is done.
Open the new Object Store to make sure everything’s fine.
