Excel plugin for Incorta Cloud
I'd like to install and use the Excel plugin for Incorta Cloud, but looking at the documentation under Integrations -> Microsoft Excell Add-in shows what appears to be instructions for on-prem or maybe a legacy version?
When I log into Incorta.com and sign in, I see an option for the Excel add in, but that link take me to a blank page ( Chrome and Firefox )
I did search support for both Excel and plugin but neither turned up any results.
Do I need to upgrade from the free version to configure / try this?
I did make my way to enable the Excel plugin**, but still need to get it downloaded.
** It's a bit confusing, but on the admin portal the section to "Connect External BI Tools" is not used to configure the connection to *this* external BI tool.
To find the correct section, ignore the admin portal section, go to the CMC ( top of the page, center option ) and then to the tenant configuration or cluster configuration => default tenant configuration.
Once done, go back to Incorta Content, click the "New" box, and select connect other visualization tools. Click download Excel plugin. Get a not authorized message. Wait for support. << that's the step I'm on now ;-)
The dawn breaks, the birds sing, and the day begins with a working Excel plugin!
If anyone has followed the saga, I was trying to get the plugin and make it work on my local machine. ( it does now! )
I suspect changes to the documentation are coming - the short is that you need to contact support and grant them access to your instance so they can generate the correct manifest xml file and, one presumes, get things set up on the server-side ( the instance may spin-up ready? In any case, the steps to be taken on the server outlined in the documentation obviously need to be done by somebody w/ access to the server ).
Many thanks to the Incorta support folks who worked with me through several runs at this and stuck with me until we were able to make it work!
