Last answer for now wrt how you get edd installed:
Active homepage will be deployed automatically, but getting access to the edd views requires installing edd first as it’s a standalone web application and the integration in homepage is just us embedding it (much like adding a social tile to homepage, you have to first install social). And there’s additional licensing to add the basic license and grant rights to users to create custom views, etc.
EDD is an extension installer which you can install via the administration console. There’s a new “Data Discovery” tab in there alongside the existing ones for social, etc.
The standard views will be automatically deployed as part of that installation. Instructions for doing this install are in the Epicor10_NewInstallGuide_102100.pdf New installation Guide under 7.8 Install Epicor Data Discovery. Looking now I see that we did not include a pointer from the Release Upgrade Guide to actually show you how to do a first time EDD installation so maybe that’s why you are having difficulty finding the instructions? I will follow up internally and see if we can adjust that so others don’t get lost in the future.
Note that once you have edd installed to get the EDD Basic functionality there is a license that needs to be installed if you want to create new views based on your own BAQ (not the one’s we provide out of the box) and then assign users to them to grant create rights. You can do this within the EDD UI after it’s installed in the administration section.
Note: You can get an EDD Basic license via your account manager. As I said previously it’s a no-charge item for all of you existing customers for 10.2.100, but because we decided to change what was included rather late there’s still this extra license to get and install. Apologies for that added complexity.
