Using a local R scripting engine

Using a local R scripting engine nstafford  2019-07-25 11:49

I am using the trial version of labkey. I was hoping to set up some R Reports, but the Labkey trail R engine does not have the packages installed that I need. I tried to change the R scripting engine to my local R.exe, but it doesn't seem to be letting me do that. Is installing new packages/using a local R scripting engine possible with the labkey free trial? If not, what version of labkey would allow me to do this?

Unfortunately that is correct. The trial version of LabKey that is hosted on our servers does have some limitations, such as not being able to add additional R packages. If you need to have additional R packages installed, you would need to install the LabKey binaries (such as the Community Edition), which would then allow you to have access to R on an administrative level, allowing you to install any R packages you need.
