Before database objects can be deployed into the database instance it must be configured appropriately for deployment of IFS Cloud. Even if you have an earlier version of IFS Cloud running in your database, you have to run the preparation step to include possible new necessary settings that you need to add before upgrading from, e.g. new privileges in DBA grant.
The configuration of the database instance is done when running the IFS Cloud Installer. The default values are set in a setting file, the define.tem. However, if you want to override standard values for internal users, tablespaces and more, read more about define.tem here.
