Introducing the Evaluation Service for Community Edition Downloads

Hello everybody! We’re happy to announce a new way to download Community Edition kits of InterSystems IRIS and IRIS for Health. The Community Edition is a no-cost developer edition that makes it easy to start developing solutions with IRIS. You can now download these kits through the Evaluation service:

If you already have an InterSystems single sign-on account (for example, to post here on the Developer Community), you can log in with those credentials. If you're new to InterSystems, please follow the link from the login page to register for a new account.

Once logged in, all you need to do is choose a product, a platform, and a version. Then click the green button to start your download:


If you're already an InterSystems partner or end user you might have used the Evaluation service before for IRIS evaluation licenses. Partners and end users now have the option to either request an Evaluation license or download a Community Edition kit. The Evaluation option provides a full-powered license that lasts for 35 days (with the option to renew), while Community Edition is a smaller capacity kit with a longer lifetime. Check out this post for more information on the Evaluation license.

Happy developing!

Well done @Pravin Barton !!  Thank you for getting this out the door.

I want to note for our readers that the new Community Edition download in Evaluation is intended to replace our long-standing application.  So I would encourage all users of the Download application to give this new feature of Evaluation a try and let us know if you have any issues.  We intend to retire Download by the end of the year.
