The link to request an access key is i2 Back Release Software Request.

Customers will complete the registration form by replying to several questions to determine which back release software they are entitled to download. When they submit the form, an email will be sent to an i2 back release site administrator who will create the access key and email it to the customer or business partner along with the link to the i2 Back Release Software.
