Pentaho Documentation

Introduction

Overview

Provides an overview of this guide.

In this section, you do the minimum configuration tasks for the Pentaho Business Analytics (BA) Server, User Console, and design tools, so you can get started creating data analytics, reports, and dashboards.

Prerequisites

Before you begin, you must have installed Pentaho software. If you chose to install the DI server and its design tool, there is a separate section for configuring them.

Expertise

The topics in this section are written for IT administrators who know where data is stored, how to connect to it, details about the computing environment, and how to use the command line to issue commands for Microsoft Windows or Linux.

Tools

We provide a web application, the User Console, which you use to perform most configuration tasks.

Login Credentials

All the tasks that use the User Console, Administration page, require that you log on to the User Console with the Pentaho administrator user name and password.
