Pentaho Documentation

Introduction

Overview

Provides background information on this guide.

In this section, you do the minimum configuration tasks for the server, design tool, and utilities, so you can get started creating ETL solutions.

Prerequisites

Before you begin, you must have installed Pentaho Data Integration software. If you chose to install the Pentaho Business Analytics software you must go through a different configuration process.

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, Linux, or Microsoft OS.

Tools

We provide a design tool, Spoon, that you use to perform most configuration tasks.

Login Credentials

All of the configuration tasks that use Spoon require that you login to Spoon using a Pentaho administrator user name and password.
