Advanced User Topics

Overview

Provides information on advanced Instaview topics.

Instaview is a perspective within Pentaho Data Integration. Pentaho Data Integration contains perspectives for data integration, modeling, and visualization in one unified environment — the Spoon interface. This integrated environment enables you to build business intelligence solutions quickly and efficiently. Within Spoon you can change perspectives to switch from designing data transformations to modeling your data to visualizing your data.

You can also access these perspectives from the panels within Configure mode. Each of the panels takes you to a different perspective.

An advanced user is someone familiar with Pentaho Data Integration, OLAP cubes, or ETL in general.

If you are not getting the results you desire with your data and the provided templates you can modify them--the ETL transformation, metadata model, and the Analyzer reports can all be independently adjusted using Pentaho Data Integration and the other perspectives.

If you don't have much experience with editing metadata models or build ETL transformations then you should contact an administrator for assistance with editing the Instaview templates.
