Pentaho Documentation



This section contains a variety of instructions for post-install configuration and maintenance tasks for the Pentaho Business Analytics (BA) Server and related tools. You can do these tasks in any order that you want, because the operation of the BA Server is not dependant on doing these tasks in order.


Before you do any of these tasks, you must have installed the Pentaho software and configured the BA Server.


The topics covered 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 interface for Windows or Linux.


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

Login Credentials

All of the tasks in this section, as well as those that use the User Console, Administration page, require that you log on to the User Console with the administrator user name and password.
