Deploy a Template to Report Design Wizard

Once you've created a template for RDW, you must follow the below process to deploy it to Report Design Wizard in Report Designer and Pentaho Data Integration.

  1. Shut down Report Designer and Pentaho Data Integration if either of them are currently running.
  2. Create an icon for your template, in PNG format, with the same name as the template file. The size of the icon doesn't matter; RDW will scale it to fit the correct dimensions. However, you can avoid unusual scaling issues by creating a square-shaped (equal width and height) graphic. If you'd like further guidance, take a look at the default template icons that Pentaho provides in the templates directory.
  3. Copy the icon and the PRPT template files to the following directories:
    • /pentaho/design-tools/report-designer/templates/
    • /pentaho/design-tools/data-integration/plugins/spoon/agile-bi/templates/
Your template is now deployed to Report Design Wizard and will be available when you next start Report Designer or Data Integration.
