Create a Pentaho BA Server Plug-in

Ensure that you are running BA Server with the Pentaho Analyzer plug-in installed.
  1. Create a location for the new visualization in the BA Server by creating a new folder in the pentaho-solutions/system directory.
  2. Within the new folder, create a plugin.xml file that will contain metadata about the plug-in.
     
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> 
    <plugin title="example-visualization"> 
       <static-paths>
         <!-- this translates to /pentaho/content/example-visualization/resources/* --> 
         <static-path url="/example-visualization/resources" localFolder="resources"/>
       </static-paths>
    </plugin>           
           
This basic plug-in exposes static files in the resources folder to authenticated users.
