Deploying Job Entry Plugins

To deploy your plugin, follow the following steps.

  1. Create a jar file containing your plugin classes and resources

  2. Create a new folder, give it a meaningful name, and place your jar file inside the folder

  3. Place the plugin folder you just created in a specific location for PDI to find. Depending on how you use PDI, you need to copy the plugin folder to one or more locations as per the following list.

    • Deploying to Spoon or Carte

      Copy the plugin folder into this location:

      design-tools/data-integration/plugins/jobentries

      After restarting Spoon, the new job entry is available for use.

    • Deploying to Data Integration Server

      Copy the plugin folder to this location:

      server/data-integration-server/pentaho-solutions/system/kettle/plugins/jobentries

      After restarting the data integration server, the plugin is available to the server.

    • Deploying to BA Server

      Copy the plugin folder to this location:

      server/biserver-ee/pentaho-solutions/system/kettle/plugins/jobentries

      After restarting the BA Server, the plugin is available to the server.
