Pentaho Documentation

Next Steps

There are only a few last things you need to do, and then you are done configuring the Pentaho design tools.

  1. Document how you have configured the tools. When you get a newer version of Pentaho, this helps you decide which tools need upgrading and how to configure the upgraded tools if necessary.
  2. Share how to start the tools with team members who may need to use them. Here is the documentation for the design tools.
  3. If you want to use the DI Server and Spoon for ETL processes or to connect to a Hadoop Cluster, please go configure them now. This way they will be ready to use when you need them. 
  4. If you don't want to configure the DI Server and Spoon, but you still want to configure different Pentaho components to connect to a Hadoop Cluster, go to Set Up Pentaho to Connect to a Hadoop Cluster.
