Transformations, jobs, and schedules are stored in the Pentaho Repository.  Create a connection to the DI Server if you want to access these things, or use the DI Operations Mart audit feature.

  1. Make sure that your Pentaho Repository is running.
  2. Select Tools > Repository > Connect to open the Repository Connection window.
  3. If a connection to the Pentaho Repository has not already been created:
    1. Click Add(+).  The Select the repository type window appears.
