Remove Security from Data Source Management

This procedure changes your data source management so that an anonymous user can access it. These steps are necessary to completely remove security from the Pentaho Server. However, this procedure does not remove all security. Start with Remove Security by Enabling Anonymous Access if you need to remove all security.

  1. If you need to, stop the Pentaho Server.
  2. Open /pentaho/server/pentaho-server/pentaho-solutions/system/data-access/settings.xml file with a text editor.
    1. Find the <data-access-roles>Administrator</data-access-roles> line in the file and change the following text:
      Administrator to Anonymous
    2. Find the <data-access-view-roles>Authenticated,Administrator</data-access-view-roles> line in the file and change the following text:
      Authenticated,Administrator to Anonymous
    3. Find the <data-access-view-users>suzy</data-access-view-users> line and change the following text:
      suzy to anonymousUser
    4. Find the <data-access-datasource-solution-storage>admin</data-access-datasource-solution-storage> line and change the following text:
      admin to anonymousUser
  3. Save and close the file.
  4. Restart the Pentaho Server.
