Follow this process if you want to publish a file to the Pentaho Server:
Click the link that publishes a file to the Pentaho Server: http://localhost:8080/api/repo/publish/publishfile. This publishes the file to the provided path in the repository. Note that the file will be overwritten if the overwrite flag is set to
|pathId||(colon separated path for the repository file)||formdata||false|
|fileContents||(input stream containing the data)||formdata||false|
|overwriteFile||(flag to determine whether to overwrite the existing file in the repository or not)||formdata||false|
|fileInfo||(information about the file being imported)||formdata||false|
Sample code for reference purposes can be found at Github for Pentaho. Look for the file called PublishRestUtil.java under the pentaho-reporting repostitory.
The file is now published to the Pentaho Server and is available to users.
