I have installed Pentaho BI community on a standalone Apache Tomcat 6. I use Mysql for data and repository storage. I am able to create a new user on Administration Console and I can identify the user in a "users" table. I noticed that the password is encrypted. When I try then to log on to Pentaho User Console, I get "Login Error". I have read around and identified that it must be something connected to password encoder. I have checked applicationContext-spring-security-jdbc.xml file. Password encoder there is set to "PlaintextPasswordEncoder". I tried to experiment, have changed to Md5PasswordEncoder. I have read also that Administration Console uses file applicationContext-spring-security-hibernate.xml. This one contains "DefaultPentahoPasswordEncoder". When I have tried to exchange it with Md5PasswordEncoder, I get an error when I try to update user information via Administration Console.
I have managed to swich off security following one of the recipies, but this is not what I am trying to achieve.
Looking for your help.
