Hello every body,
I'm a new user of Pentaho, and I really need some help.

In my work, i'm asked to customize pentaho.

I need to do the following :

when a user try to to access pentaho, he should first of all provide a login and a password, then according to the user's role
he will be denied or autorized to acces a certain page.

I have succeed to create new role and securing the page with this bloc of xml of the pentaho-portal-object.xml file :

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------
<security-constraint>
<policy-permission>
<role-name>Admin</role-name>
<action-name>view</action-name>
</policy-permission>
</security-constraint>
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------




The problem is that i want to hide the page from the navigationwindow or the menu of the pentaho home page.


An other thing is that i'm unable to find the sources
of pentaho, especially the portlets.



I'm waiting for any suggestion.
