Hi,

I am trying to find some documentation around the way security (that deals with authentication/authorization) is setup in the out-of-the-box Pentaho BI application.

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Thanks,
Sarang

Thanks for the pointers, Tom. This documentation is a great starting point.

I apologize for not getting on the Wiki and looking around before I posted here, but I am very new to this product and the wbsite, so I wasn't sure how things are organized.

I will come out with my any questions I may have, and I appreciate all the help!
Cheers!

Yeah JDBC is seemingly nice and easy, although I haven't tried it, LDAP is harder but worth it in the end if you have an Active Directory or similar setup on your network.
