Hi,

I would like to know how to skip the Pentaho Login and go directly to my application. Also, where do i write the piece of code to do this?

Check out Removing Security (http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/PentahoDoc/Removing+Security).

I would like to ask - if we wanted some code to perform a silent login for a user behind the scenes (not necessarily CAS/SSO) just in order to perform an action, can we do that?

Does the API give us a way to put some code together for a user login in order to get an IPentahoSession?

Depending on how simple you want the solution to be...


Very simple: Append userid=joe&password=password to the URL and the user will be authenticated. See RequestParameterAuthenticationFilter (http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/PentahoDoc/02.+Authentication).
Not simple: Use basic or digest authentication along with this setup (http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/PentahoDoc/Web+Services+Security).
