View Full Version : Repository File Locking

07-21-2008, 05:49 PM
Have a shared Kettle repository installed on Oracle 10g, accessing and administering via Spoon v3.0.3, testing multi-user access of a given transformation file and finding no robust file-locking, i.e., two users can open read/write copies of a given transformation and make concurrent changes. The expected behavior is that the file would be locked to the second user for read/write until the first user has released his lock on the file, giving them read-only access and a warning of same.

Question: Is there a way to administer the Kettle repository to force standard file locking behavior, either via Kettle admin utility or Oracle admin console?

I think you're in the wrong forum...there is already a change request out for what you want: http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PDI-159 ... but it's in the mean-time a very old.

So please attach your comments over there as well, and maybe vote for the change request :D
