Hi,

I've just read the docs here:

http://wiki.pentaho.com/display/PMOPEN/Connecting+to+a+Data+Source+Document+Plan

And this does look very good.

I have one question; About security - how do you lock down who has access to create a new sql data source? Is there some new permission in the platform or something? Or are connections themselves locked down in some way?

As of the most recent builds, there is a system/data-access/settings.xml that allows you to customize which users and roles have permissions to define SQL and upload CSV files. We still need to update the UI, right now you'll just get a server message.
