View Full Version : OpenI available at a Pentaho Plug-in

Dear Pentaho Community,

We are happy to announce the release of OpenI 3.0.1 as a plug-in for Pentaho CE. With this release, we are focusing more on developing new features on top of Pentaho instead of OpenI being a BI Server in itself (as in our prior versions)

The OpenI plugin for Pentaho provides a simple and clean user interface to visualize data in OLAP cubes. It supports both direct Mondrian and xmla based connections like Microsoft SSAS, plus provides OpenI specific features like:

** Explore OLAP cube data – point to a cube, choose a metric, and instantly chart the metric against all available dimensions
** Write custom SQL for drillthrough to return more detailed data sets (instead of just identifiers)
** Post drillthrough results directly to an external web service (instead of always having to download to local machine)
** and many more..

A demo video is available at - http://youtu.be/MLX83EXG8uM

You can download the plug-in at - https://sourceforge.net/projects/openi/files/openi-3.0/

Documentation is at - http://wiki.openi.org/openi-pentaho-plugin

We would love to hear your feedback.

While saving report, it is giving error "error while saving TypeError replace is not defined". It is coming in Pentaho 5.4. Any clues?

Similar issue is explained here (http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/BISERVER-12187)

Solution is posted here (https://github.com/pentaho/pentaho-platform/pull/3726).


You need to edit the PUC.js file present in the folder [OpenI_Home]/ui/resources/scripts/pentaho and change the method handle_puc_save like this.

function handle_puc_save(path, filename, overwrite) {
OpenIAnalysis.save(pivotID, filename, "", path, "", overwrite);
return "OK";
return "ERROR";
