I've used the BIRT pentaho metadata plugin to create some reports that I would like to publish to my Pentaho BI-Server. However, I don't see an option inside of the BIRT Report Designer to "Publish" a report to pentaho. I googled on this issue and found some instructions about how to manually place the .rptdesign files onto my pentaho bi-server. However, I would like to enable non-technical end users to upload/publish their .rptdesign files to my pentaho bi-server (without having to sftp files, etc...).

Is there a user friendly way to publish a BIRT report to a pentaho BI-Server?

Thanks!
