Hi all

The issue is i want to use a variable in all pdi jobs but i dont want to display it in kettle.properties file. I dont want to edit each job by adding param options or setvariables or getvariables .

So , i am trying to pass variables to kitchen job from command line like -D TEMP_PASSWORD=1234. In the job, i am writing output of TEMP_PASSWORD by using ${TEMP_PASSWORD}. But i am not getting output as 1234 , it is showing as ${TEMP_PASSWORD}.

I even tried passing kettle variables with a new value, but that doesn't worked too. The job is using the old values that are in kettle.properties file.


Can someone please help me, I really need to complete this task.


Note: pentaho version is 5.0.7

Thanks in advance
