Thread: Import Users / Roles to Pentaho 7.1

  1. #1

    Default Import Users / Roles to Pentaho 7.1

    Hi everyone,

    I´m migrating Pentaho from Pentaho 5 to Pentaho 7.1.

    Everything was fine, and now is the moment to migrate the Users / Roles scheme.

    I don´t know if is possible to make an export / import process, or I must create that scheme manually.

    I´m importing from:

    Pentaho User Console


    Pentaho User Console

    Really thanks in advance.

    Best regards.

    In the Pentaho server directory there is an import-export.bat file. You can use that file to export and import users and other content from the Pentaho repository. See fe

    Really thanks for the answer, but It does not work fine.

    I have pentaho in a ubuntu Server 16 inside a VMware worstation 12, I did it as the link you sent me:

    ./ --backup --url=http://localhost:8080/pentaho --username=admin --password=password --file-path=/home/Downloads/ --logfile=/temp/logfile.log

    And I tried with:

    ./ --backup --url= --username="My username" --password="My password" --file-path=/home/Downloads/ --logfile=/temp/logfile.log
    ./ --backup --url= --username="My username" --password="My password" --file-path=/home/Downloads/
    ./ --backup --url= --username="My username" --password="My password" --file-path=/opt/ --logfile=/opt/logfile.log
    ./ --backup --url= --username="My username" --password="My password" --file-path=/opt/

    And allways have this answer:

    As I´m working inside a VMware , I can´t scroll up to see what´s happen, can somebody support me?

    I have checked that no one archive was created.

    Thanks in advance.

    By the way I have pentaho server 7.1 , not the 6.X version, It´s is important?

    Best regards.

    I have tried it in pentaho 5 Server In windows ,and I got this error:

    Error occurred during initialization of VM

    Could not reserve enough space for object heap
    Error: Could not create the Java virtual machine.

    Error: error a fatal exception has occurred. program will exit.

    I did this :

    Go to Start → Control Panel → System → Advanced system settings → advanced(tab) → Environment Variables → System Variables → New:
    Variable name: _JAVA_OPTIONS
    Variable value:-Xmx512M
    And that does not work, Is the production server, so I don´t like to nodify nothing .......

    Thanks in advance.
