    - Is your bi server running? Can you go to https://127.0.0.1:8080 in your browser?
    - Don't use https when not configured

    Then that is your problem, you don't have a BI Server to publish . That is what the publish action does, takes your report designed locally and publish it in the BI Server so other people can connect to the url of your BI Server and execute the report. Find your BI Server and put the credentials you use when you connect with an url.

    You have to ask in your company to your colleagues, we don't know anything about how Pentaho is setup in your company.

    When you are the first person then use a newer version from Pentaho. PRD 3.9 is quit an old version. The newest version is 7.1
    Download from https://sourceforge.net/projects/pen...0Designer/7.1/
    Download the newest version of the bi server from https://sourceforge.net/projects/pen...%20Server/7.1/
    Start the bi-server and you should be able to make a connection to the bi-server

    The BI Server is a Server, you have to start it and have it running every time you want to make use of it, if you haven't changed any configuration, then the url would be http://localhost:8080/pentaho. To start it you execute from the command window the script <YOUR_PENTAHO_BI_SERVER_HOME>/start-pentaho.sh or .bat, depending on your OS. When the message "org.apache.catalina.startup.Catalina.start Server startup in XXXXXX ms" appears in the log file <YOUR_PENTAHO_BI_SERVER_HOME>/tomcat/logs/catalina.out (it takes some minutes, starting the server is not an instant operation), then you're supposedly good to go, although test if everything is running ok by opening your web browser and trying to connect to pentaho server page: localhost:8080/pentaho, it should appear the login page and you should be able to connect with the default users created with the pentaho installation (there's a box in the login page and when you expand it, the users and passwords for this default users appear). If everything works fine and you can connect with this users, then you can open your PRD installation (beware, it must be the same version as bi-server if you want to publish, so your 3.9 PRD installation is useless, you have to install the newer version) and try to publish your report.

    Anyway, I think you are going wrong here, you need to recap, explain what your goal is and see if you need to go through these steps:
    Why do you want to publish your report to the BI Server if you don't know what is it? Do you need to share your report with other users so they can execute it, or are you mindlessly following some tutorial or book that says the next step is to publish the report?
    If you'll need to share your reports in the future then yes, go on, you have to also learn to use the bi-server and the best way to test how it works (some things work differently with the reports published than when you execute them locally) is installing it locally in your machine, but, the bi-server in your machine is not going to be available automagically to other users, so in the future you'll need to install it in a real server so others users can log in, and you'll need to publish your reports in that server, not your local one.
    If you are just creating some reports for your own use and you are going to be the only one executing them, then you don't need the BI Server, and since you are beginning with PRD, just continue with that tool until you are able to expand and begin learning about the use of a server for reporting.
