Hello dbogey,
Since you have lot of experience running ETL scripts through Kitchen, please check my scenario and help me.
I have just set up a file-based repository in Pentaho 7.1 and able to run the kitchen.bat in the same manner as you. I would like to schedule these scripts in windows scheduler and have other users the ability to check the status on a webpage like we see the job status when running through kettle in kettle/status page. Are you able to do this? My thread is at https://forums.pentaho.com/showthrea...ob-status-page
Please suggest me whether this is possible or not and if so how?
