Thread: How to set custom defaults for kettle.properties?

  1. Default How to set custom defaults for kettle.properties?

    I'd like to deploy a single instance of kettle for many users, but with kettle.properties defaults that are different from the standard install.

    Specifically I want to change the default value of

    KETTLE_EMPTY_STRING_DIFFERS_FROM_NULL=Y

    Is there a way to package custom defaults for kettle.properties with the kettle install?

  2. Default

    Hmm, I was hoping someone had a good idea here? Please help!

    CE or EE?

  4. Default

    I found my own answer that may be helpful for anybody having the same question: There is a file kettle-properties.xml that defines the defaults. It's content appears to be merged with .kettle/kettle.properties and so changing its content changes the defaults for deployment.

    Setting a different KETTLE_HOME env var can allow differing kettle.properties files for different circumstances.
