    Default new fields while creating a User

    When a User created from the admin console, how would one add custom fields associated with this user. e.g. add attributes like company name, address, etc associated with this user. This additional information would be used in the back-end biz logic.

    I also don't see how to assign Resource privilege to the Role. e.g., how to confine certain report access to a particular Role?

    Instead of adding such attributes to the out-of-the-box Pentaho model, I suggest setting up an ldap server and providing such attributes there. If you need such attributes later, you can create an xaction that retrieves them from ldap and places the attributes in the http session. As for authorization, please review the administrative guides at infocenter.pentaho.com.

    Solution should be flexible enough to perform such minor customizations instead of asking for heavy liftings like setting up LDAP just for few attributes.
