Report Designer Configuration Files
Upon first launch, Report Designer creates a .pentaho directory in the current user's home directory, and populates it with a number of subdirectories.
Upon first launch, Report Designer creates a .pentaho directory in the current user's home directory, and populates it with the following subdirectories:
|caches||Contains cached fonts, which speeds up report rendering|
|classic-engine||A cache directory that contains low-level options saved by the Pentaho Reporting engine|
|report-designer||Contains both the default Pentaho-supplied report samples and content, and user preferences for the Report Designer interface|
|report-design-wizard||Contains the default Pentaho-supplied Report Design Wizard templates|
|simple-jndi||Holds a single properties file that contains JNDI connection information. By default it has connection details for the Pentaho-supplied HSQLDB sample database|
The following files contain various configuration options for Pentaho Reporting. The options are not particularly self-explanatory and their value limits are not obvious; therefore, you shouldn't change any options in these files unless you are following guidelines from Pentaho documentation or are assisted by a Pentaho support or consulting representative.
|/pentaho/design-tools/report-designer/resources/report-designer.properties||Contains options for the Report Designer client tool. It does not change any report options.|
|/pentaho/design-tools/report-designer/resources/classic-engine.properties||Contains global report rendering options for reports generated locally from Report Designer. Some of these options can be overridden in individual reports.|
|/tomcat/webapps/pentaho/WEB-INF/classes/classic-engine.properties||Contains global report rendering options for published reports that are generated on the Pentaho Server. Some of these options can be overridden in individual reports.|
