Setting up Pentaho products includes installation, configuration, administration, and if necessary, upgrading to a current version of Pentaho. In addition, we provide a list of the various components and technical requirements necessary for installing Pentaho.

  • 30-Day Trial

    Use this installation method for 30-day trial software only. It includes everything you need to evaluate and test the Pentaho products. This installation is not intended for production environments.

  • Installation and Deployment

    Choose between three production methods of installing based on how you want to use the Pentaho products. You can install individual components and tools. You can install the Pentaho Server and optionally a separate database in different locations. You can also deploy your installations through a Docker container.

  • Configuration

    As an IT administrator, configure the Pentaho Server and define what security to use. As a Pentaho administrator, configure data connections, manage the Pentaho Server, and set up the Business Analytics (BA) or Pentaho Data Integration (PDI) design tools.

  • Administration

    Use these tasks to maintain the Pentaho Server and related tools. These tasks require an IT administrator who knows where data is stored, how to connect to it, details about the computing environment, and how to use the command line to issue commands for Microsoft Windows or Linux.

  • Upgrade

    If you installed a previous 8.3 or later release of Pentaho products, follow the instructions in this section to upgrade to a current version.
