This course is designed to introduce software architects to all aspects of security within Pentaho. Security is a common area that needs to be extended when working in an enterprise environment that already has a security solution. As part of this course, you will learn how Pentaho enforces security. You will also learn how to implement custom authentication and single sign-on and how to get information about users from custom sources.
Most embedded uses of Pentaho involve some level of data level security or multi-tenancy. In this course, you will learn how to implement data security to restrict access to data based on user. You will learn how to implement multi-tenancy of data and content, such as folders and reports.
This course focuses heavily on labs to allow you practical hands-on application of the topics covered in each section.
The course is fast paced and intended for a technical audience with a firm grasp of business intelligence and the Pentaho BA suite.
- Improve productivity by giving your software architects the skills they need to implement a security strategy for Pentaho
- Interactive, hands-on training materials significantly improve skill development and maximize retention
At the completion of this course, you should be able to:
- Understand how Pentaho Security is architected
- Get user information at session startup
- Implement Single Sign-On (SSO)
- Secure data at the report, cube, and model level
- Secure content via folders and reports
Students should complete BA1000 Business Analytics User Console for a general understanding of the Pentaho visualization tools and their purposes or have equivalent Pentaho field experience.
The course is fast paced and intended for a technical audience with a firm grasp of business intelligence and the Pentaho BA suite. Familiarity with Java is beneficial.
