A variety of objects can now be placed in a shared objects file on the local machine. The default location for the shared objects file is $HOME/.kettle/shared.xml. Objects that can be shared using this method include:
- Database connections
- Slave servers
- Partition schemas
- Cluster schemas
To share one of these objects, simply right-click on the object in the tree control on the left and choose share.
Note: The location of the shared objects file is configurable on the "Miscellaneous" tab of the Transformation|Settings dialog.
