The Pentaho Administration Console provides you with a central location from which to administer your Pentaho deployments. The console aggregates and simplifies many common administrative tasks such as managing users and roles, scheduling jobs, and managing services. The Administration Console changes how you interact with your Pentaho deployments by automating some of the tasks that you now perform manually.
The Pentaho Administration Console offers limited functionality compared to the feature-rich, subscription-only, Pentaho Enterprise Console. The Pentaho Enterprise Console provides additional functionality that allows you to monitor performance, remotely monitor activity on a Carte server instance (for Pentaho Data Integration), verify connections, test configuration settings, configure security, and much more. For more information about the Pentaho Enterprise Console, contact us.
