Replace the current kettle-*.jar files with the ones from Kettle v5 or later.
Pentaho Interactive Reporting
Interactive reporting runs off Pentaho Metadata so this advice also works there.
You need a BI Server that uses the PDI 5.0 jar files or you can use an older version and update the kettle-core, kettle-db and kettle-engine jar files in the /tomcat/webapps/pentaho/WEB-INF/lib/ folder
You can query a remote service transformation with any Kettle v5 or higher client. You can query the service through the database explorer and the various database steps (for example the Table Input step).
