Data Platform's User Console is built upon Pentaho’s Business Intelligence platform. It has a built-in capability to schedule reports generation along with the option to email them to users within the organization.

We have just posted the detail instructions on how to use the scheduler in the following documentation: Data Platform 5.5.x Report Scheduler in User Console.

This document can be found in Product Documentation section of Data Platform. 

Feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions!

This is great, but the Service Account name is exposed on every report as the Report Creator, and this makes my infosec friends twitch.

There's nothing in the documentation about how to override that so it shows as something like "Flexera Platform." How can I do that?

Hi @johnmanderson,

Thank you for your feedback!

Our engineer provided a workaround to hide Report Creator in the email by following these steps:

  1. Open %NORMALIZE_BI_HOME%\Solution\system\analyzer\analyzer.properties
  2. set renderer.metadata.hide.aboutThisReport.creator=true

  3. restart User Console Service

Let me know how that works!

Thanks,
