CAS with Pentaho Community Edition

In this week I integrate one of the most useful feature i.e. CAS (Single Sign on) with the help my collegue and online user community.

So with my boss’ blessing, I decided to document what I had to do to make this work in the spirit of giving back to the community. Plus with the rising awareness of the benefits of BI even for small to medium corporations, I have no doubt that this information would be useful for someone somewhere.

The need

1) CAS Server
2) Pentaho BI 3.x server (Community Edition)
3) Install certificate


1) \biserver-ce\pentaho-solutions\system\applicationContext-spring-security.xml

make changes in applicationContext file for CAS Client.

and add following jars in biserver-ce\tomcat\webapps\pentaho\WEB-INF\lib folder

1) spring-security-cas-client-2.0.5.RELEASE.jar
2) cas-client-core-3.1.10.jar

After added jars and configuration in applicationContext file then install certificate

step-1) download and copy file in PC where Pentaho BI server install
step-2) compile
step-3) run (java InstallCert casservername(e.g. )

Well, this tutorial has already taken several hours to write and edit.
I hope I pointed out some of the things that made integration with BI more clear for you. Have fun !
