NSD cutom reports ?


I'm testing NSD. Installed appliance, configured and started exploring ....

As I can see it is possible to import custom reports.

I've read the documentation and it states :
" the reporting capability of the system has been extended through the integration with Pentaho Design Wizard"
"To create a report using Pentaho Report Design Wizard: Start Pentaho Report Design Wizard" ......

Nice. How do I start it ?
Must I first download it form Pentaho and install it ?
How do I configure db connections ?

Further in documetation :
"NOTE:For more information about configuring Pentaho and customizing parameters, see the following Articles in the support Knowledge Base:
- Enhancing LiveTime Custom Reports
- Creating Custom Reports within LiveTime"

While searching through KB I found no Articles like that.

Yes you need to download Penthaho and install it. There is all so a report builed, maybe this can create the reports you need?
