Shared objects

A variety of objects can now be placed in a shared objects file on the local machine. The default location for the shared objects file is $HOME/.kettle/shared.xml. Objects that can be shared using this method include:

  • Database connections
  • Steps
  • Slave servers
  • Partition schemas
  • Cluster schemas

To share one of these objects, simply right-click on the object in the tree control on the left and choose share.

Note: The location of the shared objects file is configurable on the "Miscellaneous" tab of the Transformation|Settings dialog.
