Description

SpagoBI is the 100% open source, complete and flexible Business Intelligence suite.


Overview

SpagoBI is the 100% open source, complete and flexible Business Intelligence suite. Developed and supported by the SpagoBI Labs of Engineering Group, it provides full analytical capabilities, ranging from traditional reporting and charting features to innovative solutions for emerging domains, such as self-service cockpits, location intelligence, what-if analytics, social listening and real-time BI.

Usage

General

The SpagoBI charm requires a database (MySQL) and an Application server
(Apache Tomcat) to function properly. The mysql and tomcat charms already
have the installation and configuration done for you.

Use the following steps to set up SpagoBI:

    juju deploy mysql
    juju deploy tomcat
    juju deploy spagobi
    juju add-relation spagobi tomcat *(This step installs SpagoBI in Tomcat)*
    juju add-relation spagobi:metadatadb mysql  *(This step creates the database for SpagoBI)* 
    juju expose tomcat

SpagoBI requires a database connection and will remain undeployed until the
relation to MySQL exists. If the relation is removed or destroyed Tomcat
will be shutdown, SpagoBI will be undeployed and the charm will wait for a new
database connection.

It is important to wait for SpagoBI and Tomcat to finish starting before
accessing the web site. Use the juju status command to see the status of
the deployments and to copy the IP address and http port of Tomcat.

Web site

Juju has created the virtual servers, installed the software, created the database, deployed the web application and connected these services for you.
To access SpagoBI web site interface browse to: http://tomcat-host:port/SpagoBI
Replace "tomcat-host" with the public IP address from 'juju status' command.
Replace "port" with the http_port of the Tomcat charm.
To connect to different datasoources for the data analysis use SpagoBI web interface or juju actions as it is described below.

Datasources

Datasource on SpagoBI represents one database. When the database is configured and ready to be analized by SpagoBI the datasource need to be added to SpagoBI.
To add datasource using juju actions firts thing is to create relation between spagobi and server where the database is located.

For mysql datasource:

    juju add-relation spagobi:mysqlds mysql

For postgresql datasource:

    juju add-relation spagobi:postgresqlds postgresql

For mongodb datasource:

    juju add-relation spagobi:mongodbds mysql

For hive datasource:

    juju add-relation spagobi:hiveds hive

For cassandra datasource:

    juju add-relation spagobi:cassandrads cassandra

Then create datasource for spagobi using juju action command:

    juju action do spagobi/0 add-datasource unitname="<unit/number>" database="<database_name>" username="<username>" password="<password>"

parameters of the action are: unitname - to specify the unit that contains database, database - database name, username and password- to access database
