In this recipe, we guide you through saving the Mondrian schema created in the previous recipes in the filesystem and publishing it on the Pentaho BI server.
In previous recipes, we just created the Mondrian OLAP schema using Schema Workbench, a desktop tool. Since the Pentaho BI server doesn't know anything about the created schema, it is necessary to publish it. This means that you will be able to perform particular BI operations after publishing it on the BI server, such as self-service analysis using Pentaho Analyzer and/or Pentaho Dashboards.
After publishing the Mondrian schema on the Pentaho BI server, you can use some plugins available in the Pentaho marketplace, such as Ivy Schema Editor (IvySE), Community Text Editor (CTE), Pentaho Analysis Editor (PHASE), and so on.
