Currently, the iWD Data Mart has five embedded aggregation plug-ins:

By default, only the task classification aggregate is enabled in this file to minimize ETL processing time and Data Mart size; this plug-in’s content consists of the following single line:


To enable additional plugins, perform the following steps:

  1. Stop iWD Data Mart runtime node.

  2. Using an ASCII editor, open plugins.properties, add a row for each plug-in that you want to enable, and save.

  3. Important

For example, to add all the agent aggregate plug-ins, add these lines to the file as shown below:

Due to better performance results, iWD Data Mart uses the Groovy versions of the aggregation plugins instead of Kettle since release 9.0.009.xx.

But only the Kettle implementation of the aggregations plug-ins supports customization, so you can switch back to the Kettle version if needed:
