As a BI developer, I want reports (.prpts) to reference transformations in the Pentaho repository either by the full path or relative path.

      Description

      Conditions of satisfactions:
      Allow the Report Designer to browse the Pentaho repository for transformations to be used as data sources/queries.
      On the publishing dialog, allow the user to choose whether the transformations is referenced by full path or relative path. This setting should be remembered for subsequent publishes.

      ------------------------------------- below this is the original description------------------------

      Given the following file/repository structure:

      Folder1/
      Folder1/Transformation.ktr
      Folder1/Folder2/
      Folder1/Folder2/MyReport.prpt

      Adding a Pentaho Data Integration data set in the report, referencing the "Transformation.ktr" from "MyReport.prpt" with "../Transformation.ktr" works fine when running the report from inside PRD. Deploying the Kettle file and the Report to the BI Server with the same file structure however, fails with a ReportDataFactoryException.

      Full error log will be attached.
