Use cases for customizing reports

Loading a new custom report

  1. Move or copy report template and properties file into custom reports directory.
  2. Run the loadreports command.

Renaming an existing report

To rename a report, you can edit the report.report_title column directly, or run loadreports -d to delete the loaded report, edit the property, and run loadreports to load the report again

Modifying an existing report

The loadreports attribute in the JasperReport XML element should also match the base name of these files.

  1. Copy the .jrxml and .properties files for the report into the custom reports directory
  2. Rename both files so that the loadreports utility knows that this is a new report.
  3. Modify as the report template XML as needed.
  4. Run loadreports .

Loading a report for all users

  1. Add the property to the report with a value of false .
    The default value is true. If the report is already loaded and visible to administrators only, you must first delete the loaded version by running loadreports -d <path>\<report_name>.jrxml.
  2. Run loadreports < path >\< report_name >.jrxml to load the report with the new value

Hiding a report from non-administrator users

  1. Go to Reporting > Standard Reports.
  2. Right-click the report in the Reports list and choose Hide report for all users.

As an administrator, you can choose to always see hidden reports in the list by right-clicking and choosing Show hidden groups and reports.These groups and reports will continue to be hidden for non-administrator users.
