In this section, we'll log into the Report Portal and view the report that we modified in Editing Server Reports. Also, we'll check out the report history and how to revert to a version of the report from before our changes.
Continuing from our previous topic on Connecting the Designer to the Server, we have the stand-alone report designer open, and we are logged in as Jennifer.
This section describes how to use the stand-alone version of the report designer included with the developer version of ActiveReports.
In this exercise, we log in as an end user and use the shared schedule template that we created in the Administrator Dashboard to schedule a report in the Report Portal. We will also learn how to look at the report creation history.
Log in as the administrator and as each user that you created in Creating User Accounts, and make sure that you can view the right reports for the category and permission settings.
Now that we've set up the Administrator Dashboard, we can shift over to the Report Portal, where our users will access reports.
On the Reports list page of the Administrator Dashboard, we can set report permissions and categories. Now that we've created a “Quick Start” category we can put a report in it. Also, we can put the Employee Directory report in the "HR" sub-category.
The best innovations spring out of our desire to avoid boring, repetitive, drudge work. This is why we bring you (*ta da!*) report parts.
We use the Reports list to set report permissions and categories. But before we can set categories, we need to create them.
With ActiveReports Server, you can view end user reports created with the optional Designer Add-On. You can also upload reports created in the developer version of ActiveReports. All reports on the server appear in the Administrator Dashboard Reports list.
Here we will create three users who can log into the Report Portal and assign them to the roles we created.
Once you've installed and configured ActiveReports Server, you can begin adding people to use it. Each person has a user account that belongs to a role. We'll start by setting up roles for our people.
Once we finish Installing ActiveReports Server, we want to verify that we have set it up correctly. Let's log into the Report Portal and look at a sample report. Use the administrator account that we created in the Server Configuration Wizard just after installation (user name: administrator, password: secret) to log in.
We have finished setting up and installing ActiveReports Server. However, in its current state, you can only access the Report Portal and Administrator Dashboard from the PC on which it is installed.
Continuing from the previous post on Preparing Your System for an ActiveReports Server Installation, here are the steps to install ActiveReports Server.
