NOTE: THIS PAGE IS OUT OF DATE. THE REPORTING PLUGIN CAN BE CONFIGURED VIA THE REPORT CONFIGURATION.

DO NOT USE THE METHODS OUTLINED HERE FOR SERVERS NEWER THAN 3.7.

When reports are rendered in the Pentaho User Console, they are rendered via a Pentaho Plugin (Reporting Platform Plugin).

Like .xactions, reports (.prpts) can be accessed via a URL.   This URL can  be easily be created by right clicking on a report (.prpt) and selecting "Create Deep Link". Note:  This encodes the URL.

Launching the report within the Pentaho User Console

In the link below, "name" parameter allows you to assign a name to the tab that will display in the Pentaho User Console.

To make this the default behavior for the reporting plugin

For example

<operation>
<id>RUN</id>

<command>content/reporting/reportviewer/report.html?solution={solution}&amp;path={path}&name={name}&layout=flow</command>
</operation>


Note: &layout=flow has been added.
