6.12. Report Properties

Report properties provide a means to further customize how report server treats reports. You can access report properties via the report management perspective in the administration module by selecting a report and then selecting Report Properties. You are then presented with a grid that allows to view and change the current properties for that particular report.

Report properties on a base report are inherited by all of its variants.

Report properties are simple key value pairs. You can add a new property, by clicking on add and remove existing ones by selecting them and clicking remove. Note that all changes are only committed once you hit the Save button in the toolbar.

6.12.1. Available Report Properties per Type
All Report Formats
output_format_auth A comma-separated list of available output formats for the particular report. By setting this property, you can explicitly enable and disable export formats for the given report. If this property is not set, all export formats for the given report are available by default. Note that not all export formats are supported in all kind of reports. If you don't set output_format_auth, all available formats for the specific report will be shown. You can then use output_format_auth for allowing a subset from this set of formats. Valid output formats are: EXCEL, CSV, PDF, XML, WORD, XLS, RTF, SAIKU_CHART_HTML, TABLE_TEMPLATE, and RS_SIMPLE_BEAN. SAIKU_CHART_HTML is needed for Pivot/Mondrian chart export, while the last two are necessary for JXLS Reports.
output_format_default The default export format of the particular report. The valid values are the same as in the output_format_auth property, with the difference that only one value may be set here.
The Dynamic List
output_parameters Defines if the parameters and their values should be exported together with the report (defaults to false. Only available in Enterprise Edition). Note that the parameterMapSimple variable must be set in the pdfexport.cf or the htmlexport.cf configuration file for this to work in the PDF / HTML exports, respectively. In contrast, the Excel export does not need any additional configuration. Excel outputs the parameters into a ''Configuration''-named sheet.
output_filters Defines if the filters and pre-filters should be exported together with the report (defaults to false. Only available in Enterprise Edition). Note that the filterMapSimple variable must be set in the pdfexport.cf or the htmlexport.cf configuration file for this to work in the PDF / HTML exports, respectively. In contrast, the Excel export does not need any additional configuration. Excel outputs the filters into a ''Configuration''-named sheet.
output_complete_configuration Allows to export the complete dynamic list configuration variables and their respective values (defaults to false. Only available in Enterprise Edition). This includes the parameters, filters, pre-filters, global variables, report metadata, etc. Everything you can include in the dynamic list query is listed here. This greatly helps the user to analyze the exported output. As parameters are included here, this report property overrides the output_parameters property. The same holds for output_filters. Analogously to output_parameters, the parameterMapSimple (or filterMapSimple for filters) is needed for the HTML / PDF export. The Excel export outputs this configuration into a ''Complete configuration''-named sheet.
output_include_hidden_parameters Controls if the parameter output should include hidden parameters (defaults to false. Only available in Enterprise Edition). Note that this property influences both output_parameters and output_include_hidden_parameters properties.
ui:preview:count:default Controls whether the report preview view directly starts counting the number of rows in the result. (Defaults to auto).
ui:filter:count:default Controls whether filter views attempt to count the number of valid results. (Defaults to auto).
ui:filter:consistency:show Controls whether the link/unlink button in the filter view is visible. (Defaults to true).
ui:filter:consistency:default Controls whether link mode is per default enabled for filters. (Defaults to enable).
