Modifying existing reports

Process overview

If you want to make changes to an existing report, follow these general steps:

  1. Update the report .jrxml and .properties files in the cc-working/custom_reports directory. As you edit your report, be sure to follow the guidance offered in Creating custom reports.
  2. Load the updated report to Cloud Cruiser as described in Loading and removing reports.

Making a report available for all users

When creating a report, the best practice is to set the com.cloudcruiser.report.restricted property to true, so the report is visible only to those with the administrator role. This is a precaution intended to prevent accidental distribution of potentially sensitive information to non-administrator users. When an administrator determines that the report is safe for non-administrators to view, they may change this property to the report with a value of false and reload the report.

To load a report for all users

  1. Open the report .jrxml file for editing.
  2. Change the value of the com.cloudcruiser.report.restricted property to false.
  3. Delete the loaded version of the report by running loadreports -d <path>\<report_name>.jrxml.
  4. Run loadreports <path>\<report_name>.jrxml to load the report with the new com.cloudcruiser.report.restricted value.
