Axon.ivy ‣ Create Report…

Features

Name

The name of the report that will be created. This name should be without file name extension. E.g. use “MyReport” instead of “MyReport.pdf”.

Output Format

The report output format. Currently this can be HTML, PDF or DOC. You can also select multiple report formats that should be created simultaneously.

Save to Folder

Choose the location where the reports should be generated to. The default destination where reports are stored is IvyDesigner/reporting/reports/.

Report Template

Choose a report template, also known as BIRT report design file (*.rptdesign) which defines the structure and contents of your report. There are some BIRT report designs provided by default (e.g. Default.rptdesign).

Note

In case you want to create a custom BIRT report design you first need to install a BIRT Report Designer which can be found on the BIRT Website. In order to use the Process Model Data, as e.g. Process model images, process names, User Dialog interfaces, data class attributes etc., you need to use the IvyDesigner/reporting/designs/Axon.ivy.rptlibrary BIRT Report Library within your report and link against its Data Source, Data Sets and Parameters. In this way you will also be able to use the predefined themes of the Report Library.

For further information on how the BIRT Designer can be used, please refer to a BIRT book or online resources which can be found at http://www.eclipse.org/birt/ or http://www.birt-exchange.com.
