Reports management

Abstract

Learn about the Reporting functionality inside i4connected portal and know the report input parameters that are expected by the system.

This article explains the Reporting functionality inside the i4connected portal.

The i4connected Portal provides a complex report management and scheduling system which allows the administrator to create i4connected reports based on existing Reporting Service reports and assign users who can schedule and receive those reports, based on specific i4connected parameters.

The i4connected Portal does not create actual reports, but links to the reports (called i4connected reports), links that manage the reports created in a Reporting Services environment: the system populates the reports with the appropriate data and sends them to the right persons following a specific schedule. To be able to work with reports in i4connected Portal, the following prerequisites must be met:

  • the reports must be created with the appropriate parameters

  • the reports must be deployed to a report server

  • the i4connected must be able to reach the Reporting Service server
