Creating Advanced Reports

Advanced reports don't leverage the XPath-based technology of XML meta-documents. Instead, an advanced report looks for a URL to define its parameters.

To configure a URL for an advanced report:

  1. Navigate to Administration > Reports.
  2. Right-click a folder in the Reports tree.
  3. Select New Report > Advanced Report.

  4. In the Configure view, enter the appropriate URL (e.g., asp/reports/workflow-usage-report) in the Data Provider URL field. This URL provides parameter definitions and report results.
  5. Click the Save Report Configurations button.

Because advanced reports require special authentication and remote access, they cannot be scheduled, so no Schedule view is available for advanced reports.
