Creating an Advanced Report

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

To configure a URL for an advanced report, go to the Configure tab and enter the appropriate URL (for example, asp/reports/workflowUsageReport.asp) in the Data Provider URL field. This URL will provide parameter definitions and report results. The provider URL only receives form posts. Each Advanced Report has to reference a specific URL.

Because advanced reports require special authentication and remote access, they cannot be scheduled. No Schedule tab is visible for an advanced report.
