Embedded Reporting

The Bold Reports Report Designer, Report Viewer, and Report Writer come with the latest .NET 6.0 Framework support for web and desktop platforms.

Cloud Reporting

We have exposed APIs to auto-synchronize Azure AD users and groups hourly, save Azure Active Directory settings, save email (SMTP) settings, import Azure AD Groups, generate embed secret keys, and favorite or unfavorite reports.

Report Designer

Security improvements

Report Designer security has been increased with:

  • Protection from cross-site scripting attacks.
  • Prevention of local file inclusion (LFI), which is also known as avoiding path traversal attacks.
  • Improved security protocols for read and write APIs.
  • Improved authentication access validation for Bold Reports service end points.
  • Resolution of the file protocol access attack with URL fields in Report Designer file data sources.
  • Improved validations on report serialization calls to filter anonymous data.

Custom legend text support

We’ve included the custom legend text property in the chart series properties to customize the series legend text.

Load image as base-64

A client-side API loads images through XMLHTTPRequest to avoid sending data through URLs. Set the enableImageBlobing property to true to load images through XMLHTTPRequest.

API: https://help.boldreports.com/embedded-reporting/javascript-reporting/report-designer/api-reference/members/#enableimageblobing

<div id="container"></div>

<script>
$("#container").boldReportDesigner({
  enableImageBlobing: true
});
</script>

Multiple-value filtering with report filters

The multiple-value filtering support was improved for the IN operator to separate values based on the current local culture separator.

Hide code module and filter data source

A server-side API hides code modules and filters data sources.

public class ReportingAPIController : ApiController, IReportDesignerController, IDesignerSettings
{
 public void InitializeSettings(DesignerSettings designerSettings)
 {
  designerSettings.DisableCodeModule = true;
  designerSettings.FilterDataConnectors = new List<string>(){ "SQL","Excel" };
 }
}
