Enterprise-Ready Report Server for Report Management
Report Server is a web-based report management solution that provides an end-to-end solution for creating, storing, managing, sharing, and scheduling reports from any desktop or mobile browser. It lets you create and store reports, data sources, data sets, and files with features such as user management, groups, permissions, sharing, comments, versioning, caching, filters, rebranding, and authentication with Active Directory and single sign-on.
Create and edit beautiful reports using the built-in, web-based Report Designer from an embedded or shared data source and data set with the following RDL reporting functionalities:
- Report data sources: Microsoft SQL Server, SQL CE, Oracle, OLEDB, ODBC, Web API, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and more.
- Report items: text box, image, line, rectangle, list, table, matrix, 20+ chart types, subreports, and custom report items.
- Report parameters.
- Filtering, grouping, and sorting.
- Interactive reports: drill-through and hyperlink.
Style and format reports
The web-based Report Designer provides modern, user-friendly options to transform your data into beautiful reports quickly and efficiently. It allows perfect positioning, sizing, alignment, and data configuration. You can set static or dynamic conditional formats based on expressions.
Save and deploy
Publish reports, data sources, and data sets directly to the Bold Report Server. Organize items in categories, manage access permissions, and update as necessary.
Share reports with your users on the web and across mobile devices to explore visual data together and make better decisions.
The reports available or uploaded to Report Server are viewed through a built-in HTML5 Report Viewer in the browser when you select a report. It supports viewing the reports with RDL reporting functionalities such as report parameters, shared data sources, shared data sets, drill-through, drill-down, hyperlinks, expressions, filtering, sorting, and grouping. You can print or export the reports to share with other users.
The HTML5 Report Viewer supports exporting displayed reports to popular file formats such as PDF, Word, Excel, CSV, PowerPoint, and HTML.
Easily collaborate with other users by commenting on reports. Report Server provides options like:
- Post a new comment.
- Reply to a comment.
- Edit or delete a comment.
- Mention users in the comment.
Email or system notification support notifies users when someone comments on the reports.
Report Server efficiently organizes reports, data sources, data sets, files, and schedules into categories. It enables you to perform operations like pass filters to report, download, share, set permissions, process reports, and change cache settings. Permission to view, edit, and delete items is given to specific users or groups.
Manage users and groups
Report Server allows you to add, edit, activate, deactivate, delete, and assign users to groups. You can add users or groups with the following options:
- Import Active Directory users or groups.
- Import existing database users.
- Import Azure Active Directory.
Report Server uses role assignment to help control access to published reports. A flexible permission scheme controls access to reading, writing, and deleting reports. Each role consists of a set of related tasks that grants access to operations: view reports, add report, update report, delete report, schedule report, add or delete a data source or data set, and more.
Report Server enables you to schedule your reports and distribute them according to a recurring scheduled interval (hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly). The scheduling functionality is flexible and comes with following custom options:
- Schedule with parameters.
- File compression.
- Subscriber and custom file formats.
- Password protection.
Reports hosted in the Report Server are easily integrated into third-party applications to present reports in a web application.
Apply the required filters and save the current state of the report as views for future access.
Get the current view of a report as a URL for sharing and commenting.
The Report Server comes with a standard username, password, and Windows authentication mechanism. It allows you to authenticate users against an existing Active Directory or a single-sign-on.
All items stored on the Report Server are versioned. This enables users to safely create and modify any item as the Report Server maintains historical revisions made to individual items. It is possible to easily revert to more stable versions of each item.
The Report Server has built-in rebranding capabilities, allowing you to add your organization’s name, logo, welcome note, and more.
Manage reports, schedules, data sources, files, users, groups, and permissions, and export reports in the Report Server programmatically from any application.
You can change the display format, time zone, and language to help users from different locales.
Users can localize all static text of the Report Server to any preferred language.
The Report Server will adaptively render itself with optimal user interfaces for phone, tablet, or desktop form factors. This helps your application to scale elegantly on all form factors with ease.
Report Server works in all modern browsers on all devices.
