Breaking Changes

  • We have moved the UMS application as a sub application under Bold Reports application.
  • Since multi-tenant has been introduced and SQL meta database has been considered in the phase 1, databases like SQLCE, MySQL, Oracle, PostgreSQL are in phase 2 implementation and the support will be available in our upcoming releases.
  • Auto upgrade support is not provided – Since, the multi-tenant with single installation is enabled, you cannot migrate the schema automatically. You should manually uninstall the previous version and install the latest version.
  • Download permission entity is removed – Previously, the WPF Report Designer tool is provided to design or modify the report and download permission is used to open the report in designer. Now, an enlarged interactive designer tool is provided in the Server to open the report directly.
  • The Bold Reports Server application cannot be hosted in the Azure App Service, since the Azure Blob storage support is provided. Alternatively, you can install on-premise Report Server app in Azure VM and use it with file storage. These impediments will be resolved in our upcoming release.
  • User-based filter can be achieved only with Email – In the multi-tenant application v2.1 or higher, Email will be act as the unique ID for a user instead of username.
  • Localization support is not provided for the current version and it will be supported in any of our upcoming releases.
  • Removed file entity – Since the Bold Reports v2.1 stick with RDL file type alone, CRUD operations on other file formats has been removed.
