Providing ability to save report parameters
Our development group is developing a number of complicated reports with a large number of parameters (mixed types, some complicated). One feature which we need to provide is the ability to allow the user to save the parameters for later running of the report - this will allow them to prepare the complicated set of parameters in advance and run reports later or routinely as needed.
It's not clear how this should be done. We're using iHub 3.
The BIRT iHub Visualization Platform document has something that seems to touch upon what we need. There's a discussion of being able to "Create Parameter Value File" (ie. .rov file) for some parameter types (filter parameter values). However, our reports are a combination of parameter types (strings, dates, etc).
Can this be done for reports/parameters, regardless of parameter type ?
Thanks in advance.
