Report definitions you create are linked to Universal Batch Engines (UBEs) on the JD Edwards server. Once you create a report, you can load it to view and modify its execution parameters.
Click the Create Report button. If prompted, enter your JD Edwards login credentials. The Create Report Service screen is displayed:
If you need to create multiple reports for the same UBE and version, you can change the name of the previous report you created and click the Add Report button. Repeat this process for each additional report you want to add.
After you create the reference information for a report, clicking the Load Report link loads the following JD Edwards definitions for that report:
Each report loads with default values. Depending on the field, you can make changes as needed.
Processing options determine how a report runs.
The following table lists the fields that you can use to define processing options.
|Name||The name you want to assign to the option. By default, the system populates this field with the JDE Name. You can change the value to one that is more meaningful to you. The value for this field can be a maximum of 30 characters (no spaces). Valid characters include numbers, letters, and a dash (-).|
|JDE Name||The read-only name of the option as defined in JD Edwards.|
Data type for the parameter. The Cantara Access Server can determine the basic data types such as STRING, CHARACTER, and DATE, but is not able to automatically determine if the field is a complex data type such as ADDRESSNUMBER or BUSINESSUNIT unless it has been defined in the defaults definition file on the server. You can manually set these values to make sure the data sent to or returned from JD Edwards is handled correctly and to enable the advanced lookup functionality. Refer to the Definition Data Types table for details about each of the data types.
|Inclusion||Use this drop-down list to specify if an option is Required, Optional, or Hidden (locked field).|
In some cases, an option in JD Edwards will have a default value. You can override these values as needed.
Changes you make to default values are submitted and overridden at run-time. The values are not modified in the JD Edwards version definition of processing options.
Report Interconnects are parameters exposed by JD Edwards that you can use to adjust the execution of the report. See Processing Options for a description of the fields.
A filter defines the required data for a report.
The Filter section of the report screen allows you to specify the rows you want included in the report data.
Default Value - You can set default values for query criteria. For hidden fields only the default value will be submitted.
