Lesson 1: Starting Logi JReport Server
In this topic, you will learn how to start Logi JReport Server, open the Logi JReport Server user console, and learn the other resource control commands available on the user console.
The Logi JReport Server user console has an easy-to-use web-based interface for selecting, viewing and editing resources. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Google Chrome, Edge, and Safari are browsers that have been certified to work with Logi JReport products. However other browsers should also work fine.
The lesson assumes that you have installed Logi JReport Server with its default configuration. If you changed the default locations or port numbers using Custom Installation, then you will need to adjust the instructions in this lesson accordingly.
To start Logi JReport Server and access the user console locally, follow these steps:
- Select Start > Logi JReport 15 > Start Server to start Logi JReport Server.
- The Welcome to Logi JReport page is automatically displayed on your default web browser. Enter admin for the user name and admin for the password, then select Login.
These are the initial user credentials built-in to Logi JReport Server. One of the first things an administrator should do is to set up the correct user credentials so that appropriate reports can be accessed by each user.
- The Logi JReport Server Start Page is displayed which provides quick entries to some key functions of Logi JReport Server.
- Select Public Reports in the Open category to go to the public report directory on the user console.
By default, the User Directory panel is hidden on the left showing the folders of published resources that are available to the current login user.
- Select SampleReports. The resource list, along with pertinent information, is displayed.
- Focus on any of the resource rows, a floating toolbar is then displayed, which would contain all or some of the following commands, depending on the type of the resource:
- Runs the report in the default format. If Report Studio is the default format, a web report will be opened in the View Mode of Web Report Studio and a page report in the Basic View of Page Report Studio.
