Lesson 5: Administration of Logi Report Server
Logi Report Server provides the administration feature that allows the system analyst, report administrator, or application server administrator to manage the resources, databases, configuration, security, and so on of Logi Report Server. All the administration tasks are listed on the drop-down menu after pointing to Administration on the system toolbar of the Logi Report Server console.
Allows you to create and manage realms, users, groups, roles, privileges, and alias, arrange users into different organizations, dynamically change the security policy applied to a catalog, and configure LDAP as a security provider for Logi Report Server. For more details about security, see Lesson 6 in this track.
Allows you to customize general settings of Logi Report Server, Page Report Studio, Web Report Studio and JDashboard for all users.
Allows you to configure Logi Report Server.
- Service - Used to set attributes of the HTTP connection.
- Log - Used to configure the Logi Report logging system.
- Performance - Used to preload particular catalogs and reports in cache so they will be faster to access the first time they are used.
- Export - Used to configure the default settings for exporting report results to e-mail, to configure your FAX hardware and software settings. You cannot distribute reports via e-mail or fax until these settings are configured.
- Upload - Used to specify the allowed image types when end users insert images from the local file system into reports or dashboards.
- License Key - Used to update the server license with a new one.
- Cache - Used to cache in-memory cubes for business views, report data for queries, reports, images, and security objects. These settings affect how quickly resources can be accessed; however, the more resources that are cached, the more memory is used and thus would harm performance rather than increase performance.
- Server DB - Used to configure three logical databases in Logi Report Server: system, realm, and profiling. The system database holds resources of the global server scope, such as server.properties, global NLS, and so on. The realm database holds information of folders, nodes, versions, the security system, and the completed table. The profiling database holds server runtime related information.
- Cluster - Used to set up groups of servers in a clustered environment.
- E-mail Server - Used to set up the linkage to your SMTP server to enable sending report results and notifications via e-mails.
- Advanced - A miscellaneous set of options and settings.
Allows you to edit global NLS for all reports and NLS for resources in the resource tree.
Allows you to reload the connection settings after datasource.xml file is modified, manage dynamic connections, and keep cached connection for reuse.
Provides other administration tasks.
- Dashboard Listeners - Used to manage implementations of the Dashboard Listener API.
- Triggers - Used to create and manage triggers for use when scheduling tasks.
- Converting - Used to permanently convert resources earlier than V8 in the server resource tree to adapt to the current version to avoid conversion at each run.
- Custom Fields - Used to manage user defined fields which can be used as resource properties in Logi Report Server.
- Dynamic Display Names - Used to manage dynamic display names for business view elements.
- Batch Refresh Dynamic Resources - Used to recompile dynamic resources in reports after the business views used by the reports are changed.
- Monitor - Allows you to access Logi Report Server Monitor to log, monitor, and report on real-time system status and the performance of Logi Report Server.
