Configuring Server Profile
On the Logi JReport Administration > Profile page, administrators can define some initial settings of Logi JReport Server and customize some features by configuring the server profile. Each end user can also configure his own profile on the Logi JReport Console > Profile page. The difference lies in that any settings specified by an end user can only be applied to this user, while the settings specified by administrators on the Logi JReport Administration > Profile page will be applied to all users.
There are three subjects on the Profile page: Change Password, Customize Server Preferences and Customize Profile. The Change Password subject is available on the Logi JReport Console page only. Each end user can change the password he uses for logging onto Logi JReport Server. The Customize Server Preferences subject contains options for customizing the Logi JReport Server web pages and some server features and is divided into three sub categories: General, Export Formats and Advanced. The Customize Profile subject is for customizing common features of Page Report Studio, Web Report Studio, and JDashboard and their individual features and preferences as well.
You can also use URL commands to change the password of a user or load the Server Preferences page directly.
The following table lists the options in each subject and their usages on the Profile page.
