Get activate a JDBC connection when trying to read fields from JSON dataset.


When trying to query a JSON dataset, I get Error: The active connection is not of type JDBC. Active a JDBC connection first. The query language is JSON and I can connect to the dataset. I'm new to iReports and would be thankful for any help.

1 Answer:



when using datasource dont read the fields automatically i get that error shown. just add the fields manually in the datasource. and in the top part you put the property of the json that you need to get into to reach the fields
