Setting Output Options

On the Output Details page, you can change these settings:

Base Output File Name – The name of the file as it appears in the repository.
Output Description – The optional description of the file that appears to users who view the repository.
Output Format – The available output formats. Select one, or accept the default format, PDF. When you select more than one, each format is stored as a separate file in the repository and attached as a separate file to the email notification.
Output Locale – The locale settings for generating the report.

The report must support locales, for example a report based on a Domain with language bundles (see Security and Locale Information for a Domain).

To – One or more email addresses separated by commas for sending email notification.

By default, the mail server is not configured by the JasperReports Server installer. To send email notifications, the administrator must configure the mail server, as described in the JasperReports Server Installation Guide.

Subject – The subject line of the notification email.
Message – Content of the notification email.
Attach Files – A check box option that, if checked, sends the output of the report with the email notification.

Be careful when sending reports containing sensitive data by email.

Skip Empty Reports – A check box option that, if checked, prevents the server from attaching empty report output files to email notification when report execution fails.
Output Location – The folder for saving the report output. This field is required and you must have write permission to the folder.
Sequential File Names – Appends a timestamp to the names of files created by the job. Useful for the output of recurring jobs or for time-sensitive reports where the output must be dated. When the timestamp is used, the output filename is <basename>-<timestamp>.<extension>.
Timestamp Pattern – An optional pattern for the timestamp, based on the java.text.SimpleDateFormat. Valid patterns for report output files can only contain letters, numbers, dashes, underscores, and periods. The default pattern is yyyyMMddHHmm, for example 200906150601.
     For more information about the valid patterns for this field, refer to:
Overwrite Files – A check box option that, if checked, overwrites old output files with newer ones of the same name. Useful when you do not have sequential filenames, or you specify a timestamp pattern that may lead to identical filenames.
