    The JasperReports Server report scheduling feature is powered by the Quartz scheduler tool. Buildomatic automatically handles configuration settings for Quartz-based report scheduling.

    In a deployed JasperReports Server instance, you'll find the js.quartz.properties file in this location:


    For mail server configuration, you'll find an additional property setting for authentication in this file:


    The following configurations are discussed in this section:

         Mail Server Configuration
         Quartz Driver Delegate Class
         Report Scheduler Web URI
         Quartz Table Prefix
         Settings for import-export
         Setting Properties in the default_master.properties File

    Mail Server Configuration Settings

    You can specify email addresses to notify when a report completes. To do this, configure JasperReports Server to contact an email server as shown in the following table.

    Configuration File





    The name of the computer hosting the mail server


    The name of the mail server user JasperReports Server can use


    The password of the mail server user


    The address for in the From field on email notifications


    The protocol that the mail server uses. JasperReports Server supports only SMTP.

    Note: Your entry must be lower case (smtp)


    The port number the mail server uses. The default is typically 25 (other ports may not work in earlier JasperReports Server versions).

    Configuration File





    javaMailProperties key="mail.smtp.auth"



    If your mail server requires authentication, change this property from false to true.

    Database Settings for the Quartz Driver Delegate Class

    Quartz uses the Quartz driver delegate class to interact with the JDBC driver.


    If you used buildomatic to install JasperReports Server, the correct value of the Quartz driver delegate class is automatically set for your database.

    If you didn’t use buildomatic to install JasperReports Server, refer to the following table to edit the js.quartz.properties file and set the value of the Quartz driver delegate class to the correct value for your database.

    Configuration File







    Settings for the Report Scheduler Web URI

    JasperReports Server uses the Report Scheduler Web URI to construct the link it sends in the output of a scheduled job. This link must be correct for the user to access the report on the server.

    The port on which you run JasperReports Server and the context root of the deployed JasperReports Server web application determine the report scheduler Web URI. The default context root is jasperserver.

    To set this value manually, edit this file:


    Change the properties as shown in the following table.


    App Server

    Example Value

    Apache Tomcat



    Settings for the Quartz Table Prefix

    For databases that support schemas, you can set the Quartz table prefix to include the schema, if you use one.


    If you installed JasperReports Server using buildomatic the Quartz table prefix is set automatically.

    To set this value, edit the file <app-server>/<deployment>/WEB-INF/js.quartz.properties. Change the following property:



    The prefix for the quartz table, including any schema name.

    Settings for Import-Export

    If you manually configure the import-export shell scripts instead of using the buildomatic, make sure your settings for the Quartz driver delegate class property are correct for your database.


    If you install using buildomatic, these settings are handled automatically (in buildomatic import-export).

    To configure the import-export scripts manually, edit this file:


    Change the following properties:



    Set to the same value as described in Database Settings for the Quartz Driver Delegate Class.

    Set to the same value as described in Settings for the Quartz Table Prefix

    Setting Properties in the default_master.properties File

    You can modify the default_master.properties file to configure JasperReports Server functionality. Uncomment the properties you want to have them take effect upon installation. The properties are documented directly in the default_master.properties file:


    You'll find a sample master.properties here (in the case of PostgreSQL):


    When you execute the js-install-ce.sh/bat script (or the underlying deploy-webapp-ce ant target), these properties will be set in the deployed JasperReports Server in the js.quartz.properties file.

    Report Scheduler Email Properties

    You can set the following properties to configure the Report Scheduler email (default values are shown):








    Diagnostic Properties

    The following properties configure the Diagnostic functionality:

    diagnostic.jmx.usePlatformServer = false

    diagnostic.jmx.port = 10990

    diagnostic.jmx.name = jasperserver

    diagnostic.jmx.rmiHost = localhost

    Look at the descriptions of the properties in the default_master.properties file and also refer to the JasperReports Server Administrator Guide for more information on these settings.
