Updating XML/A Connection Definitions

Sample XML/A connections are included with the JasperReports Server sample data. If you plan to use XML/A Web Services in your environment, then you may want to check and possibly update the hard coded values in the sample connections.

If you have Jaspersoft OLAP enabled (via your license), JasperReports Server is able to make XML/A connections over the Web Services interface. These HTTP-based connections use a user account for authentication. You may have different usernames and passwords than the defaults that get loaded from the sample data load in the sections above. Additionally, your application server hostnames and port values might be different than the default values. In such cases, the connections and any other resources that rely on them will fail.

There are two sample connections:

Foodmart Sample XML/A connection
SugarCRM Sample XML/A connection

If you would like to validate and update these resources, do the following:

1. Log into JasperReports Server as an administrator (such as jasperadmin).
2. Navigate to the Repository Management page by selecting the View> Repository menu item.
3. Click to expand the Analysis Components folder, then the Analysis Connections folder. Click to highlight the Foodmart XML/A Connection resource, then click Edit.
4. Edit the following information on this screen:
     URI (hostname and port)
     Login Username
     Login Password
5. Click Next, then Save.
6. Make the same updates for the SugarCRM XML/A Connection resource.
