Current Known Issues

We're aware of these issues in this release of JasperReports Server:

JS-60070: Domain created from Data source using Mongo db JDBC driver is not editable.
JS-60046: Dependent cascading input control does not keep its value after updating parent control value.
JS-59154: FAF in JRS report viewer: Incorrect results are displayed when clicking the back button after drill down chart report with filter is applied.
JS-58922: Unable to edit domain when Full Outer Join is applied.
JS-58898: An endless recursion error occurs after adding crosstab from a previous JasperReports Server version.
JS-34778: The JasperReports Server 7.2 login page returns blank when using proxy and Oracle WebLogic.
JS-27919: A race condition exception occurs during REST login.
JSS-2941: Unable to use Google Big Query data adapter to open reports from Jaspersoft Studio in JasperReports Server. Instead of the Jaspersoft Studio Data adapter, use the JasperReports Server Data Source while publishing the report into JasperReports Server.
JS-58860: The buildomatic JDBC driver property files for DB2, Oracle, and SQL Server data sources in JasperReports Server7.9.0 contain references to old JDBC JAR files. You should change the maven.jdbc.version property in the buildomatic files to the latest JDBC driver versions offered by the developers. You can find these files in the <js-install>/buildomatic/sample_conf/ directory.
JS-58574: In recent versions of Mac OS, the Stop and Start scripts in the installation directory must be run using Automator.
JS-58540: When using Schemafilter to connect to MongoDB data sources, the format you need to use is ConfigOptions=Schemafilter=<database_name>:< collector_name>. Other formats, such as regex, do not work.
JS-58316: The TIBCO Data Virtualization data source driver does not support using ORDER BY for Boolean columns in queries.
JS-58285: When using the Neo4j JDBC data source for a domain, creating an "is one of" pre-filter for a table or crosstab returns an error if the pre-filter uses a value with an apostrophe (').
JS-58145: Trying to use input controls for strings and integers for reports with a very large data size (for example, more than 100,000 rows) could result in the JasperReports Server freezing in the "Loading" stage until the session is terminated.
JS-58144: SQL validation for an input control could result in an error if the input string contains a semicolon (;), dash (), or number sign (#).
JS-58065: Creating an ElasticSearch data source connection may result in an error when using JBoss EAP or WildFly app servers. By default, ElasticSearch data source connections are not available for JasperReports Server and require additional configuration.
JS-58055: The Safari browser often blocks access to the Visualize.js script because the script uses third-party cookies to enable cross-site access. See the TIBCO JasperReports Server Visualize.js Guide for workarounds for this issue.
JS-57748: Aggregations can't be used on scalar functions in calculated fields when using an ElasticSearch data source.
JS-57742: Table joins cannot be used in domain when using an ElasticSearch data source.
JS-57552: Using an asterisk (*) for the EndsWith and StartWith functions in calculated fields results in errors when using an ElasticSearch data source.
JS-57551: Scalar functions can’t be used as a filter for Ad Hoc views when using an ElasticSearch data source.
JS-57241: When an ElasticSearch data source is used in a virtual data source, the virtual data source only displays the Base tables of the ElasticSearch data source, not the views, when used in a domain.
JS-41999: Changing an Ad Hoc View from table to crosstab may change the timestamp data due to incorrect categorizers for timestamps in the query.
JS-34767: Administrators in a attempting to import a file receive the following error message on the first attempt: "Import failed. Import of an organization to the root is not allowed." Importing the file a second time will be successful. Administrators in a multi-tenant organization can work around this issue by going to Manage > Server Settings and right-clicking Organization in the tree and choosing Import... to import the file. Administrators in a single-tenant organization must go through the import procedure twice in order to import a file.
JS-34346: This release changes resource visibility constraints in multi-tenant deployments (that is, those that include more than one organization). The change disables certain cases of improper resource referencing, such as providing an absolute repository path (starting with the root organization) for a resource referenced in a report. If you have a reference to an image, a subreport, or other resource that has an absolute path (or uses a $P{} parameter that later resolves to an absolute path), the server returns an error. Please update such references to use path that are visible to users in the organization in question. Consider using relative paths, or use the public folder for reports used by multiple organizations.
JS-32077: Multi-select input controls for reports treat the values as case-sensitive even if the data source is case-insenstive.
JS-30847 (was 43707): If a dashboard contains an image dashlet that relies on the repo: syntax to refer to its image, and superuser exports the dashboard (using the repository's Export context menu item or the Manage > Server Settings > Export page), the image isn't exported with the dashboard. We may address this issue in a subsequent release.
JS-19493: XML/A data sources returns all datatypes to the Ad Hoc Editor as strings. When an XML/A-based Ad Hoc view is saved as a report, JasperReports Server will attempt to convert the data to their original types when the Ad Hoc view is saved as a report, but in some cases, such as currency, no such type is available. The currency data is converted to type double. The currency is displayed as a number and the currency symbol is omitted.
JRL-242 (was 17824): While Fusion Charts support annotations, JasperReports Server and Jaspersoft Studio don't support them. We may address this issue in a subsequent release.

Known Issues Addressed in this Release

These defects, which were listed in the release notes of previous versions, were addressed in this release:

JS-58997: Previously, users were unable to bring up the JasperReports Server login page, while also getting a "Failed to instantiate [com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.crypto.KeystoreManager]" error message. The issue has been corrected in this release.
JS-58935: Previously, running the command ./overlay install resulted in a permission error. The issue has been corrected in this release.
JS-36540: Previously, when running the Linux installer forJasperReports Server, the installer window was not responding after clicking the Finish button. The issue has been corrected in this release.
