Getting Started

JasperReports Server must be installed and configured before you can use it. For information, refer to the installation guide for your product edition.

The directory where JasperReports Server is installed is referred to as <js-install> in this guide. The default installation directory is:

Windows:

C:\Program Files\jasperreports-server-7.9

Linux:

<USER_HOME>/jasperreports-server-7.9

Mac:

/Applications/jasperreports-server-7.9

To connect to JasperReports Server, make sure your database and application server are running, then enter the corresponding URL in a supported browser:

Commercial Editions:

http://<hostname>:<port>/jasperserver-pro/login.html

Community Project:

http://<hostname>:<port>/jasperserver/login.html

Where:

<hostname> is the name of the computer hosting the application server where JasperReports Server is installed.

<port> is the number of the port specified when the application server was installed.

For example, if you installed the Jaspersoft BI Suite evaluation software, the default URL is:

http://localhost:8080/jasperserver-pro/login.html

If JasperReports Server is secured using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) encryption, both the protocol and the port differ. For example, a typical SSL-secured URL for JasperReports Server Professional follows this format:

https://localhost:443/jasperserver-pro/login.html

On the JasperReports Server Login page, enter a user ID and password and click Login. The following table lists the credentials for the evaluation server:
