There is not a ready to use drilldown feature in JR. You should use a separate application reachable with a link that can generate a report (i.e. requested clicking on a link inside a document).


Links in JR are supported for textfields, images, charts, single chart values, etc....


The typical flow is:

1. The user generate a report

2. The user clicks on a link in the report, i.e.:


3. A servlet (i.e. myRunReport) will generate a new report with the specified data.


To customize the url, you can define your own hyperlink type.


JasperIntelligence supports this kind of approach and you can have create drilled down/up reports.
