Hello,

 

I got started with JasperIntelligence reports. I am able to work with the formats, groups, totals etc... But I would like to know is there any option of displaying the user_name(the person who has created the report) on the report. If anyone has worked with it, please give an example.

 

Thanks in advance,

Mohan

In your JRXML that will run in JasperIntelligence, add:

 

<parameter name="LoggedInUser" class="com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.api.metadata.user.domain.User"/>

 

All reports get passed this parameter.

 

From this LoggedInUser object you can get:

 

Code:
	public String getUsername();

public String getFullName();

public String getEmailAddress();

public boolean isExternallyDefined();

public boolean isEnabled();

public Set getRoles();

Hello Sherman,

 

Thanks a lot for the solution.

 

I am getting the user name displayed in the JasperIntelligence environment. But when I export the same report to html or pdf formats, I am not able to get the username on the report which is in html or pdf format. Can I get the user name displayed on the corresponding html or pdf?

 

Please can you give some solution for this?

 

Thank you so much,

Mohan.

Our unit tests export the user name to all formats.

 

Does your report fail? Or just come up with a blank user? In the JRXML, we do things like:

 

Code:
<textFieldExpression class="java.lang.String">msg("{0}", $P{LoggedInUser}.getFullName())</textFieldExpression>

The report fails here. I changed the JRXML file the same way as you have suggested. There might be something wrong from my side. I am not able to make out. The error is:

As I asked: "Does your report fail? Or just come up with a blank user?"

So the report does not compile in iReport.

 

If you want to do this, you will need to get the jasperserver-api-metadata-XXX.jar and probably jasperserver-api-common-XXX.jar from the server and include it in the iReport classpath. That should allow the report to compile.

 

It will not run and produce a report in standalone iReport, as that parameter will come from the server at runtime. You can use the iReport JasperIntelligence plugin to publish the report through the server, or use the server maintenance screens to create a report unit using this JRXML.

Whenever I try to do this, I always get 'null' as a value. I only have JasperServer installed and not the Intelligence Suite. Does this only work if I install the entire suite?

For testing I have the parameter set to display in the title section.

Code:

emiii0,

 

Yes, JasperServer is all you need. Please start a new thread, as the details of whatever is causing the problem are likely to have changed since the main thread 3 years ago.

 

For troubleshooting purposes, please post a minimal .jrxml file that just shows the problem (without the additional crosstab).

 

Regards,
Matt
