User Acces to data


Recommended Posts



I am a user of BIRT. Birt does not really have any user rights managment when it comes to limiting access to accessing reporting data (what you do is using filters basicly and relate those to report parameters).


Does Jasper reports provide means of manage data access in a better way?

The latest JR release (1.2.5) introduces support for data filters. Basically it is about specifying a boolean expression in the report template that would help filter out unwanted records from the data source.

Just like you would normally do with the WHERE clause in an SQL query.

In this <filterExpression> you could leverage report parameters, fields and variables.


I'm not sure if this is the kind of filtering you are looking for.


I hope this helps.
