Using Jasperserver user login in report

0

I've read all the entries related to how to use a user login in a report, but I'm missing something.

I've got 3.7 verson of jasperserver and the 3.6 version of iReports.

 

Most of the posts related to this say that you need to create 2 parameters.  In iReports I've created a parameter LoggedInUser and set the Parameter Class to com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.api.metadata.user.domain.User and with a default value expression = Test

Then I create a second parameter UserID and give it a default value expression of $P{LoggedInUser}.getFullName()

The report has only one element - a text field to show the value of UserID.  When compiled I get the error - ClassNotFoundException:  com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.api.metadata.user.domain.User

Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong??

Here is the XML -

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<jasperReport xmlns="http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/jasperreports" xmlns:xsi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance" xsi:schemaLocation="http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/jasperreports http://jasperreports.sourceforge.net/xsd/jasperreport.xsd" name="LoginNameTest" language="groovy" pageWidth="612" pageHeight="792" columnWidth="555" leftMargin="20" rightMargin="20" topMargin="20" bottomMargin="20">

  <defaultValueExpression><![CDATA[aaa]]></defaultValueExpression>
 </parameter>
 <parameter name="UserID" class="java.lang.String">
  <defaultValueExpression><![CDATA[$P{LoggedInUser}.getFullName()]]></defaultValueExpression>
 </parameter>

Hello,

The class com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.api.metadata.user.domain.User

exists only on the server so if you try to compile your report only with iReport this will not work.

Try to upload your report in the server and then run it from the server.

Hope this helps,

Guillaume

Thanks for the reply. I was thinking that if I copy the correct jar to the iReports lib folder, then set LoggedInUser with a default, it should work. Problem is I'm not sure of which jar and where to put it - iReports or Java folder

On a side note, I have switched to using:
<parameter name="LoggedInUsername" class="java.lang.String" isForPrompting="false"/>

This eliminates one parameter in order to get the user name, and I have experienced it to be a more stable solution.

How exactly are you useing "LoggedInUsername" and what do you mean by eliminates one parameter?
I've tried using it by itself setup as you describe and it come up null. I've gotten it to work where LoggedInUsername references a second parameter containing LoggedInUser.getUserName(), but at this time I can't get the parameter to work in a query.

I have only tried this with JasperServer 3.5.0, but the only thing you have to do, is in iReport to add a parameter of type String which is called "LoggedInUsername" (and that's the name reserved by JasperReport). This should correspond to manually adding the jrxml as listed in my last reply.

Come to think about it, the LoggedInUsername gives you the login name of the user currently logged in to the JasperServer, and not the attached Full Name field of this Jasper user account.
However, if the username (not the full name) would suffice, for me having the LoggedInUsername as String parameter replaced the need for having both the "LoggedInUser" parameter and the second parameter with default value $P{LoggedInUser}.getUsername().

I think perhaps "LoggedInUserFullName" exists as well. Also a String parameter that Jasper provides automatically without any input control.

Thanks - that clears up something. A few months back I tried this with 3.5 and had no problems. With 3.7 it doesn't work. I think I'll reload 3.5.

I just loaded up a 3.5 Jasperserver and tested this. I logged in as userid = DMKTest. It's giving me the current default for LoggedInUsername "DMK" not the userid. Any idea why?

The parameters available are defined on this wiki page: http://jasperforge.org/plugins/mwiki/index.php/Jasperserver/Cascading_input_controls

 

@dknutson:  I don't know why you are not getting the right value. It works in general for other folks.

Create $P{LoggedInUser}.
In the XML, add: <import value="com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.api.metadata.user.domain.User"/>

And replace : <parameter name="LoggedInUser" class="com.jaspersoft.jasperserver.api.metadata.user.domain.User" isForPrompting="false">
<defaultValueExpression><![CDATA[aaa]]></defaultValueExpression>
</parameter>
<parameter name="UserID" class="java.lang.String">
<defaultValueExpression><![CDATA[$P{LoggedInUser}.getFullName()]]></defaultValueExpression>
</parameter>

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

There isn't defaultValueExpression in this line.

jpclerc,

We appreciate that you take the time and effort to post in English. Please do not worry about any mistakes in grammar or spelling.

You are replying to a thread that is relatively old. Please create a new thread.

Please add a few details. You say that  you got the error when you added that parameter. Can you please confirm that you got no error and everything worked correctly before you added that parameter?

Have you looked at the report /reports/samples/SalesByMonth which ships with JasperServer Pro (now called JasperReports Server)? It has an example of using LoggedInUser. The example is just displaying the value in the report rather than using it in the SQL query... but it would be very easy to use it in the SQL query.

[Please don't respond in this thread, but create a new one instead.]

Regards,
Matt
