EC2 instance has no iReport

We set up an EC2 instance for Jaspersoft and don't see iReport to develop any reports. Does the Amazon EC2 instance of Jaspersoft come only with server option? iReport needs to be used locally and deployed to the server?

Please advise.

aws is running on windows platform. Does the development happen by RDP to the EC2 instance or on local work station?

Your database must have been there at cloud,so Its best practice to run iReport on cloud and compile your report there and upload the jrxml file directly onto the server or through iReport...

You only need iReport locally on the workstation you develop the reports (there is no need to have it installed in your server). iReport will allow you to connect with the server instance that you have deployed on AWS. Just download and install iReport Locally on your commputer and follow the instructions here: to connect it to your JasperServer on AWS

How about JETL pro? Should that also be used locally and deploy to Jasper server?

I assume you have used the JasperServer for AWS from the AWS Marketplace, in that case Japser ETL Pro is not part of that offering (see

If you have an AWS instance from the marketplace running you can register for free or paid support from here:
