How to deploy a report to JasperServer with JSON file as Datasource

Hello Everyone,

I am trying to generate a report using json file as datasource.

I have successfully created the report and able to see the report with values from json file using iReport.

Now i want to deploy this report to JasperServer.  I know to deploy reports to jasperserver with other data source like with postgresql

but not able to deploy this report to jasperserver with json datasource.

I am using iReport 5.5.0 and Jasperserver 5.5.0.

Please help me.

As a progress i have added a parameter for json file url, which is on remote server.

After that i have deployed this report into jasperreport server without passing any datasource.

Now i am passing the remote json file url to that parameter.

It is showing blank report.

I am trying to make it work like remote xml datasource.

Guys help me to tell where i am doing wrong.

Hi all i have somehow solved the problem.

I have added a property in my jrxml file:

<property name="net.sf.jasperreports.json.source" value="http://localhost:port/jsonfilepath"/>

In which i have passed remote JSON file url.

by this report is working fine.

Now, i want to change/pass this(my json file url) value from webapplication at run time.

can i use a parameter field for this(if yes how), or there is something else what i am missing.
