Loading User/Roles from a separate database.

Jaspersoft Community 'Read-Only' as of July 8, 2022

Transition to New TIBCO Community Just Weeks Away

You can still search, review wiki content, and review discussions in read-only mode. Please email community@tibco.com with questions or issues requiring TIBCO review or response.


I'm wondering whether it's possible to load user details and roles from database instead of defining it at the JasperServer level.  if this feature is avialable in any version (Community or Commercial), please let me know. 


Thank you very much.

1 Answer:


JasperReports Server stores users and roles information in its own database - repository. It is possible to configure JasperReports Server to use exteral authentication (LDAP,  CAS, external database). You can find more details in 'JasperReports Server Authentication cookbook'
