Cassandra Connector

Jaspersoft Cassandra Connector

The Jaspersoft Cassandra Connector works with Jaspersoft Studio and JasperReports Server.  This page supports v1.0 of the connector, for documentation of v0.5.1 go here.

Target Audience

Users who want to integrate Jaspersoft's JasperReports Server with Cassandra. This document assumes that the user already has familiarity with Cassandra and already has data in a Cassandra database.


JasperReports Server 5.5 and below does not ship with built-in connectors to Cassandra and therefore is considered a community release without technical support. The connector is released under the AGPL license.

What's new in version 1.0?

  • CQL3 support
  • Authantication support
  • Jaspersoft Studio support
