Automatic Report Detection

The OPEN DISCOVERY system is capable of automatically detecting and displaying custom reports in the OPEN DISCOVERY website. This automatic detection allows you to see and run custom reports created in other OPEN DISCOVERY applications through the OPEN DISCOVERY website. OPEN DISCOVERY is capable of auto detecting in OPEN DISCOVERY and eCapture by IPRO.

To take full advantage of the OPEN DISCOVERY Reporting system, such as customizing the display of your data or executing a report with specific SQL parameters, you must create and configure a Report Definition within the OPEN DISCOVERY system, See Create a Report Definition for more information.

Note: Customized reports are automatically detected and appear in the reporting area under Uncategorized with a Custom Report placeholder.

In order for the report to then be placed in the correct location:

  • Update the Reports Table

  • Add in the classification

  • Configure the chart or parameter in the JSON file

Details are provided in the sections JSON Chart Objects and Parameters.
