This page is can be specially useful when the report status needs to be modified due to erroneous behavior in IFS Business Reporter Execution Server, such as:

  • Reports containing an invalid design
  • Technical configuration limitations of the server hosting the IFS Business Reporter Execution Server (BRES), leading to unsuccessful report execution. e.g.:

    • A published report has a design that cannot be rendered by¬† BRES
    • An end user is using a version of IFS Business Reporter that is not compatible with BRES version.

In such instances, report rendering status modifications can be helpful to rectify the error.

When an error occurs, the IFS Business Reporter Execution Server will for the particular report instance do the following:

  • The Rendering Status will be set to Error
  • The error text in the associated background job will be updated
  • The background job status is set to Error

Downloading a Report Instance

It is possible to download the report design, an xlsx file, and the report data, a dsrd or gz file, associated with a specific IFS Business Reporter report instance, using the command Export Report Template and Data Set.

The possibility to download report design and data can be very useful in support situations. Then just export the files, zip them and attach them to a case/task.
