Export to Rational Publishing Engine allows to:
- make the report data available in XML format for RPE to produce a typical document
- make the report’s graphic representation available as an image to be used in RPE and elsewhere
This adds to RPE the much needed charting capabilities which until now were achieved using external tools like the Google Charts APIs.
Assuming you already have the JRS report ready the steps to embed it’s graphical representation in an RPE document are the following:
NOTE: if you are using RPE 2.0 you can remove the basicAuthenticationEnabled=true from the URL
Step 5: when running the report you need to provide the credentials you use to access JRS in the doc spec as template credentials ( see below). This is needed since RPE right now does not support specifying credentials to template images.
