Creating a new report using BIRT

You can create a new report using the Eclipse plug-in for Business Intelligence and Reporting Tools (BIRT). You might want to create new reports if the existing reports in Unified Manager do not meet the needs of your environment.

Before you begin

You must have downloaded and extracted BIRT.

You must have created a project using BIRT.

Steps

  1. From the BIRT interface, select File > New > Report.
  2. In the New Report dialog box and select the project folder, which should be the same as the project folder previously created.
    If you select a different project folder, you cannot use the reporting operations in Unified Manager.
  3. Type the report file name, and click Next.
  4. Select the report type and click Finish.
