Creating and editing reports in the Report Editor

Create and edit reports with the Report Editor program. Reports are stored in the database table DialogReport. The following steps are required to create a report:

  1. Defining report properties, data sources, and report parameters.
  2. Designing the report form with the Report Designer.

Predefined reports are supplied with the One Identity Manager by default and automatically customized during schema installation. If you need to make changes to a default report:

  1. Create a copy of the report.
  2. Edit the required report properties.
  3. Use the customized report from now on.

When you add or copy a report, the property dialog box opens first, which you use to enter the general data for the report, the data source required and an parameters for the report definition. Then a new report form is created in the edit view with the Report Designer. This forms the basis of the report design. Using the Report Designer’s toolbar, you can place the controls you want on the report form.

NOTE: Use the online help from Stimulsoft StimulReport.Net ( as a basis for the report design.
