Online report/chart builder

Scroll Prev Next More

 

The Enterprise Edition of PHPRunner includes an online report/chart builder that allows you to view, create, edit, and delete charts and reports in the browser.

 

To enable the online report/chart builder, select the Web Reports checkbox on the Miscellaneous screen and build the project.

webrep_misc

 

Then launch the online report/chart builder by running webreport.php in the browser (e.g., http://www.yourwebsite.com/project1/webreport.php).

 

yellowbulbNote: the online report/chart builder uses the PHPRunner project security model. So if you use a Login page, you need to log into your application first.

Working with the online report/chart builder

The start page presents you with the list of charts and reports. If your project uses permissions, the charts and reports are divided into shared and private ones.

webrep_start_page

 

You can view, edit, or delete the charts and reports if the permissions allow you to do so. You can also create a new chart or a new report.

 

Use Advanced search to narrow down the results while viewing charts and reports. When viewing a report, you can also print the current page or the whole report, open a report as a Microsoft Word or Microsoft Excel document.

 

Here is an example of a Web report:

webreports_result

 

Here is an example of a web chart:

webcharts_result

 

Admin area

The Admin area allows you to set up the group permissions for creating web reports and charts using the Database tables, Project tables, and SQL queries tabs. You can learn more about these tabs on Creating web reports or Creating web charts articles.

 

Here is the Database tables permissions tab:

webrep_admin_database

 

Here is the Project tables permissions tab:

webrep_admin_project

 

Here is the SQL queries permissions tab:

webrep_admin_sql

 

The Admin area is available only for the web reports and charts administrator who can be assigned in the Security -> Permissions popup.

webrep_group_permissions

 

Custom SQL

A user with admin permissions (admin) can create, edit, and delete custom SQL queries by clicking the Custom SQL button. These queries can be used by other users as data sources for reports and charts. For more information, see Custom SQL.

webrep_admin_custom_sql
