Indigo DQM Data Management System Indigo DQM
Shared Data Reports Indigo DQM Help

Indigo DQM shared Data Reports are Reports that can be used by all Data Command Queries and Data Execution Plans in the System.

If the report is common to multiple Data Command Queries or Execution Plans then create a shared Data Report.

Select the Data Reports Tab from the Indigo DQM Data Management Studio.

Data Folders

Create a Data Folder for the Data Report to organise it in the Data Store.

Creating a new Data Report

Enter a Name and Description for the Data Report and the location to the Report File.

Specify the Report Type as either an Indigo DRS Report, XSLT, FYI RDL Report or a MS SQL RDL Report and select the Report Source as a Shared Report File or as an Embedded Resource.

By default the Indigo DRS report type is selected as this gives the best functionality and compatibility. Indigo Scape DRS is an advanced Data Reporting and Document Generation System using HTML, XML and XQuery to generate highly compatible and content rich business reports and documents with standard HTML.

The HTML reports generated by Indigo DRS give the best functionality and compatibility and because they use standard HTML for reporting the documents can be displayed on any type of device whether a PC, tablet, mobile and in any type of browser.

Once the Report has been created it will be available to select from the Shared Report Dropdowns in both Data Commands Queries and Execution Plans.
