  1. Refresh data source

    I think it would be useful to have an ability to quickly re-read a data source using some kind of button in the ribbon. For example, if I have an XML data source and its structure is changing while I'm working on a report, I have to go to the Data Sources, click Edit, Test, OK.

  2. Per Report Configuration for Engine

    I had to add "layout.document=off" in the web config file of .NET engine to enhance the performance of report creation. Time duration to create a particular report came down from 31 minutes to 7 minutes.

    Unfortunately, the config parameter "layout.document=off" is not suitable for all types of reports.

    In this context, per report config parameter setting would be useful, meaning the support for -


    1. "Overriding configuration of .NET/Java Engine from external program at run time"? AND


    2. Sending report specific configuration to the RESTfulEngine.


    would be rescuer in the above situation.

    Without this feature, product (Engine) is putting constraints to the…

    Hello Reporter,

    Due to some unexpected risk in this change, we have delayed this functionality to our version 20.1 release. This is to ensure the quality of our upcoming releases, and that each feature gets the appropriate amount of time in development.

    Thank you,

  3. TIFF image output format

    Our client requires an output format of TIFF. Currently they are seeking a way to convert from PDF, but ideally they would like it embedded in Windward.

    Hello Reporter,

    My apologies, there was some confusion on the release date of this functionality. This functionality was released in 20.0.0 for .NET and Java engines, but the TIFF output type will be released for the RESTful engine in 20.1.0. I have re-opened this ticket to be closed after TIF is released in the RESTful Engine as well. Thank you.
