Reporting Source

Reporting Source

To run reports associated with a service, you must add a reporting source for the Reporting and Dashboards Service.
When you add a reporting source, choose the data source to report against. To run the reports against the PowerCenter repository, select the associated PowerCenter Repository Service and specify the PowerCenter repository details. To run the Metadata Manager reports, select the associated Metadata Manager Service and specify the repository details.
The database type of the reporting source can be IBM DB2, Oracle, Microsoft SQL Server, or Sybase ASE. Based on the database type, specify the database driver, JDBC URL, and database user credentials. For the JDBC connect string, specify the host name and the port number. Additionally, specify the SID for Oracle and specify the database name for IBM DB2, Microsoft SQL Server, and Sybase ASE.
For an instance of the Reporting and Dashboards Service, you can create multiple reporting data sources. For example, to one Reporting and Dashboards Service, you can add a PowerCenter data source and a Metadata Manager data source.
