Jasper Reports Overview

Jasper Reports Overview

You can generate and view reports in the JasperReports Server.
Effective in PowerCenter version 9.6.1 HotFix 4, Informatica deprecated the Reporting and Dashboards Service. Informatica will drop support for the Reporting and Dashboards Service in a future release.
If the Reporting and Dashboards Service was available before you upgraded to PowerCenter version 9.6.1 HotFix 4, you can continue to use the Reporting and Dashboards Service.
If the Reporting and Dashboards Service was unavailable before you upgraded to PowerCenter version 9.6.1 HotFix 4, you cannot create the Reporting and Dashboards Service. Informatica recommends that you begin using a third-party reporting tool before they drop support. If you used JasperReports to create reports, you can purchase a license from JasperSoft to continue running the reports when Informatica drops support.
If you install PowerCenter version 9.6.1 HotFix 4, you cannot create a Reporting and Dashboards Service. You must use a third-party reporting tool to run PowerCenter reports. You can download and install your own version of the recommended JasperReports Server to run Data Validation reports.
For information about the PowerCenter Reports, see the
Informatica PowerCenter Using PowerCenter Reports Guide
. For information about the PowerCenter repository views, see the
Informatica PowerCenter Repository Guide

You can generate reports at the following levels:
  • Table pairs and Single tables
  • Folders
  • Data Validation Option user
  • PowerCenter repository
  • Views
When you generate reports, you can also select multiple table pairs and single tables, or folders. If you have a large data test data set use the report annotations to view the report details.
Data Validation provides the following administrative reports:
  • External IDs Used In Table Pairs
  • Views Used in Table Pairs/Tables
  • Sources Used In Table Pairs/Tables/Views
The following table lists all the Jasper reports and the corresponding levels of reporting:
