How to save scheduled Jasper reports in a different path/folder other than the default Repository Content root location?


Spectrum integrated with CABI JasperReports Server


By default, saving scheduled Jasper reports in a different path/folder is disabled. To enable follow the below steps:

  1. Log on to the JasperReports Server

  2. Navigate to the folder where Jasper is installed, usual path for:

    Windows: C:\Program Files\CA\SC\CA Business Intelligence\apache-tomcat\webapps\jasperserver-pro\WEB-INF

    Linux:   /opt/CA/CABI/tomcat/webapps/jasperserver-pro/WEB-INF

  3. Edit the file applicationContext.xml and search for the following string:

    <property name="enableSaveToHostFS" value="false"/>

    Change it to true as below:

    <property name="enableSaveToHostFS" value="true"/>

    Save the file.

  4. For the changes to take effect, restart CA Business Intelligence Tomcat Service

Now, to save the scheduled JasperServer reports:

  1. right click the report you want to schedule, select the option Schedule...

  2. In the new window, click on Create Schedule

  3. In the New Schedule window -> click on Output Options -> Under Output Destination -> Check the Output To Host File System -> provide the path where you would like to save the reports -> Click on Save
