When we try to schedule reports in CABI (Jasper Server), In the Output Options tab it is not possible to check the Output To Host File System box: the box is always grayed out.

The problem is observed on all reports


How can we enable this option? 


Release : UIM 20.4. 20.3

Component :CABI 


Disabled by default


This option is disabled by default.

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

  1. Log on to the CABI Server 

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

    Windows: C:\Program Files (x86)\Nimsoft\probes\service\wasp\webapps\cabijs\WEB-INF\applicationContext.xml


  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 CABI


Now, to save the scheduled JasperServer CABI 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
