Jaspersoft / Advanced Reporting reports are not exported via PDF when using Chrome. Initially, a "Failed - Network Error" message appears. Then, when selecting the option to resume the download, a "Failed - Server problem" error is thrown. Unable to save Jasper Report.
This occurs for both out-of-the-box and custom reports. The issue does NOT happen via "Reports and Jobs", the PDF file downloads successfully.
Expected Results: Downloading PDF file is successful with Chrome browser.
Actual Results: Downloading PDF file returns network error with Chrome browser.
Note: Modern versions of Microsoft Edge (versions 79 and higher) use the Chromium codebase, like Chrome.
This is due to a Chrome Setting issue. "Download PDF Files instead of automatically opening them in Chrome" needs to be enabled.
