Introducing PRPC 6.2 SP2 - Reporting
This topic summarizes new PRPC 6.2 SP2 reporting features.
A series of videos introduces SP2 reporting features. See Reporting in PRPC 6.2 SP2 - Nine tutorial videos.
Standard Management Report Definitions
More than 30 standard reports and charts covering work, assignments, and work history that appeared in the Monitor Activity slice in earlier versions of PRPC have been re-implemented using Report Definitions. The reports are available by default in the Report Browser.
Default Summary reports
Default list-type and summary-type reports for many classes, named pyDefaultReport and pyDefaultSummaryReport, provide useful starting points that you can copy and modify to meet reporting needs.
Application Context filtering
A new option appears in the Rows To Include section of the Design tab in the Report Definition rule form that lets you restrict report data to what is relevant to a specific application.
The new Report Editor, launched from the Report Viewer, assembles various report-editing functions in a single interface. You can add and delete columns, control the order of columns, and enter calculations. The Data Explorer lets you search through lists of candidate properties for the ones you need.
See Using the Report Browser, Report Viewer, and Report Editor.
Include "unoptimized" properties in selection and display
Useful primarily during development, the Report Definition rule form now allows row selection criteria and column display values to include any top-level property in the Applies To class, even those properties that are not "optimized" by exposure as a database column. The values are extracted from the BLOB column through database processing, not PRPC server processing. (In production systems, as a best practice, reports used frequently should reference only optimized properties.)
PRPC now automatically captures detailed information about report use in the Log-ReportStatistics class. Four standard reports summarize this information, and users may define their own.
