Configuring the Report Settings page

The Report Settings page appears in the Mid Tier Configuration Tool and the AR Web ReportViewer Configuration Tool. It enables you to configure report settings for BMC Remedy Mid Tier and the AR Web ReportViewer. BMC Remedy Mid Tier uses the Reporting Working Directory option for all report types.

The Report Settings page displays different options, depending on your installed configuration:

  • If the AR Web ReportViewer is installed with the mid tier, additional settings specific to BusinessObjects Enterprise appear on the Report Settings page in the Mid Tier Configuration Tool.
  • If the AR Web ReportViewer is installed without BMC Remedy Mid Tier, the AR Web ReportViewer Configuration Tool is also installed. It is a subset of the Mid Tier Configuration Tool that contains only those settings needed to configure the AR Web ReportViewer.

This section describes all the possible settings on the Report Settings page. 

If the AR Web ReportViewer is installed without the mid tier, you can access the AR Web ReportViewer Configuration Tool from the BMC Software entry in the Windows Programs menu, or by using the URL to configreport.jsp, for example, http://<ARWebReportViewerHost>/arreports/shared/config/configreport.jsp.
