Three steps are required for producing a report in IMSMANG:

The iReport template defines the item that contains the data, the attributes to be included, how the data should be formatted, and in some cases custom calculations that can be performed on the returned data.

Now the users have access to an iReport that they may run from the Reports menu or click on the Print button.

The steps above may also be expressed as:

  1. Use iReport and create a iReport template (jrxml file)
  2. Save it in C:\IMSMAng\iReport\Templates
  3. Create a Saved Search
  4. Create an iReport definition which is done in the Customisation menu
  5. Create a report which is done in the Reports menu which pair the definition and Saved search together

Now the users have access to an iReport that they may run from the Reports menu or click on the Print button.
