    Default Roles?

    In the PRD 3.6 M1 release notes, i see we can now access roles and username as fields, does that mean we can just say ${username} or IN(${roles}) in our queries? or do we have to use the post-processing formula in a parameter still?

    http://jira.pentaho.com/browse/PRD-2300

    An example of the usage would be great, if possible.

    The known ENV properties are now copied into the current data-row by default, and thus are automatically visible. The ENV property of "username" is available as field "env::username".

    Talking Works great

    Woohoo!! I just tested this and it works great! One of my biggest frustrations with the new PRD was how I can handle my roles elegantly, since I use it in all of my reports. This approach solves it perfectly.

    Great work guys!

    ThinkingPhoneNetworks,

    Did you also try the roles thing in the platform or only in the designer?

    Default Only in PRD

    begunrom,
    I only tried this in the report designer. I was going to wait until 3.5.2 GA came out so I didn't have to mess around with the libraries.

    I copied all the mentioned jars to the bi-server 3.5 to be able to run the 3.6 reports but I have a strange problem.

    All the hidden parameters are shown in the user console. Am I missing some libraries ? Are the jars reponsible of rendering and getting the parameters on the console side are included with the zip file ? What jars are needed ?

    Default OK

    You have overlooked something. I have done it and at least the hidden parameters do not show up. There are problems with date parameters.

    Thanks. I will check again. Since it is working for you, I must indeed have forgot something.

    Whether a parameter is hidden or not is controlled by the server side code. Its basically a "if hidden attribute set, continue with next parameter" when creating the parameter-xml-document for the report-viewer.

    So if you see hidden parameters then you are actually still running a old version of the pentaho-reporting-engine-classic-core-platform-plugin-jar.
