Thread: Email report to ldap user who subscribes

  1. #1

    Default Email report to ldap user who subscribes

    How do you set up Pentaho so that when a user subscribes to a report it will email them. Authentication is LDAP based. Is there a way to set it up so that the email is pulled from the LDAP server or does a parameter need to be added to the report to enter their email address? How would you go about either way (preferably the former)?

    Not 100% of the way to answer the LDAP email one but I don't think it's completely necessary. I like the option of being able to send a report to anyone and not just yourself or even the option to not email but to download it so we don't need to figure this out anymore.

    Attached is a report I made with the following features:
    1. Option to download or email the report (works with subscriptions as well)
    2. Dynamic Subject
    3. Dynamic email attachment name
    4. Parameter based query
    5. Option of output type

    Hopefully this will get somebody else up to speed a bit quicker. These are made much simpler with the Design Studio but there's still a learning curve there and this example should help one see what elements line up to what's in the GUI.

    Here are the contents of the .properties file (since it can't be uploaded):
    title=Case Details by State
    description=All cases for a specific state
    default-subject="Case Details by State for {0} "
