Jasper Reports version 9

Daniel shared this problem 2 months ago
Defect Logged

Hi!


I have updated my installation to version 9.2.1 from version 8


Now I am having problems with a Jasper report that was working correctly in version 8:


- It does not recognize the images, accessible through http (however, when exporting in PDF format the images do appear)


- Filters (parameters in Jasper report) not working properly. They only work when there is 1 filter. When there is more than one, they all appear with the same name and the message 'Incomplete filters - You must complete all listed filters.'


Before they worked perfectly, problems have arisen with the update


Thank you,

Regards!

Hi Daniel,

Are these existing Jasper reports or are they newly created using version 9? If they are existing, what happens if you create a new Jasper report?

Can you send me the yellowfin.log file, please?

With regards to filters, Yellowfin treats Jasper reports as Freehand SQL reports, you may need to supply parameters (very high and low values) to the filter in order to capture all data.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hello


I have tried with the report that was already created previously, and then I have also created a new report in version 9, getting the same error


Attach the log file

Hello


Have you been able to see any of this?


Thank you!

Hi Daniel,

Could you let me know what time you attempted to create the report so that I can narrow down where to look in the log?

Alternatively, you could delete the existing log file, take the same actions to repeat the error and then attach the new log file here.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hello

I attach the .log

Errors can be found on the date 08/25/2020, starting at 08:47

You can see that there is an error related to the images (however, the url where it looks for them is perfectly accessible) and another with the parameters (filters)


I also attach the Jasper report (jxrml made in TIBCO Jaspersoft Studio v. 6.12.2)


This same file, in version 8.0.2 of Yellowfin, worked perfectly

Hi Daniel,

Yes this does appear to be a bug in Yellowfin which was caught a few days ago. A fix is targeted for 9.3.

I hope that helps!

As a workaround, does removing images from the jrxml affect the result at all?

Kind regards,

Chris

Hi Chris

Images may be temporarily deleted until there is a definitive solution

But would that fix the problem with the filters?

Hello Chris


The images are important, but we can try to remove them

In any case, will that fix the filter problem?


On the other hand, this report is very important to my client, because it serves to measure progress every day.


When will version 9.3 be available?

Could this bug be fixed before the release of version 9.3?

Hi Daniel,

9.3 is currently set for the 24th September, provided no delays occur.

Yes, as the bug seems to be specific for the images, I would assume that removing them might help.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hello Chris

Sorry to insist, but in addition to the error of the images, there is another error that in my opinion is more important:

When you include more than one input parameter in the Jasper report (which will be filters in YF), in Yellowfin they all appear with the same name and it always indicates that there are parameters pending to be reported

Is this bug also reported for its fix in YF 9.3?

Thanks!

Hi Daniel,

Are you able to grab a screenshot of this behaviour and include it here? It would help with the bug report process. Thank you.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hello Chris

I attach a screenshot to you. As you will see, the last parameter of the report appears three times (“Fecha Hasta”, of type Date)

However, the report has three parameters: “Alumno”, “Itinerario” (both of type Text) and “Fecha Hasta” (of type Date)

Although you report values in all three parameters, it still says "Incomplete filters, you must complete all listed filters"

Below I detail the part of the imported jrxml file

Although it may seem unimportant, for the client in question it is a very important report, because they use it on a daily basis to measure parameters that they must present to auditors.

That is why the urgency to resolve this issue

Would it be possible to resolve the filter issue before the 9.3 release? The problem of the images is less important, because when you export the report, to PDF format for example, the images do appear correctly

Thank you!

Hi Daniel,

It looks like the screenshot is missing from your reply below, could you try attaching it again, please?

I need to check with the dev team whether it also includes the fix for the filter issue. I believe it should as they had to rewrite the Jasper Report class loader for 9.3 and make it backwards compatible.

9.3 should be due out in 10 days, it might be advisable to roll back to 8 in the interim for your client if it's causing problems for them. Is that something that is possible?

Kind regards,

Chris

Hi Chris

sorry, I attach the screenshot

It is not possible to go back to 8, they have already seen the functionality of 9.3 and it would be somewhat cumbersome

Hi Daniel,

I do have a 9.3 beta version I can offer for you to try, but bear in mind that beta releases could have other bugs or missing features. Otherwise, the full version is due to release around the 24th September.

Let me know.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hello Chris

Will the final version include the solution to the two problems detected? (filters and images)

If so, I prefer to wait

Thank you,

Hey Daniel,

I hope you are well!

Just to let you know, Chris is currently on annual leave, however, I have checked and the filters issue has been raised as a separate development task (also a known issue) - I cannot yet confirm whether this will make it into version 9.3 just yet, but once we know more, we will update you! :)


Also, I do have to tell you the release date for version 9.3 is not confirmed to be the 24th of September exactly :( Really sorry about that!

But it shouldn't be too long! :) and of course, we will keep you posted on official release dates too!


I will pop this ticket back to 'Defect Logged' (this is for tracking purposes) but let me know if you have any further questions, I will be happy to help :)

Best Wishes,

Lesley

Hi Lesley

Was a pleassure to talk with you

As I mentioned to Chris, the filter problem is the most urgent to solve. The images are secondary

The client is very upset with this, because it is a daily report that they cannot obtain, and they have regressed to the previous situation, where they obtain it manually

Can't solve this problem urgently?

Regards!

Hi Lesley

Chris informed me that there was a possibility that you could send me a Beta version of 9.3

If that version fixes the filter problem in this report I am willing to give it a try, assuming it may contain other bugs not yet detected

Please confirm it

Thank you very much

Regards!

Hi Daniel,

Sincere apologies but I was mistaken in our capability to give out beta builds and I'm unfortunately not able to offer you that option. However, I can assure that the release of 9.3 should be in the coming days.

Kind regards,

Chris

Hello Chris

Please confirm it

Greetings!

Hi Daniel,

A second, filter-related bug was encountered during testing of the new changes in 9.3 and although it's currently not marked resolved, it is also under investigation. As Lesley said, we cannot confirm whether this will make it into v 9.3.

Kind regards,

Chris

Thank you,

Hi Daniel,

That's disappointing to hear. I'll look into getting this escalated with the development team so we can work out a solution for you and your client.

Kind regards,

Hi!

Can you tell me something about this, have you gotten an answer from the development department?

Thank you!

Hi Daniel,


Just providing an update on behalf of Chris and Lesley. Unfortunately there is no ETA on a solution, I can also say that this is not planned on being addressed in the upcoming 9.4 (due in December). Unfortunately you're stuck between a rock and a hard place;

- Stick with 9.3 for the dashboard and other improvements, though having the Jasper report not work as intended

- Roll back to 8 where the jasper report works as intended, however you miss the larger YF enhancements.

I wish I could help further and apologize for the bad news, and unaware of any other options at this point in time.


Thanks,David
