Ripplestone Release 2.9.11

September 6th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Overview

With version 2.9.11, Ripplestone continues to improve the scheduler and add features to give you more information about the reports and users within Ripplestone.

We will continually strive to look for ways to make Ripplestone the easiest tool for managing Crystal Reports and Microsoft Office Documents.

Report parameters

Fixed issue when Report is getting a parameter from a Stored procedure

The parameter display was updated when a report is getting parameters from a store procedure it displays a “Set to Null” checkbox on the parameter page.

Fixed issue with date parameters with default values

If a parameter is of type Date or DateTime and it has a list of values, the parameter page will display a list of the date values.

Fixed issue with text parameters with no default value

If a parameter has no default value the parameter page will display a text box to allow the user to enter a value.

Scheduler Changes

Added option to Use the users within a role for row level security

This allows the scheduler to loop through the users within a role and use the UserID or User ID tokens for the Row Level Security value. This simulates the process of when a user runs the report. When this report is run from the scheduler, it will be run once for each user in the role using the Row Level Security information to filter the report data for each user.

Adding option to use the email address stored in the user profile to send report

This allows the scheduler to loop though the users within a role and use their email address to send the report. This allows the administrator to manage the users in the role and saves them from managing the email list in the scheduler. Additional email addresses can still be entered into the To box for people that are not in the Role.
