The Verba system provides a way to add new, custom report types to the factory defaults.

The custom report creation procedure consists of the following steps:

  • Create a report definition in JasperSoft Studio (community edition), which results in a .jasper file.

  • Create a custom XML file according to the guidelines in this part
  • Copy the .jasper file to C:/Program Files/Verba/tomcat/webapps/verba/reporting/report (assuming default installation path)

  • Copy the XML file to C:/Program Files/Verba/tomcat/webapps/verba/reporting/xml (assuming default installation path)

JasperSoft Studio is a free report designer environment where you can build reports from relational, non-relational and custom data sources, customize the look and feel, and also export to several formats. You can create the reports in the application easily, and they will be automatically recognized by the Verba system. You can download the JasperSoft Studio report designer preconfigured here:

These XML files MUST follow the structural and creational guidelines described in this guide. The wrong configuration might affect data processing, which affects the results and may lead to displaying incorrect data. 
Verba Technologies takes no responsibilities for any issues caused by neglecting these guidelines.
When the files describing the report are in place, the system automatically recognizes them and makes the new report type available on the web interface.

When a custom report is no longer needed, it can be removed simply by deleting its XML and .jasper file from the path described above.
