The Reports Server encyclopedia consists of report executables and the user folders. These report executables correspond to the complete set of available reports among all the views. These executables run in the Reports Server factory process (a multi-threaded report execution process) at report execution time and generate the report output file (ROI) by obtaining data from the Siebel Object Manager. The report output (ROI) file will be stored in the user folder in the reports encyclopedia and can be accessed from the Reports Server views in Siebel eBusiness Applications. The report is executed by passing the parameter (ROV) file, which is generated by Siebel Object Manager when the user runs a report from a Siebel eBusiness Application view.
Figure 4 illustrates the report execution process from the Web Client.
The following is the sequence of report generation steps, corresponding to Figure 4:
The report request submitted from the Web Client includes parameters for the current view, active query, sort specifications, and visibility rules. For all reports run in the batch mode (using the Schedule Report option), the status of submitted report requests can be obtained from the Reports Server views.
