How You Configure the Report Task Type

The Report task action type in a checklist enables task performers to view or download a BI Publisher report when performing the task.

For example, a Human Resources (HR) specialist can view all the data collected as part of the recruiting process or view the performance rating report during an exit interview.

Note: Make sure you provide task performers' access to the BI Publisher area otherwise they can't view the report.

What to Include in the Report Path

This is what you can include in the report

  • Specify the BI Publisher report folder path followed by the report name concatenated with a "/".

  • Include optional parameters in the format parameter name={parameter value}.

  • Use the prefix "?" before the first parameter followed by "&" before additional parameters.

Note: Remove the + character in the report paths.

Here are checklist specific parameters you can include in the report path:

Parameter Name

Parameter Value

What it Does

P_ALLOCATED_TASK_ID

{AllocatedTaskId}

Passes the ID of the allocated task to the report.

P_ALLOCATED_CHECKLIST_ID

{AllocatedChecklistId}

Passes the ID of the allocated checklist to the report.

Note: You need to pass only the parameter as stated in the table. The PersonId is implicitly passed based on the Allocated Task ID or the Allocated Checklist ID.

Let's say you specify this in the report path:/Samples/SalaryReport.xdo?P_ALLOCATED_TASK_ID={AllocatedTaskId}, the application passes the current allocated task's ID to the report as a parameter which the report can use to filter the results.

Alternatively, if you specify this in the report path:/Samples/SalaryReport.xdo?P_ALLOCATED_CHECKLIST_ID={AllocatedChecklistId}, the application passes the current allocated checklist ID to the report as a parameter which the report can use to filter the results.

You can also use both the parameters. For example, /Samples/SalaryReport.xdo?P_ALLOCATED_CHECKLIST_ID={AllocatedChecklistId}&P_ALLOCATED_TASK_ID={AllocatedTaskId}

If you don't specify any parameters then the default layout and output format are used to render the report. For example, if you specify this:/Custom/Reports/ChecklistCompletionReport.xdo the application runs the report with the default options and generates the output in PDF format. Only PDF report output format is currently supported. If the Document Type is specified, the generated report is automatically created as a document record for that document type either in the task performer or checklist assignee's Document Records based on how you have configured it.
