This article describes how to create a template for reports in PRIME Designer. The compilation, parametrization and outputting of reports are initiated in Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) processes. Templates in JasperReports format (.jrxml) are supported, see Use JasperReports in PRIME. The output format of the reports comprises TXT, PDF and HTML. For supported version of JasperReports, see PRIME requirements and interoperability.

Reports can also be used as export format for search results. For the search results a special format of the JasperReport template must be uploaded, that allows generic creation of the search result columns. An example, called GenericSearchReport.jrxml, is included in PRIME. It contains one field named value0 and one column header named colHeader0, which are used as a template to calculate the real outcome of the report. Those parameters should not be changed. Only style adaptions should be done in this Jasper Report  template.

Consult your system integrator or the software manufacturer so that they can create suitable report templates.
