ActiveReports Server offers a web based report designer, built-in load balancing, plug-and-play scalability, multi-tenant deployment, server based Print Management, and Single Sign-On support. For end users, the web designer offers an ad hoc reporting environment and the HTML5 Report Portal completes the reporting experience with scheduling, exporting and more. No more need to compile and redistribute your project to change reports.

A Platform to Host, Secure, and Publish Reports

ActiveReports Server is a reporting platform designed for ActiveReports. It provides a complete reporting module out of the box, plus building blocks that you can integrate or embed within your application.

  • Developers

    Use the developer version of ActiveReports to design reports and deploy them to the report server. The RESTful API lets you integrate the report server with your own web applications.

  • Server Administrators (IT Teams)

    ActiveReports Server provides a web-based dashboard where administrators monitor, manage, and configure server-side items such as role-based permissions, reports, folders, scheduling, and data models.

  • Report Authors

    The web based report designer offers a self-service environment for technical as well as non-technical users to design new ad-hoc reports or modify existing ones for their use.

  • End Users

    End users log in to the Report Portal with any desktop or mobile browser to view, query, schedule, and export reports. You can also give users access to server reports from your ActiveReports viewer applications.

Automated End User Tasks

  • Schedule Report Execution

    End Users can schedule reports from the Report Portal to be delivered as attachments or links via email or windows file share.

  • Create Batch Print Jobs

    Users can create batch print tasks for reports for prints on print devices attached to the Server.

  • Managed Schedule Templates and Printer Management

    Administrators can manage all aspects of recurrence, security, authorization, print settings, and other properties for all the scheduled activities using the Administrative Dashboard.

Data Governance and Multi-Tenant Ready Server

  • Secure Your Data

    Set up rules to limit information by company and department, restrict sensitive information to those with clearance, deliver different data to different customers, or brand reports for different audiences. Use isolated, shared, or hybrid data sources. Custom security providers support all types of multi-tenancy.

  • Govern and Transform Your Data

    Create server based Shared Datasources and Shard Datasets to control what data your end users and report designers have access to. End Users don't need to write their own queries, they just use the dynamic queries defined on the server for them.

  • Extensible Security Provider

    ActiveReports Server Core provides built in extensibility for the security module, so you can integrate with virtually any authentication methodology or security system your application is currently using.

    The server includes a Report Portal where users can log in on any mobile or modern desktop browser and browse, view, print, schedule, and export reports.

  • Publish from Visual Studio

    Developers can author reports in Visual Studio and publish them directly to the server from the designer.

  • End User Ad Hoc Reporting

    End users can design ad-hoc reports using the web based report designer or publish them from your WinForms application.

Load Balancing and Scalability

  • Grow with Your User Base
