RTC 4.0 : Unable to add shared report resource as widget on Dashboard

vishnudharan manivannan (1183742) | asked Aug 07 '13, 9:11 a.m.


I have a burndown report resource which I need to replace with the existing sprint burndown template.
I have deployed this report in the shared resources and I am able to see the report as well(New_Burndown). Now I want to
add this as a widget in the dashboard. So I go to add widget>reports>Report(The 'Report' viewlet shows results for any selected report resource on the server)>add widget.
Now when I configure this report , I choose the dropdown for report however I am not able to find my New_Burndown in the list here.
Am I missing something ?

Kindly let me know how do I deploy this shared report resource on to the dashboard.

The "Report" viewlet only allows you to select report resources that are marked as being "micro" reports.  To indicate that a report resource is a micro report, add the string "micro" into its identifier field (so, e.g., "micro.New_Burndown", or "New_Burndown.micro" - it doesn't matter whether you add it at the end or the beginning).

Note that a micro report can only be used on the dashboard.  That is, if you go to the Reports menu -> Create Report from Resource, you will *not* be able to pick any of the "micro" report resources.
