 Hi guys,

I'm in complete misunderstanding because of strange error with designed Rational Publishing Engine (v6.0.5) report for Rational Team Concert (v6.0.5). The main problem is that it works without a problem in my development environment but I can not execute it properly in the production one.
I'm running the report after it was designed in RPE Document Studio and deployed to RTC as a resource.
The error is:
An error occurred generating the report
Details:Starting run...Processing document template 1 of 1.Data source workitems using URL https://<SERVER_URI>:9443/ccm/rpt/repository/workitem?fields=(workitem/workItem%5BprojectArea/itemId='"'_UQdPECxBEeitRbRXL3fkMw'"'%5D/(id%7Csummary%7Cdescription%7CcreationDate%7Cmodified%7Ctype/(id%7Cname)%7Cowner/name%7Ccreator/name%7CmodifiedBy/name%7CallExtensions/(key%7ClargeStringValue)%7Ctarget/(itemId%7Cname)%7CprojectArea/(itemId%7Cname)%7CteamArea/name%7Ccategory/name%7Cpriority/(id%7Cname)%7CauditableLinks/(targetRef/(comment%7Curi))))

I was trying to generate  the same directly from RPE Document Studio. The error is:

It's still not clear for me, why it results in error in another environment...

My be somebody have an idea what reason can result in such situation.
Thank you very much in advance!

SERVER_URI is replaced by me manually writing to this block.

 May be it's not allowed import schema from one server and use in another, isn't it? Even if there are the same versions of Jazz installed?

Additionally, does the below URL work from the browser?

 Yes, it works. But I can now use RPE Document Studio debugger. And I found that it falls when I'm trying to display links for work items. May be it can be related to another case mentioned next:

I will try check it tomorrow and put info here for others.

Hi Dmitry,

Please check the authentication method set in .dsx for RTC data source. Authentication method might vary from server to server sometimes. For RTC data source, generally Form authentication should work.

Thanks /Sunil

Hi Sunil,

No ,it seems the problem of connecting from RPE Document Studio was related to some unclear conditions of WiFi of some hotel where I was staying and doing the work. After I got to another hotel, I can run and debug the report with RPE Document Studio debugger.

The last problem was occurred in the container where work items auditable links are iterated. It was performed some JavaScript operations with data not pointed in reportable URI. Replacement operation for string that is actually null object resulted in the error found.
The conclusion is that I have to be more attentive building requests to server. Debugger is able to help very much in this way.
Anyway, thank you everybody for help! It's a pleasure to work with tools which are used by community which can help solve difficult problems.
Thank you very much!
