I don't know of any tutorials specifically, but take a look at the help section entitled "Authoring document-style reports" (Authoring document-style reports based on CLM application data).  That should help you get started.

If I want to filter the RPEto only one workitem. Can it be done? There is an example?

Hi Cesar,

I'd suggest you have a check to :
- the CLM 2011 Reporting workshop  (RTC 3.0.1 / RPE 1.1.2)
- this wiki (I've not tested its content) :
- this blog entry (covering reporting for CLM in general)

This doesn't cover latest versions of RTC / RPE but could help you booting up on these aspects !
RPE 1.2 new features are tracked here in the Info Center.

In RTC 4.0.1, the only way to access an individual work item through RPE is to use a filter - for example, a URL like


would return the ID and summary of the work item with ID 6.

In RTC 4.0.2, there is new support for accessing work items individually - see Individual workitems are not accessible (147959).

You could actually also use a Native filter with 4.0.1.  The URL that you specify in the data source would be something like:


Then in the template, where you apply the root query for the work item (probably the outer most container int he template), you'd add a Native filter for the the specific work item id that you're looking for.  The filter would look something like:


Where "id" is actually the query "id" from the work item schema and "wiID" is the ID number that you're looking for.  Either "hard code" the ID number, or make it an external variable that could be specified at run time.
