Defining the report

Before you begin

At least one type of analysis is created in the Profiling perspective.


  1. In the tree view of DQ Repository, expand Data Profiling.
  2. Right-click the Reports folder and select New Report.
    The report creation wizard opens.
  3. In the Name field, enter a name for the report.
    Information noteImportant:

    Do not use the following special characters in the item names: ~ ! ` # ^ * & \\ / ? : ; \ , . ( ) ¥ ' " « » < >

    These characters are all replaced with "_" in the file system and you may end up creating duplicate items.

  4. Optional: Set report metadata (Purpose, Description and Author) in the corresponding fields and click Finish to close the dialog box.
    A node for the new report is displayed under Reports in the DQ Repository tree view, and the report editor opens with the defined metadata.
    Overview of the Report Settings tab.
    Information noteRemember: The display of the Analysis Results view depends on the parameters you set in the Preferences window. For more information, see Setting preferences of analysis editors and analysis results.
