Selecting the analyses you want to include in the report


  1. Click Analysis List to display the corresponding view and then click the Select analyses link to open a dialog box listing all analyses in the Analyses folder.
    Overview of the analyses from the Analyses folder.
  2. From the list, select the check boxes of the analysis/analyses you want to include in the report and click OK.
    If you select a Correlation Analysis from the list, a warning message pops up to indicate that the analysis cannot be integrated in the report because it is not supported.
    The selected analysis/analyses are listed in the table in the Analysis List section.
    Overview of the Analysis List section.
    The Refresh and Refresh All check boxes are selected by default. This means that the analyses in the list will be executed before generating the report and thus you guarantee having the latest results in your report if any of the analyses was modified meanwhile. Otherwise clear the check box next to the analysis you do not want to execute before generating the report.
    Another benefit of selecting these check boxes is that the analysis summary for each of the listed analyses, for example the indicator values and the execution time and duration, will be updated in the Talend Studio repository. You can access the analysis summary in the Analysis Results section of the analysis editor.
    Overview of the Analysis Summary section.
    However, the analysis information in the repository and thus in the Analysis Summary view will not be updated when you generate reports using a report script or using the tDqReportRun component. These two ways of generating reports will store the analysis latest values in the data mart and will show them in the report itself but will not update the analysis values in the repository.
    For further information on using a report script to generate reports, see Generating and exporting a report Job.
    For further information on using tDqReportRun to generate reports, see Generating a Job to launch a report.
  3. Optional: Right-click an analysis in the list and select Edit Analysis from the contextual menu to open the analysis in the analysis editor. Modify the analysis metadata and save your changes.
  4. In the Template type column, click the arrow and then select a template type for the generated report as the following:
    Option Results
    Basic Generate a report that provides the statistics collected by the analysis selected in a given report.
    Evolution Generate an evolution report that provides information showing the evolution through time of the simple statistic indicators of the analyses selected in a given report. This report allows you to compare current and historical statistics to determine the improvement or degradation of the analyzed data.
    User defined Use a personalized report created with the JasperReport reporting tool and imported in Talend Studio.

    When you select User defined as the template for the report to generate, you must click the Browse... button next to the field and set the path to the JRXML template imported into the current Talend Studio instance. This path points to where the JRXML template is saved in the DQ Repository of Talend Studio. This browse button will only browse the JRXML templates in the Talend Studio repository and not in your file system.

    For further information on managing JRXML templates see Using JRXML templates in Talend Studio.
