You can rename the JRXML templates or template folder in the studio. You can also drop templates in different folders under JRXML Template or delete them completely from the studio.

How to change the path of a JRXML template

You can move a template from one folder to another under JRXML Template. If this template is used to generate a report file, the template path in the report editor will be automatically updated to its new path in the DQ Repository.

Prerequisite(s):At least one JRXML template is imported or created in the Profiling perspective of the studio.

To move a JRXML template to a given folder, do the following:

  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, expand Libraries > JRXML Template.

  2. Drag a template from its initial folder and drop it in another folder.

    If the template is used to generate a report file, the template path is updated accordingly in the report editor.

    Note

    If you get a warning message when trying to generate a report file about a JRXML template not accessible or not existing, browse to the renamed folder or template in the report editor and regenerate the report.

How to duplicate or create a JRXML template

To avoid creating a template from scratch, you can duplicate an existing one and work around its metadata and definition to have a new template and use it to generate reports.

Prerequisite(s): At least one template is imported in the Profiling perspective of the studio.

To duplicate or create a template, do the following:

  1. In the DQ Repository tree view, expand Libraries> JRXML Templates.

  2. Right-click a template and select Duplicate.

  3. In the open dialog box, give the template a name and click OK.

    The template is listed under JRXML Templates.

  4. Double-click the template to open it in the studio and modify its definition according to your needs.

  5. Save the new template.
