Does anyone have an example that will generate a report as PDF using the sdk? The SDK.pdf only has html examples. I can't figure it out. I'm using a c# controller to call cognos to generate the report.
Note: Esri Maps for IBM Cognos has been retired effective February 01, 2019 [PDF] and is no longer available for download. If you have already downloaded Esri Maps for IBM Cognos, you can continue to use it. Read more about its product lifecycle support status.
Jaspersoft / Advanced Reporting reports are not exported via PDF when using Chrome. Initially, a "Failed - Network Error" message appears. Then, when selecting the option to resume the download, a "Failed - Server problem" error is thrown. Unable to save Jasper Report.
This article describes how Firefox handles downloaded files for different types of content, such as saving a file or opening an application installed on your computer, and how you can change that behavior.
When you click on a link to download a file, you may see a dialog asking whether you want to save the file or open it with a specific application, if there is no download action already set for that file type. Thethe Media type, also called the MIME type or Content type, as configured by the web server, will determine what action Firefox will take.
When you tell Firefox to open or save a file and also check the option "Do this automatically for files like this from now on" in the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt,If Firefox does not have a set download action for a type of file, Firefox will save the file by default. If you select Always Open Similar Files in the Downloads panel right-click context menu for the file, (see below) a new Content Type and Action entry will be added to the General panel Applications section of Firefox settings.
When you click on a link to download a file and Firefox doesn't have a content type and download action set up for that type of file, Firefox will save the file by default. If you want Firefox to ask you what to do with these downloads, you can go to the bottom of the Applications section under What should Firefox do with other files? and select Ask whether to open or save files.
Starting in Firefox version 101, when you choose Ask whether to open or save files in Firefox settings under Applications (as shown above) and you download a file with no defined content type and action, you will see a What should Firefox do with this file? prompt. When you choose an action and also select the option, Do this automatically for files like this from now on, a new Content Type and Action entry will be added to the Applications list for that type of file. See the "What should Firefox do with this file?" prompt section below, for more information.
When you select Always Open Similar Files from the context menu for a downloaded item, the file will open in the system default application and a new Content Type entry will be added to the Applications section of Firefox settings, with the download action set to use that application. The next time you download that type of file and open the context menu, the Always Open Similar Files option will be check marked.
If you change the action for a defined file type to Always ask or if you select Ask whether to open or save files for other files not listed in the Applications section of Firefox settings (see above), you will see a What should Firefox do with this file? prompt for those downloaded files.
If you are having problems with how Firefox is handling file downloads that you can't resolve, or if you just want to start fresh, you can restore the default content types and actions by refreshing Firefox. To learn more, see Refresh Firefox - reset add-ons and settings.
The process and options for downloading content and formatting downloaded content vary based on whether you're downloading from a Look or an Explore, from a dashboard, from a legacy dashboard, or from a merged results query.
While choosing your data format for downloading, if you don't see the HTML or PNG (image of visualization) options (for Looks), talk to your Looker admin about installing the appropriate version of the Chromium renderer for your Looker instance.
For Looker developers, if you are in Development Mode, data downloads in most file formats query your model as it is in Development Mode. PDF and PNG file formats are the exception; data downloads in those file formats always query your model as if it is in Production Mode.
If you choose With visualization options applied, Looker applies some of the visualization settings to your download. Any of the following settings in the Plot, Series, and Formatting menus that are configured for the visualization will be applied to the data download:
If you choose As displayed in the data table, visualization options will not be applied and the download will appear like the data table in the Data section of the Look or Explore.
When you click Run in a Look or an Explore, Looker checks your permissions and determines whether the complexity of the query and the database dialect will allow the entire query to be downloaded. If you have the permissions (for results above a set limit) and if Looker determines that your entire query can be downloaded, the All Results option will be available in the Download window.
When you select All Results, you may also see the option to Remove all sorts from query. This option prevents sorting on your query before you download the results. Selecting this option may speed up your download, since sorting a query can be costly to performance for certain database types.
When you are downloading a large result set in Looker using Google BigQuery as your database dialect and you select All Results, you may see the Allow large results option. This is because Google BigQuery has a maximum response size for query results, as described in the Write query results Google Cloud documentation topic. In order to download results that exceed the BigQuery maximum response size, Looker must perform a different process.
You can enter a filename for the download or use the default filename that is pre-populated in the field. Looker will automatically append the appropriate file extension based on your selection in the File Format field.
You can download your entire dashboard as a PDF, which means you will get a PDF that displays the dashboard title, any dashboard filters, some or all dashboard tiles, and the time zone the dashboard was run in. The PDF will also include a timestamp that shows when the dashboard was downloaded.
When you're downloading a dashboard as a PDF, the PDF will display the new dashboard experience or a legacy dashboard, depending on the permanent format of the dashboard. In other words, if you are temporarily viewing the dashboard in a different format because you changed the URL, any downloads will reflect the permanent format.
Select or leave unselected Expand tables to show all rows. If you select this option, for dashboard tiles that use table visualizations, the PDF will show all the rows that are available in the table visualization, not just the rows that are visible in the dashboard tile thumbnail. If you do not select this option, only the rows that are visible in the thumbnail without scrolling will appear in the PDF. Dashboard and query filters will still apply, as will visualization settings such as row limits, column limits, and settings that are made with the Limit Displayed Rows option.If the Expand Tables to Show All Rows option is selected, dashboard tiles that contain table visualizations may look slightly different in downloaded PDFs than they do inside Looker. The following differences may be noticeable in the PDF:
If your Looker admin has enabled the Render Long Tables Labs feature and the Expand Tables to Show All Rows option is selected, tiles containing table visualizations may look slightly different in downloaded PDFs than they do inside Looker. To learn more about the differences, visit the Labs documentation page.
You can download all the query tiles from your dashboard as a zipped collection of CSV files. Text tiles are not included in the ZIP file. To download your dashboard as a collection of CSV files, follow these steps:
When you download a dashboard as CSV files, the options for formatting downloads, such as setting custom row limits or choosing all results, are unavailable. The row limits in the downloaded files correlate to the row limits on the corresponding tiles.
You cannot download the data from dashboard tiles based on merged results queries, but the data from merged results tiles is included if you download a dashboard as a PDF or as a collection of CSV files.
This opens a dialog box with several options that are are similar to those for a Look or an Explore and for a legacy dashboard tile download. Expand the Advanced data options menu to see all available options for your download:
You can specify how much data is included in your download in this section. In most tiles, this section of the download pop-up is named Number of rows to include; if the tile query contains any pivoted dimensions, this section is named Number of rows and columns to include.
