Turning off the Emailing of Blank Reports

Stat reports are configured to bring up a blank page with a report title if there is no data. This is intended to demonstrate to the user that the report actually ran. Some sites however may not want Stat to email blank reports.

Stat report files (.jrxml files) are stored on the Stat Central agent under Stat_home/report/%category%/format. The subfolder they are stored under is named the same as the Report Category drop down listing on the Stat Report Wizard. Under each category subfolder the .jrxml files are located in the /format folder.

Each report has a file name that starts with dw_ and has a .jrxml extension. The linkage between the file name and the report name is in the STAT_REPORT_DEFN table.

Select DESCR, DW_NAME, CATEGORY from STAT_REPORT_DEFN where DESCR like '%Report name from Stat Report Wizard%' will give you the file name that needs to be modified.

As with customized reports, if you modify the .jrxml file in situ it may be overridden the next time you upgrade Stat. If this is a concern, then follow the procedure for creating a custom report which places a copy of the .jrxml file in the stat_home/report/custom directory/format folder and add the custom report to the Stat repository.

In Report Properties View, open the Advanced tab, scroll down to the option When No Data and change the value from All Sections, No Detail to No Pages.

Version Control Management Connection Maintenance

You can integrate Stat with your 3rd party version control management (VCM) system. This allows you to save your file objects from a VCM repository directly into Stat to control the process and the migration of the objects. Currently Stat supports the following VCM platforms: SVN, PVCS, Perforce, and CVS.

VCM Maintenance security is controlled by the following user class rights:

The 3rd Party Version Control Connection maintenance table is displayed in a standard maintenance window. To open this window, select Maintenance | General | VCM Connect.

Options include CVS, PVCS, SVN, P4, GIT, and TFS.
Click Apply to save your work.

IMPORTANT: When users add file objects from a VCM repository to an archive set, a VCM-specific field is displayed in the Archive Set window (Revision for SVN and P4, Tag/Branch for CVS and Git, Label for PVCS, and Version for TFS). In this field users can override the default value specified by system administrators by specifying the particular version of the objects they want to add from the VCM repository. If left blank, Stat adds the most recent version of the objects in the repository.

Service Domain-Specific Maintenance

Working With Service Domains

Service domain-specific maintenance tables are displayed in standard maintenance windows, which by default display information regarding your default service domain. You can switch to a different service domain by selecting it in the Domain field located at the top of each window.

Any value you specify in a service domain maintenance table pertains only to the service domain displayed in the Domain field. For example, users working in the Human Resources service domain are not affected by any changes you make to a table pertaining to the Change Control service domain. You can, however, specify the same value for two or more service domains. This is because Stat invisibly prefixes service domain codes to each value, thereby uniquely identifying them in the system. For example, let’s say you define a CSR status named “URG” (for urgent) in both the Change Control and the Human Resources service domains; even though they appear the same to users working in both service domains, internally Stat distinguishes them by the code prefixes of their respective service domains, “CHG-URG” and “HR-URG.”

User class rights control access to each service domain-specific maintenance table. Since you can have a different user class for each service domain, you may have access to a table for one service domain but not for another. It is recommended that system administrators have user class rights to all tables.
