Today I show you how easy it is to build your own report in ARIS Cloud Advanced. To do so you can use a "what you see is what you get (WYSIWYG)" editor.

Open the java based administrator tool that is available in the advanced edition. Select a folder and right click on your mouse to create a new report.



Now you can enter a name, a description and decide if the report should be available in ARIS Cloud immediately or if it should be published later.


In  my example I would like to iterate over a set of groups and output the name of the models contained in those groups. First, I select “Group” as the context while creating the report. This means that the report can be run for a selected list of groups.



Next step are the output formats that should be available for my report. I select .doc and .pdf as output formats.


Then I have to define the page settings and finish the configuration.


Now the report opens and I can do detailed configuration.


To output all models of the selected groups,I define a query. This query is a subordinate query that searches through the selected groups.

I select the section into which I want to insert a query.

Right-click and select “Insert/Query”. You can set queries for both the repetition area and the static area of each section.

To output all models of the selected groups with their name, I need a query for the repetition area. Therefore I enable the "Has repetitions" option.

Under 'Available data', I select 'Model list (filterable by type)' and click on the 'Add to repetition' button. You can insert only one query into the repetition area.


I click  the "Next" button and "Finish".

The query will be inserted into the selected area.

To output the relevant names, I insert the corresponding data fields.

The data field should output all model names and their associated group name.

I select 'Name' in the 'Select data' field, then I click  the 'Next' button and then  'Finish'. Now the data field shows the text '{Selected groups.Model list (filterable by type).Name}'.

To specify the output, I add the  prefix 'Model name:'  in front of '{Selected groups.Model list (filterable by type).Name}'.

To output the name of the group another data field is required. The procedure is the same as the one described above. Here, I insert a data field with the path 'Group – Name'

I click "Next" and "Finish"


Now the report is finished. To see the results I save and run my report now.

I select the database and the groups and run the report to shows all selected groups with their models.  


In the next step I select .doc as the output format.



Here you see my results :)
