Browsing Versions

You can view the version information of a resource via its version table in the Resources page of the server console.

  • To view the version information of a single resource, browse to the folder where the resource is located, then:
    • Put the mouse pointer over the resource row and select the Version button Version button on the floating toolbar.
    • Right-click in the resource row and select Version from the shortcut menu.
    • Select the resource row and select Tools > Version on the task bar.

    Report Server displays the version table of the resource.

  • To view the version information of multiple resources at a time, browse to the folder where the resources are saved, select the check boxes ahead of the required resources (to view the version information of all the resources, select the top check box), then select Tools > Version on the task bar, or right-click in any selected resource row and select Version from the shortcut menu. Report Server displays the version table for multiple resources.

Version Tables

Relevant information about the versions that a resource hosts, such as the version date and version number, is collected in a table called the version table. You can also use URL commands to directly access the version table of a specific resource.

Version Table

The following shows the columns contained in the version tables of different resource types.

Catalog Version table

Column Description
Version Date The date and time of when the version is generated. You can sort the versions by version date.
NLS Editor Administrators can edit NLS for a specified catalog version by selecting the corresponding link.
Version Number The serial ID that identifies a version in the version table.

Report Version table

Column Description
Version Date The date and time of when the version is generated. You can sort the versions by version date.
NLS Editor Administrators can edit NLS for a specified report version by selecting the corresponding link.

  • To download the output of a report result version, do any of the following:
    • Put the mouse pointer over the version row and select the Download button Download button on the floating toolbar.
    • Select the version row and select Edit > Download on the task bar.
    • Select the version row, right-click in the row and select Download on the shortcut menu.

    Then, if the report result version contains only one output file, the file will be sent to the web browser for downloading; if the version contains multiple output files, Logi Report Server will add all the files into a zip file and send the zip file to the web browser for downloading.

  • To download the output of multiple report result versions at a time, select the version rows, then select Edit > Download on the task bar or right-click in any version row and select Download from the shortcut menu. Logi Report Server will then put all the output files of the selected versions into one zip file, with the output files of each version stored in a separate subfolder, and send the zip file to the web browser for downloading.
