ZENworks Reporting 8.1.1 Appliance is an incremental release, which replaces the ZENworks Reporting 7.8.x Appliance.
IMPORTANT:In ZENworks Reporting 8.1.1 release, use port 443 for Jaspersoft and 9443 to access the ZENworks Reporting console.
It is recommended that the Reporting Appliance is upgraded/migrated to ZENworks Reporting 8.1.1, as the latest version includes various enhancements and security upgrades, which are explained in the following sections:
1.1 ZENworks Reporting 8.1.1
Changes in ZENworks Reporting 8.1.1 include the following:
Enhancements have been made to ZENworks and ZENworks Audit Domains, including the introduction of the Edit, Cut, and Delete options for Domains, Datasources, and Predefined Ad Hoc Views and Reports. However, it is strongly recommended to exercise caution while editing or deleting Domains and Datasources, as it could potentially disrupt the proper functioning of reports or views.
To view data in the cross tab visualization, it is now necessary to select at least one measure. This change ensures a more accurate representation of data.
There are multiple UI/UX updates through the Ad Hoc Designer
When creating Cross tabs for the first time, there is a new pop-up window: Add a measure to continue. Nothing will appear on the canvas until you start adding measures.
The Cross tab now fills the entire width of the canvas so that columns can be wider. Previously, column widths were automatically sized to fit its content.
Expand/collapse behavior for rows now expands or collapses per cell, instead of automatically expanding or collapsing the subsequent cells.
For very wide canvases or Cross tabs, the scrolling is now on the Cross tab itself, instead of on the canvas.
The Preview toggle button is now moved from the toolbar to an Editing/Viewing toggle button on the Title bar in the top-right of the window.
For Charts, you can now switch between Sample Data, Full Data, or No Data. Previously, the option was only available for Cross tabs and table visualization types.
Users now have the ability to mark their resources as favorite ones so that they can easily find them. For more information, refer to the JasperReports® Server documentation.
This feature enable users to:
Designate a resource as a favorite
Remove the favorite designation from a resource
See a list of all favorites
Admin Console Beta

Server Monitoring now includes Ad Hoc Views with information about all scheduled report executions (successful or failed).
Views can also be used in Dashboards or to create reports.
ZENworks Reporting Admins see all data for their instances and the data displayed is only for their organization.
