Interactive Reports

Interactive Reporting provides you with an interface that allows you to add elements to your report layout.

This section explains how to use Interactive Reporting features, including:

The data source for an Interactive Report is based on a metadata model. User Console Metadata removes the need for you to know query languages, such as SQL. Queries are generated based on the metadata selection. The metadata model allows you to create an Interactive Report without knowing the complexities of the database structure. Some examples of metadata include the names of tables and columns. Also included are the relationships between columns and tables, security, and access rules.
