Subscriptions

With Contour BI Portal, users self-serve reports by means of Subscriptions.

By subscribing to reports, users receive reports or links to reports in the specified formats and for the specified periods.

In this article we learn how to create Subscriptions following a step by step example.

Report Parameters

Reports are fed with input data that can be displayed and then further filtered in the Views. With parameters the data is filtered before the report is created.

Connections

Business Intelligence projects can be created and visualized locally or stored in servers. The design tool Contour Reporter can be connected to one or any number of BI Portal servers to create, edit, and view BI Projects.
