Applications → Working with Forms → Customizing Forms → Managing Form Behavior → Using Form Widgets → Using the Embedded Report Widget
The Embedded Report widget shows an SBM report on a transition, state, or print form. Because the report is embedded, users can view relevant information without having to navigate away from the form. For example, when the Embedded Report widget is based on a relational field, fields in a related item can be displayed in the widget.
Defined in SBM Composer as an application report run against a primary or auxiliary table.
Defined in SBM Composer as a report of related items based on specific relational fields.
For details on configuring reports for the widget, refer to Embedded Report Configuration Dialog Box.
When you embed a report defined in SBM Work Center, you should use a special report URL that contains a report reference name. This preserves the report URL if the process app is promoted to another environment (such as a production environment).
If you do not use the report reference name, the report URL will contain a report ID and field IDs (for Query at Runtime fields). Report IDs and QAR field IDs change when a process app is promoted to another environment, so the report will not work in the new environment.
To reference a report:
"&HasRuntimeParams=1&F_TS_CONTACT="...and bind form field values to the query-at-runtime parameters.
For example, if you added the Contact field to the form, you could bind the value of that field to the &F_TS_CONTACT= parameter, and the report on the form would show all the defects for this contact.
"&HasRuntimeParams=1&F_TS_CONTACT="...and not bind form field values to the query-at-runtime parameters.
In this example, the report engine runs the report as if no value was selected in the query-at-runtime parameter for the report, and that part of the report query is ignored when building the report.
