IFrame Integration

The simplest way to integrate reports with a third party web application is to present the reports inside an IFrame. A report embedded in an IFrame can be freely viewed and manipulated, even when the report engine runs in a separate container. This eliminates the need for a proxy.

The basic syntax for integrating an individual report into an IFrame is shown below, where ReportName is the name of the desired report, and remotehost is the remote server name:

<iframe src="http://remotehost:8080/sree/
    Reports?op=frameReplet&name=ReportName&outtype=REPORT"> 
<p>Text for obsolete browsers.</p> 
</iframe>

Similarly, a viewsheet can also be loaded in an IFrame via a simple URL.

<iframe src="http://remotehost:8080/sree/
    Reports?op=vs&path=/ViewsheetName">
 <p>Text for obsolete browsers.</p>
 </iframe>

The path should start with the username for a user scope viewsheet. Also, an identifier parameter can be provided in place of path, and an edit=true parameter can be used to load the viewsheet in the Visual Composer.
