Overview of Clients


The Interactive Reporting service offers three distinct clients to allow users to create and/or run queries. Each client has different levels of functionality and different levels of installation complexity.

Which Client Should I Use?

The Web Plug-In is the recommended client for UWM Query Library Users.

The standalone (non-Web based) Studio client is only suitable for users that have a collection of queries stored outside of the Query Library. The Studio client requires installation of the Oracle Client (contact UWM Help Desk), UWM tnsnames.ora, and Hyperion Open Catalog Extensions (oces)
