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. Interactive Reporting users should use this document to determine the best client option for their situations.

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)
