IBM Rational ClearQuest offers data-pull reporting with BIRT. This reporting gives you a wide variety of reporting options. However, there is a limitation in BIRT that prevents multiple value selections from getting passed onto reports. A video that is available on IBM Education Assistant for Rational and the IBM Rational Support YouTube channel helps you work around this problem. In additional to walking you through a couple of different parameter configurations, there is a demonstration of a script that enables the passing of multiple report parameters.
Here is information on accessing the videos...
