  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • With data push reporting and Crystal Reports, CQ queries are
    created
    and tied to the report to gather the data.  Those queries can be
    interactive requesting dynamic query data from the user.
    
    The data pull reporting using BIRT has similiar capability such
    that
    the user can be prompted for data.   However, when the prompt is
    for
    something like states or products where it is pulling the
    choices from
    a stateless record, it does not seem to be possible to select
    multiple
    values and pass it through to the data set definition.

    ClearQuest Web BIRT reports do not allow arrays of values to
    be passed as parameters for a dynamic query.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearQuest 8.0.0.9 and 8.0.1.2.
    
    ClearQuest Reporting Driver was modified to support
    processing of parameters with multiple values. Special
    design considerations apply when constructing BIRT reports
    that require this capability.
