Web Server

[Requires Enterprise Edition]

The Web Server window allows you to control a web server used to show dynamic HTML reports.

Dynamic HTML reports require the .NET Framework 4 which can be downloaded for free.

If you use Windows 8 or Windows Server 2012, you may need to enable ASP.NET in Windows settings according to the instructions.

You can specify user name and password in report URL to avoid entering them manually. Examples: http://127.0.0.1:9991/Login.aspx?username=user&password=pwd, http://127.0.0.1:9991/Login.aspx?ReturnUrl=/Report.aspx?id=1&username=user&password=pwd

If you use Internet Explorer and it cannot connect to the server, you may need to add the server address to the Trusted Sites zone in the Internet Explorer settings (Internet Options > Security).

It is possible to use either the built-in server or IIS to host the reports.

Built-in Web Server

The built-in web server works as a system service. You can set the IP address and port of the web server.

You can set an option to use "localhost" instead of "127.0.0.1" in report URLs. It may be necessary to access reports in Internet Explorer 11 under Windows 8 and newer with the default settings.

You can assign a domain name to the server IP address using an external DNS server to access the reports by domain.

IIS Web Server

You can use the IIS web server instead of the built-in one to host the dynamic HTML reports. IIS has more capabilities than the built-in server, e.g. it supports HTTPS.

You need to set up a site for reports in IIS manually according to the instructions and then enter site URL in this dialog.

Examples: http://127.0.0.1:80/, https://reports.domain.com/

Users and Profiles

You can manage users that can view profiles and specify which profiles should be published on the web server.

Profiles are published on the web server during analysis if they contain the "web server" report destination. The report destination can be added either manually by editing the profile properties, or by marking profile for publishing in the web server settings.

User names and passwords may contain Latin letters, digits, . (dot), - (minus sign) and _ (underscore) characters. User names are case insensitive while passwords are case sensitive.

 

You can also change additional web server settings in the program options.
