Managing Report Templates

Silk Central offers a variety of pre-installed reports that let you quickly and easily transform data into presentation-quality information for analysis. The default reports can be customized with either Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Word, or BIRT, an Eclipse-based, open source reporting tool for Web applications. You can also use these tools to create entirely new reports.

Because shared global reports are available in all projects for all users, user roles that are able to update and delete them require special permissions: Manage shared global reports and Delete shared global reports. These permissions also apply to report templates that are used in shared global reports. Non-shared global reports and report templates can be updated and deleted by user roles with the standard report permissions for updating and deleting reports.

Silk Central reports do not support bitmap (.bmp) image file format. For proper display, images must be in JPEG, GIF, or PNG format.
