Repository Functions

Top Previous Next

Repository functions are available under Repository menu of main window.

Here, you can register new repositories, switch between registered repositories, and work with lists of registered repositories and databases.

Clear Saved Database Passwords

Each time the database was successfully opened, and if the password was required to open it, then this password can be saved by using a special option of Open Database dialog. If the password was saved, then the next time the database will be opened without needing to input the password. This function allows to clear all such saved passwords.

The same function is also available under Repository | Registered Databases... menu.

Registered Repositories and Databases

When opening any report repository or database, Reportizer registers it in the list of used repositories or databases. These lists can be accessed from Repository menu. The application uses the lists each time it opens a repository or database.

You can copy the lists, delete records from them, and clear stored database passwords.

For databases, there is a possibility to edit their connection parameters. For repositories, editing their properties (except name) is not allowed; if you need to reconfigure a repository, you have to delete and then recreate it.

Workspace file

The lists of the registered repositories and databases (along with their connection parameters) are saved to workspace file rptizer.workspace of the {Local AppData}\Vitaliy Levchenko\{Software Name}\{Software Version}\Settings folder.

The workspace file is saved when the application is closing. Please consider this information when working with multiple instances of the application.

When the application is restarting, the lists are loaded from rptizer.workspace into operating memory and used to open the previously opened repositories and databases.

Exporting and importing the workspace

This functionality is the same for both Registered Repositories and Registered Databases windows, because the lists of the registered repositories and databases share the same workspace.

Using Import and Export buttons, you can import or export the workspace from/to another file, respectively. This functionality can be used for the following purposes:

Important Notes

  1. When importing the workspace, all existing entries from the current workspace are deleted. So, make sure to backup your workspace (using Export button) before the importing another workspace.
  2. After exchanging workspace between applications on different computers, the database passwords stored in the imported workspace might become invalid and you will have to reenter them.
  3. After importing the workspace from 32-bit version to 64-bit version and vice versa, some registered database entries might become unusable due to architecture mismatch.
  4. It is recommended that the application importing the workspace was the same version as application from where the workspace was exported.
