If Windchill administrators have notified you they require both Global Configurations and Jazz Reporting Service or IBM Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager (RELM) services, there is a final task you need to perform before completing your configuration: making sure Report Builder (RB) has an LQE data source supporting configurations, otherwise RB users won't be able to build reports based on a given configuration.
Official RB documentation says RB should get this configuration-aware data source (called LQE scoped by a configuration) automatically since the moment the first DNG or RQM project is Configuration Management enabled; however, if by some reason this data source is not available, you need to enable it on your own.
To check whether LQE scoped by a configuration data source is available:
Connect to data sourcearea, expand the
Select a default data sourcecombo.
If LQE scoped by a configuration data source is listed, there is nothing else to do. Otherwise:
Connect to data sourcelabel within the area the
Select a default data sourcecombo is.
Select a default data sourcecombo again.
This time, LQE scoped by a configuration must be listed. This is the data source RB users need to use when like to build reports based on a configuration.
