How to Configure Report Scheduler to work on your Jasper Server

Another BI technology I'm exploring right now is Jaspersoft. It's a powerful Open Source BI tool which is a bit similar to Oracle Hyperion. And since it uses Open Source technology, this means it's way cheaper and easier to sell. lol

Going back to the topic, I'd like to share how easy it is to configure your Jasper Server to use it's report scheduler facility.

Step 1 :
Look for your Web-Inf folder from your Jaspersoft folder. I'm using Jaspersoft's later version (3.7) so mine is located at ..\jasperserver-pro-3.7\apache-tomcat\webapps\jasperserver-pro\WEB-INF .

Step 2:
At the file, add your smtp and email credentials. If you are using gmail, be sure to use the 587 port as 465 port does not work well with gmail.

For example : your mail server ( for gmail)
report.scheduler.mail.sender.username= your email's username
report.scheduler.mail.sender.password= your email's password
report.scheduler.mail.sender.from= your email address

report.scheduler.web.deployment.uri=http://localhost:8080/jasperserver-pro (This url should be the same url you see when you open your Jasperserver login page. You only need to remove login.php)

Step 3 (Optional) :

If you'de like to increase your thread pool, you may do so by modifying the file .

Locate the line org.quartz.threadPool.threadCount and increase the thread count.

For example:
org.quartz.threadPool.threadCount = 3

Step 4 :
At the applicationContext-report-scheduling.xml file, locate the bean id reportSchedulerMailSender . Modify and add the following prop key under the property javaMailProperties.

For Example :

prop key="mail.smtp.auth">true
prop key="mail.smtp.starttls.enable">true

Step 5:
Restart your Jasperserver and schedule your report =)



  1. Thanks! Step 4 was all that I was missing, but I would have had a difficult time finding it w/o your post.

  2. Hi

    I have to extract 28 tables from MS SQL Server 2000 using jaspersoft etl, transfrom them and load them onto a Mysql database. The question is:

    Does this mean creating 28 jobs? This I know how to do.

    Or can I extract them in one job? If so how?

  3. Hi Rumbi, you can create one job to do all the transformation.
