Reports without references to a specification do not appear in report management, but are handled as released reports after the assignment of a generation variant to the report template and appear directly in the report information system.



A user with authorization for the rating PUBLIC can only display entries that originated from generation variants rated as PUBLIC only.

    1. Edit value assignments including usage and active indicator in specification management (see Specification Editing).

  1. In the specification management hit list, you can generate a test report from a report template that contains specification symbols to test the layout and print the report as required. The report template must have the status Released or In work.
