The folder structure is the way reports are presented to the user. Plan the folder structure in a way that it is logical for the end-user. With folders, you can classify reports into different categories.
Folder permissions determine which users/user groups can see and open the folder.
In order not to clutter the user's view with the Admin reports (statistics, maintenance, etc.) these reports can be placed in a folder accessible only by the admin.
Linked reports often contain parameters that are derived from the data of the report they are connected to. These reports are not intended to be used directly (lack of control on the input parameters). By placing the linked reports in hidden folders, this can be avoided.
When attaching a new report to the report structure, myDBR searches for the stored procedures that have the myDBR report prefix (as set in Environmental settings) and have not yet been attached to the structure and lets you choose the one to be added. You can invoke the SQL Editor and create a new report procedure.
Once the report is added to the myDBR, the report parameters and report privileges can be added.
