Installation prerequisites


CAST Report Generator Core only requires that .NET Core runtime is present on the operating system. Therefore any operating system that supports the installation of .NET Core can be used for the CAST Report Generator Core. CAST has tested Microsoft Windows and CentOS (Linux).

Using CAST Report Generator Core

As mentioned previously, the primary goal of this release is to provide reporting capabilities to the CAST RestAPI - this integration is first and foremost used by the CAST dashboards to generate reports from within the dashboard interface (see CAST Dashboard Package - Release Notes - 1.9.0). However, it is also possible to use CAST Report Generator Core yourself via its CLI. The CLI instructions are identical to those provided for the standard CAST Report Generator GUI - see here for more instructions.

You must specify the CAST Report Generator Core in a specific way:

Code Block
dotnet %path_to_CastReporting.Console.Core.dll% -webservice %webservice%  -username %username% -password %password% -application %application% -domain %domain% -template %template% -file %file%

For example:

Code Block
dotnet "D:\data\CAST\ReportGeneratorCore\CastReporting.Console.Core.dll" -webservice "http://<server>:<port>/CAST-RESTAPI/rest/" -username cio -password cast -application "Jurassic Park" -domain "AED" -template "Executive-summary.docx" -file "D:\temp\Core_Report.docx"
