Summary: this page describes the CAST Report Generator Core release.


CAST Report Generator is now provided as an OS agnostic ZIP file alongside the traditional Microsoft Windows GUI "installable" release. In other words this release can run on both Microsoft Windows and Linux operating systems and can be simply unzipped to the install location (no installer is provided). 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).

Where can I obtain the CAST Report Generator Core?

You can obtain the CAST Report Generator Core from the CAST Product Center - this requires a CAST login.
