    I am using the stand alone Report Designer and trdp reports. The report parameters come from the application's database, and each client has their own database. The application reads new trdp files and adds report parameters, including indicating simple data types--string, integer, etc. Some report parameters are more complex--e.g. an "Account Super Search" function. I am looking for a way to consistently install these more complex parameters without sql scripts or user intervention. Is there a place in the trdp file to embed metadata? I could include the default report parameter data types in a json string and have the application read that metadata.

    Hello Valerie,

    The supported types for the report parameters are Boolean, DateTime, Integer, Float, String. Although custom types are not supported, you can still use expressions based on data fields and custom functions in the properties of the report items or in data-retrieval methods.

    In case, the suggested approach does not help let us know the additional details about the required scenario.
