Generic Reporting Framework
The Generic Reporting Framework Bazaar plugin facilitates the creations of reports on records held within an EPrints repository that can be configured to return records based on certain criteria and to validate these records based on given test criteria.
The Generic Reporting Framework adds a new link to the key tools bar (alongside links such as 'Manage Deposits' and 'Admin') called 'Reports', that is only shown to administrator users.
This link displays the Reports splashpage from which any available reports may be selected.
Once a report has been selected the page will reload to display the results of that report. This process may take a short while if there are lots of records to process. Items on this page are typically displayed next to a red or green bar to indicate whether or not the record matches this reports compliance check, along with some bullet points that should provide further information.
The Generic Reporting Framework plugin is installed with a couple of example report plugins to illustrate how to create a new report.
