    I am new to BIRT and sql. I am trying to configure BIRT designer in my system , I am facing few problem to configure BIRT.

    1. Do we require special permission to configure/use BIRT in our jama server.
    2. Is it required to install Contour application in my system (I am not using Jama server system)?.

    Hello Sharan,
    I didn't find any documentation stating that a user needed special permissions to use/design BIRT reports in Jama. Here is a link that will hopefully answer the 2nd question.
    Here are some other links on reports.

    Hi Sharan,

    normally to install a development environment for birt reports you just need to download an eclipse with BIRT designer from Eclipse BIRT Project  and then connect to your database through the data source (you will need a driver suitable for the database you are using as well as db url and the user credentials, you are connecting to the database).
