    I'm told CABI is the new way to view any Jasperserver content.  I have a lot of reports created using iReport and available in our current Unified Reports portlet in UMP. 

    I have played around with it a little in our new CA-UIM 8.5.1 environment.  Don't immediately find a way to show a folder view of reports.  What are others doing to use the new CABI?  Are you still using Unified Reports too?

    You are right CABI is the new UR. (you can even still use iReport if you like but you should use Jaspersoft studio as it has more features.)

    You can bring the reports that you've created in UR into CABI.

    I don't have the details to hand but I will update this thread in the next day or so.

    Thanks for the quick reply.  Where can I download the Jaspersoft Studio software?  Looking forward to more details.

    Thanks again.

    If you created your old reports via iReport, you can create, from the same iReport, a connection to CABI:

    You can than browse the folder structure:

    Note: the folder: Custom is the one that I created to put my reports in.

    Now you are ready to open your old reports and to add them into CABI.

    When you go to cabi: http://your_server/cabijs and login with superuser and use the View - Repository option you will see the same folder structure:
