    Koha Plugin

    The Koha plugin, developed by Paul Derscheid at LMSCloud, is necessary for the bulk import and export of report PAKS. Additionally, your Koha instance must have the public REST-API enabled with Basic Authentication. We are currently working on a plugin that will support API Key Authorization for future use.

    Report PAKS

    You don't need to know how to create Jasper reports to benefit from Koha-Jasper. Simply download pre-existing report PAKS and import them into your Koha-Jasper. With the plugin active, these reports will be automatically created in the JASPER tab of your Koha reports section.

    Lightwave Library will try to provide the source code for all report PAKS as *.JRXML files. You will only need these files if you wish to customize an imported report.
