Upgrading cloud services to version 2024.2


In the new version of FastReport Cloud and FastReport Corporate Server, we have worked on quality, fixed bugs, and added some new features.


Bulk copying and moving

API methods that allow for copying and moving multiple files and folders at once are added. Previously, one had to make multiple queries to copy each file. Now one query is enough. This saves network resources and makes copying faster and more convenient.


An example of a template copy query:



Alternative method of uploading files to the cloud

An optimized method for uploading templates (/api/rp/v2/Templates/Folder/{id}/File) and reports (/api/rp/v2/Reports/Folder/{id}/File) has been added. The new method, unlike the first version, accepts a binary file and thus saves resources. The v1 download methods are marked as obsolete and are not recommended for use.

The method of changing the content of already loaded templates is also updated: /api/rp/v2/Templates/File/{id}/Content.


RichText preview in Online Designer

Starting with the current version of FastReport Cloud, Online Designer supports the ability to preview RichText objects.

Style templates for ChartObject in Online Designer

You can now select preset style templates when editing charts.

Ability to share files via a link

We have added functionality that allows for sharing any files via a link.

Previously, it was possible to open access to the file to any anonymous users. Access can now be restricted with a key added to the link.

To use the access key, it is enough to pass the accessKey parameter, equal to the value of the Key field of the key, with the query. In this case, the user (even an anonymous one) will receive all the rights that this key grants for the time of the query.


Editing a user’s avatar

Added a button to change the user avatar and a default image in case the avatar is unavailable.

New Recycle Bin for deleting files

A new page with a Recycle Bin for deleting files has been added. The button to go to the Recycle Bin is placed on the sidebar. The ability to clear sections with templates, reports, and exports at the same time has been added.

Workspace tags in the admin panel for FastReport Corporate Server

Workspace tags for easier searching have been added. For example, when administering a Corporate Server, workspaces for the organization’s employees and customers are created. You can use tags to tag your workspaces and exclude them when searching for client spaces.
