Configuring Map Components in the Report Builder

When you add a map component to a report, you must use a data set that contains fields with degrees of latitude and longitude and physical items that can be located on a map.

Before You Begin

  • Build a Report

  • To build and deploy reports, your CommCell user account requires a role with the Add Report permission and an association with the CommCell entity.

For more information on users, permissions, and associations, see User Administration and Security - Overview.


  1. On the Web Console for the Private Metrics Reporting Server, click Reports.

    The Worldwide Dashboard appears.

  2. To open a report where you have already added a data set, from the navigation pane, click Configuration > Reports, and next to the Report Name under Actions, click Edit.

  3. Optional: If your report has multiple pages, click the tab for the page that you want to edit.

  4. Drag Map Component to the Drop components to build the report box.

  5. From the Data Sets list, drag a latitudinal field to the Drop Latitude Column box.

    The Drop Latitude Column box appears blank until you add a field to the Drop Latitude Column box.

  6. From the Data Sets list, drag a longitudinal field to the Drop Latitude Column box.

  7. From the Data Sets list, drag a text-based field to the Drop Data Columns box.


    Note: You can drop multiple field names into the Drop Data Columns box to plot additional information in the chart.

  8. Select the component, on the Properties tab, click Generalproperties_general, and configure the settings:

    • To name the map component, in the Title box, type a name for the component.

    • To configure a different ID for the map component, in the ID box, type a new identifier for the component.

      Note: You cannot edit the contents of the Data Set box.

  9. To configure settings under Custom Code custom_code_tab, see Configuring Custom Code and Custom Styles for Reports.

  10. To save this version of your report specification in the Reports Manager, at the top of the Report Builder page, click Save.

  11. To make the report available to end users on the Reports page, at the top of the page, click Deploy.
