A Custom Report can be used to generate customize report of any set of data. Using Custom Report, you can also generate report for already executed or running process flows.

A custom report activity is created using the custom report template (jrxml file), which is generated by the iReport software. This custom report activity is further used to select the process flow and generate reports into PDF, XLS, CSV, TXT and HTML format.
