combit Report Server

The combit Report Server is a flexibly scalable web-based reporting platform which integrates seamlessly into your cloud environment or on-premises infrastructure. Reports can be created, opened, viewed, edited and shared with other users via the browser.


Ready to Use Out-of-the-Box

Install the Report Server on a Windows system and start using it immediately. Create reports conveniently with the Designer and distribute them automatically – for example as PDF documents via email.


Flexible Linking to Data Sources

Connect the Report Server to almost all database systems. OData, REST, RSS, XML and JSON-based data sources also support automated download from the Internet.


Platform-Independent in the Browser

Create reports regardless of your platform in the browser on Windows, iOS, Android or Linux. The Report Server is optimized for all common browsers on desktop and mobile devices.


Cloud Reporting Without the Hassle

Use the Report Server for cloud-based reporting without in-house development. Integrate the tool directly into your cloud infrastructure via the REST API and add preconfigured data sources and reports.

Self-Service Reporting Solution

As a standalone solution, the combit Report Server makes it possible for you to create reports out-of-the-box without in-house development. As a result, users are able to create evaluations on their own and accelerate work processes.

Make use of a single platform for controlling, sales management and competitive analysis in order to detect existing trends in your business data, and for strategic and data-driven decisions.

Integration Into Your Application

The combit Report Server can be easily integrated into your own applications via the REST API, e.g. for retrieving reports directly – entirely independent of platform and language.

Additional functions are available in the .NET environment via the specialized ClientApi, e.g. for adding existing List & Label reports and data sources.

Create Reports with the Report Server Designer

With combit Report Server, you can create your reports either directly in the browser or in a locally installed Windows application depending on the use case.

Various Report Types

Use countless design options to create customized tables, lists, reports, dashboards, labels, letters, forms and invoices.

Tables and Crosstabs

With the table object in the Report Server, you can create simple reports such as customer or product lists with just a few clicks. For more complex reports with multiple dimensions, use the crosstab object.


The Report Server provides an extensive selection of chart options, enabling your users to bring their concepts to life. This ranges from traditional bar and pie charts to line and area charts, and even extends to advanced geovisualizations with shapefiles or Rscript visualizations.

Interactive Reports

Interactive features allow users to interact with reports and present complex issues clearly. Report Server provides a variety of interactive features such as drilldown, expandable regions, report parameters, sorting, and animations.

A Multitude of Design Elements

The Report Server Designer features a wide range of design options such as lines, rectangles, ellipses, texts, formatted texts, HTML, PDF and much more. The properties of the various elements such as position, alignment, layer, display requirements and colors can thus be flexibly defined down to the smallest detail.

Barcode Module

Nearly 60 license-free barcode formats are available in the barcode module. In addition to common barcodes such as EAN128, GS1 and Pharmacode, 2D codes are also included such as Aztec, Datamatrix and QR code. An overview of available barcode formats can be found here.

User-Defined Elements and Functions

Users can program their own objects and functions for the Report Server Designer and make them available as a module. In this way, designer functionality can be expanded virtually without limits.

Change History

The last 10 versions of any given report template are automatically saved to change history, making it easy for you to keep everything under control. They can be retrieved and reactivated as desired.

Report Caching

Previously generated reports can be cached and thus made available again in a flash. Server load is reduced as a result and IT resources are conserved when large numbers of users access a report. Caching duration can be configured individually.

Reuse Content in Different Reports

With the help of report elements, subreports and project includes, you can incorporate and reuse individual elements (images, PDF files, formatted texts, shapefiles), complete charts and lists, or even entire letterheads and footers in new projects. This saves a great deal of time when creating new report templates.

Powerful Formula Language

Where formulas are involved, fixed text, variables and fields can be used in functions and linked by means of operators. The formula wizard supports you during data entry with a variety of input tools.

Assigning Reports to a Language

Specify languages for report templates in order to print reports in various languages. With the help of many useful functions, content such as currencies and date are automatically adapted to the language used for printing.

    Programming via the REST API

    Integration into your application: Access Report Server functions via the REST interface, for example in order to retrieve reports.

    Getting started is easy: Thanks to code samples for running the REST API in .NET.

    Less coding: Automatically generate OpenAPI specifications (Swagger) in order to describe and visualize REST interfaces in a uniform fashion.

    Freely expandable functionality: Develop your own .NET modules in order to make use of individual data sources or your own designer objects and functions.

    Built-in help: Documentation of the REST API is included in the user interface (ReDoc).

    Programming via the REST API


    You can distribute the Report Server together with your List & Label Enterprise application to your customers free of charge. If you want to distribute the Report Server without List & Label application, each customer needs a separate List & Label Enterprise license.
