Business value

A very common scenario is to customize reports by adding more fields to the dataset and modifying the layout. Until now, you would have to take full ownership of the report dataset (for example, a copy) just to make small changes, thereby forcing partners to maintain a full report and prohibiting multiple ISV contributions to the same report in an extensible way. With report extensibility, a new report extension object can be created, which adds new fields to the dataset or a new layout.

Feature details

Ability to extend an existing report by making additive changes to the report dataset and request page. Report layouts will not have an extensibility model.
