TIBCO JasperReports Server on AWS

Reporting and analytics server for creating, sharing, and managing reports, dashboards, and data visualizations

This Quick Start deploys TIBCO JasperReports Server, a reporting and analytics server, on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Cloud. Using JasperReports Server, you can create, share, and manage reports, dashboards, and data visualizations. This Quick Start is for developers, IT professionals, architects, and other technical users who plan to implement or extend their deployment of JasperReports Server to the AWS Cloud.

JasperReports Server can run as a standalone server, or it can be embedded into web applications. JasperReports Server is designed with automatic detection functionality for connecting to Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon Redshift, and Amazon EMR.

This Quick Start was developed by TIBCO Software in collaboration with AWS. TIBCO is an
AWS Partner.

  •  What you'll build
  • Use this Quick Start to automatically set up the following JasperReports Server environment on AWS:

    • A highly available architecture that spans two Availability Zones.*
    • A virtual private cloud (VPC) configured with public and private subnets, according to AWS best practices, to provide you with your own virtual network on AWS.*
    • In the public subnets:
      • Managed network address translation (NAT) gateways to allow outbound internet access for resources in the private subnets.*
      • A Linux bastion host in an Auto Scaling group to allow inbound Secure Shell (SSH) access to Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) instances in public and private subnets.*
      • An Application Load Balancer to control the load on the Amazon EC2 instances, reachable from the internet.
    • In the private subnets:
      • A TIBCO JasperReports Server cluster, located in an Auto Scaling group, to deploy the Amazon EC2 instances.
      • A JasperReports Server repository based on Amazon RDS for PostgreSQL with Multi-AZ deployment.
    • An Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket for the license and for customization.

    *  The template that deploys the Quick Start into an existing VPC skips the components marked by asterisks and prompts you for your existing VPC configuration.

  •  How to deploy
  • To build your TIBCO JasperReports Server environment on AWS, follow the instructions in the deployment guide. The deployment takes about 35 minutes and includes these steps:

    1. Sign up for a free TIBCO Jaspersoft evaluation license, which is valid for 14 days in a nonproduction environment.
    2. If you don't already have an AWS account, sign up at, and sign in to your account.
    3. Subscribe to the TIBCO Jaspersoft reporting and analytics Amazon Machine Image (AMI).
    4. Launch the Quick Start by choosing from the following four options:
    5. Test the deployment by logging in to JasperReports Server.

    Amazon may share user-deployment information with the AWS Partner that collaborated with AWS on the Quick Start.  

  •  Cost and licenses
  • You are responsible for the cost of the AWS services and any third-party licenses used while running this Quick Start reference deployment. There is no additional cost for using this Quick Start.

    This Quick Start allows for 14 days of free usage in a nonproduction environment. To receive a free evaluation license that is valid for longer, contact the Jaspersoft sales team

    The AWS CloudFormation templates for this Quick Start include configuration parameters that you can customize. Some of these settings, such as instance type, affect the cost of deployment. For cost estimates, see the pricing pages for each AWS service you use. Prices are subject to change.

    Tip: After you deploy the Quick Start, we recommend that you enable the AWS Cost and Usage Report to track costs associated with the Quick Start. This report delivers billing metrics to an Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) bucket in your account. It provides cost estimates based on usage throughout each month and finalizes the data at the end of the month. For more information about the report, see the AWS documentation.
