Create a Web Report

The File > Publish option creates a web page in which reports, descriptive text, and graphics are displayed. The web page, graphics, and support files are saved in the directory that you specify so that you can zip the files and send them to another user. This feature is particularly helpful for non JMP users.

Some graphs can be displayed as interactive HTML (for example, bubble plots or background maps). When you click the thumbnail of the graph in a web report, the interactive graph appears on a new web page.

To generate a web report, follow these steps:

1. Select Help > Sample Data Library and open

2. Run the Graph Builder Map and Bubble Plot by State scripts.

3. From any JMP window, select File > Publish.

4. Click Select All to display both graphs in the report.

Publish to should be set to File, and the Publish Data box should be selected.

5. Click Choose and navigate to where you want to put the parent folder. Click Select Folder.

Note that the Name of sub-folder for this report box indicates the current date and time. The web report files are saved in this folder.

6. Click Next.

7. Enter SAT By Year Reports in the Web Report Title box.

8. Enter the descriptions and titles as shown in Figure 10.4.

Note: If you selected one report, you have the option of generating an index page. The index page shows a thumbnail of the report. You click the thumbnail to view the report. Figure 10.5 shows an example.

Figure 10.4 Customizing the Web Report 


The reports are in the order you created them. In this example, the Graph Builder Map script was run first, so the map is the first report. Use the arrows next to the reports to rearrange them. Also, after you remove a report, a Restore Reports button appears in case you want to add the report again.

Click Add Image to append an image to the bottom of the report.

Click Customize to find options for changing the font, logo, and more. See Web Report Options.

9. Click Build Report.

The web page opens in your default browser.

Publish to JMP Public or JMP Live

JMP Live is a website purchased by your company for sharing JMP content privately, and can be hosted by SAS or your company. JMP Public is a website using the same technology as JMP Live, where anyone can share JMP content with the public.

JMP Public and JMP Live are platforms for sharing JMP data, visualizations, and dashboards. Prepare your reports in JMP and publish them as posts to collaborate with your colleagues, even those who might not have JMP.

JMP Public and JMP Live offer the visual interactivity of JMP to explore your data, and let you do the following:

Store all of your reports in one location.

Control sharing of individual reports with those who need to see them.

Maintain up-to-date reports for your team in an easily accessible location.

Extend the functionality of reports to other locations – embed and interact with your reports in web pages, blogs, social media posts and more.
