You can use the Report Wizard to upload a generated report to a predefined remote location server. Each remote location server has a profile that holds all necessary information, e.g., protocol, URL, username, and password. The Profile Management dialog is used to create, edit, or delete profiles containing the configuration for remote location servers.

In this section, you will learn how to create a new remote location server step by step to upload a generated report to a newly created server, and how to upload a generated report to an existing server.
