Removing customization of PDF files exported from unified reports

When you customized the view of the PDF files exported from unified reports and you want to revert to the default view, you can remove the customization anytime.

Before you begin

You must have completed the following tasks:

About this task

You can open the eclipse.ini file and remove the parameters with the values that you set previously to customize the view of the exported PDF files.

After you save the eclipse.ini file, you must then restart IBM® Rational® Functional Tester before you export PDF files in the default view from unified reports.


  1. Open the eclipse.ini file that is located in the
    C:\Program Files\IBM\SDP folder.
  2. Determine the parameters in the eclipse.ini that correspond to the customization that you no longer require.
    The parameters that you had added earlier for customization can be any of the following:
    • -Dreport.skipTableInPdf

      The parameter is used to highlight verification points in test steps and hide the tabular details of step steps from the generated PDF.

    • -Dreport.snapShotSize

      The parameter is used to increase the size of screen captures, relative to the page width, that is displayed in the PDF.

    • -Dreport.skipActionEventImageList

      The parameter is used to exclude screen captures of only specific SAP GUI test steps in the PDF.

    Note: If you want to remove either the -Dreport.snapShotSize or -Dreport.skipActionEventImageList parameter with the values, you must also remove the -Dreport.skipTableInPdf parameter with the values.
  3. Delete the parameters that you no longer require with their values from the eclipse.ini file.
  4. Save the eclipse.ini file.
  5. Restart IBM® Rational® Functional Tester with the -clean option.


You have successfully removed the customization to view the exported PDF files that you no longer require.
