I have referenced https://www.enterprise-architecture.org ... ew-reports for insight on how to create a new view in Essential Cloud, however I continue to have issues. Can you share the base template code for creating a new view?

My code was:

xmlns:xalan="http://xml.apache.org/xslt"
xmlns:fo-"http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
<head>Essential Cloud Custom report Test</head>
<body>
<!-- ADD THE PAGE HEADING -->
<xsl:call-template name="Heading"></xsl:call-template>
<!--ADD THE VISITED PAGES SECTION-->
<xsl:call-template name="Page_History">
<xsl:with-param name="breadcrumbs">
<xsl:value-of select="$pageHistory"/></xsl:with-param>
</xsl:call-template>
<!--page body starts here-->
<xsl:apply-templates select="$currentNode" mode="Page_Body">
<!--PAGE BODY ENDS HERE-->
<xsl:call-template name="Footer"></xsl:call-template>
</body>
</html>

Thanks.

Basic page template is attached. It is a skeleton template for your xsl and it sets you up to start at the root node of the xml.

I have had reasonable success reviewing the library of open source views / reports - they work identically on the cloud version, and there are lots of examples from which to find relevant snippets.

If I want to use one of the existing views/ reports as a basis for a user view. What is the easiest way for an Essential Cloud user to get the xsl file for an existing report?
Do I have to install the open source standalone version of essential? OR can I download just the viewer xsl library?

thanks
