    Not sure based on this example how this is any different then just scheduling a report normally via JRS. Bursting in my mind means the user can define a single schedule that will distribute (burst) outputs to different individuals with separate parameters defined. I am not seeing that in the example about so wanted to make sure I’m not missing something.

      Hi Robert,

      Sorry for the late response. You have a valid point here and I am sorry I missed it in the explanation.
      Basically in Point No h. where we select the recurrence details. On the top right side, there is a tab called “Parameters”. If your report has defined parameters present, you can specify the parameter values for this specific schedule.

    Robert is right, this feature has been present since a long time in JRS along with parameters. Bursting implies dynamic recipients with corresponding parameters, not hard coded ones. For example, all customers whose addresses are stored in a db will receive personalized account statements. That is what Talend or Pentaho etl is used for, not this simple type of scheduling.
