    Hi. The book is very good
    I have a problem with the new version of pentaho CE. In CDE they modified the ‘src’ attribute by the ‘src-data’ of the iframe that contains the prpt component. I use this attribute to obtain the value of the report parameters that the user entered. I use this in an endpoint where I run this url and the result can be attached to an email.
    Do you know another way to get the url with the parameters entered by the user?
    Thank you
