Viewing XML Reports in Google Chrome

Modified on Mon, 10 Jan 2022 at 01:48 PM

Viewing reports that have an XSL stylesheet are best viewed inside your favorite web browser.  Since Internet Explorer will be "end of life" soon, here are instructions on using Google Chrome as the application to view XML reports in WorkFlows.


  1. Open WorkFlows and go to the TEMPLATE REPORTS toolbar and then the Report Session wizard in the Common Tasks:
  2. Click on the gadget beside "Application to view XML reports:" and navigate to the Google Chrome application file as shown below:
  3. The path must include the following flag after the executable in the path: --allow-file-access-from-files 
    The full path should now read: C:\Program Files (x86)\Google\Chrome\Application\chrome.exe --allow-file-access-from-files
  4. This command allows Google Chrome to access the XML report from WorkFlows.  Be sure to close restart Google Chrome before viewing the report.
  5. Be sure to save your report session settings and choose Yes to save changes to the Properties when you close WorkFlows:
