dbFront now supports running Crystal Reports.

dbFront has a new action button type that allows you to select an existing Crystal Report, assign the appropriate parameters and visibility rules and make the button available to your regular users.

A possibly related FYI, for anyone not married to Crystal Reports: we've been using the open source tool Metabase for BI/reporting. With an Open Url button in dbFront we can generate a parameterized link and launch a prefiltered Metabase dashboard.
With the next news release I should send out a survey and ask users about their Reporting choices.  I have not heard about MetaBase before.  It looks solid.
Yes it's a pretty impressive tool. It can be a bit technical to setup and self-host but it's pretty straightforward. I found and installed it a few years back but only recently have begun slowly adopting it in more areas. The endusers love it.
