Hello fellow Joomla Devs,

I have a reporting component that comprises of a "report builder" and a "report viewer". It is both a backend and a frontend component. 

In the "report builder", a FRONTEND user can build their own reports. However, I am needing the BACKEND user to also be able to access this report builder to be able to create reports in the backend component as well.

Is there any way I can share a frontend report builder with the backend component?

I tried creating a plugin to render the reportbuilder in the backend and got it to render, but when I tried to get the user from JUser it returned the frontend user, not the backend user.

Let me know if you need clarity on anything.

Thanks in advance!
Richard

I realize I was not clear in some points so I have rewritten my question:

I tried creating a plugin to render the reportbuilder in the backend and got it to render, but when I tried to get the user from JUser in one of the ajax calls, it returned the frontend user, not the backend user.
