Working with Reports

The Reports feature provides the ability to share data outside of vFoglight. In vFoglight, the tasks of report scheduling and report browsing/viewing are separated into the Report

Manager dashboard and the Reports dashboard.

User Guide

Introducing the Reports Module

Most users can use the Reports dashboard to run and schedule reports; however, the use of the Report Manager dashboard to work with scheduled reports as well as test

(preview) report templates, and create a new schedule should be limited to those with advanced operator permissions.

You can create reports based on:

• Pre-defined, standard reports—out-of-the-box templates for a high-level, overview perspective of the data. For information on the list of supplied report

templates, see “ Supplied Report Templates ” on page 164.

Custom reports—created from any displayed dashboard. See “ Working with

Custom Reports ” on page 213.

vFoglight divides the report-related functions into two separate dashboards:

• Report Manager dashboard—allows users with advanced operator permissions to perform the tasks of editing, copying, and managing scheduled reports, test

(preview) report templates, create a new schedule (that is not part of the defined list of schedules), as well as delete scheduled and generated reports.

• Reports dashboard—available to all users who are assigned the Operator role.

Enables operators to perform some common tasks as available in the Report

Manager dashboard such as run or schedule a report as well as delete a report.

Report Manager Dashboard

The Report Manager Dashboard enables you to create, edit, copy, and schedule reports, test report templates, and delete scheduled and generated reports.

The Report Manager consists of four panes:

• The top pane runs across the top of the Report Manager dashboard contains the icons to Run Report , Create (custom) Report , Schedule Report .

• The left-hand pane contains a hierarchical list on the left to better organize the reports. The report templates are grouped accordingly:

• By Module —reports are classified by the module in which the report template is created (for example, Services, Administration, or Host).

• By Role —reports are grouped according to common use by a functional role.

• All —displays all available reports. The Module column indicates the module in which the report was defined.

• The upper right pane displays the Scheduled Reports view with the scheduled reports that have been created on the basis of the template.

• The Name , Template , and Schedule columns for each scheduled report is listed. Click on a template or schedule to view details.

• The User column lists who created the report.

• The Retain column lists how many instances of a report are kept. For example, if the value is 3, then when a fourth report is generated, the oldest one will be deleted.

• The Disabled column indicates whether the report is not currently being generated (true) or is being generated (false).

• The lower right pane displays the Generated Reports view containing the following columns:

• Date and Time when each scheduled report was generated, Report name ,

Size , Template , and Schedule .

• Message column displays any error messages associated with the report.

• View column containing the PDF output of a generated report.

To show or hide columns in the generated reports view, click the Show/Hide columns and select the checkboxes beside the columns to appear.

Reports Dashboard

The Reports dashboard is available to Operators and lists the reports which have been generated. You can sort the list according to date, scheduled report, size, template, schedule, or message. The Reports dashboard has the same view as the Generated

Reports area that is in the Report Manager dashboard, except that the Reports dashboard shows all reports that were generated in the Generated Reports view. The Report

Manager dashboard shows reports according to the type of scheduled report as well as generated reports.

You can also use the Reporting dashboard to run a report using a report template, create a custom a report, and schedule a report to run at a later date.

To navigate to the Report Manager dashboard from the Reports dashboard, click the

Manage Reports icon. Note that you will need Advanced Operator permissions to do so.

To filter the shown reports based on search text see “ Applying a Filter to Generated

Reports ” on page 206.

To show or hide columns in the Generated Reports view, click the Show/Hide columns and select the checkboxes beside the columns you want to appear.

Supplied Report Templates

Reports are created based on existing templates. Before you can create a report, you must know the template’s capabilities. Different reports use different parameters; these parameters define the content of the report

Working with Reports

Supplied Report Templates

165 vFoglight contains a number of pre-defined, overview type reports based on default templates that you can use as they are or edit to meet your requirements. Each one serves a particular purpose however, there are multiple report templates that have the same expected inputs. The predefined report templates allow you to quickly generate reports with the option of setting and changing the values in the report inputs. The supplied templates are described on the following pages.

You can also create a custom report, which is similar to creating a dashboard. When you

create a custom report, it is added to the report templates list. See “ Creating a Custom

Report Template ” on page 213.

Note Most of the pre-defined reports have grid components that do not support CSV (Comma

Separated Value) output.

This section also lists the possible report inputs that are available for each supplied report template. The contents of the report input dialogs vary depending on the type value you are editing. You can set your own specialized parameters by specifying values for the report inputs using the Web Component Framework which is used to build all the views in the vFoglight user interface. For more information on context input and values, see the Web Component Guide and Web Component Reference .
