Function documentationSelecting Systems, Scenarios, Hosts, and Databases for Display


In Interactive Reporting, you can display reports for systems, scenarios, hosts, and databases. The following functions are available to quickly switch between these types, and to easily display reports for the desired elements of the respective types.


Make a Type Selection

There are different types available to you for the interactive reports, and you can display reports for the elements of these types. To select a particular type, select one of the following radio buttons in the Type Selection subscreen:

In the Detailed Selection area, the available elements for the selected type are displayed in a list.

Note Note

If you have selected Systems, different tab pages with different system types are displayed, otherwise a list is displayed showing all available elements for the selected type.

End of the note.
Defining Your Own Queries

To easily and quickly call your most frequently used reports with your preferred elements, you can create and store your own personalized queries. These queries are then available to you as a separate tab page in the Detailed Selection area. To create a new query, proceed as follows:

  1. Choose the Define New Query button.

  2. In the first step, select the object type. Since you have already made the type selection, do not change the selection. In this step, you can also select an existing query as a template. In this case, the settings of this template are copied for the next steps.

  3. In the second step, you define which elements of the defined type are to be copied in the query. You can specify different criteria depending on the type, such as the System ID or the Extended SID for systems. You can specify multiple values or entire value ranges.

  4. In the final step, you specify a name for your query. A new tab page is displayed with this name in the Detailed Selection subscreen for the relevant type, which contains precisely the elements that you specified in this selection. To use the query immediately, leave the Activate Query indicator unchanged.

Peronalizing the View

You can personalize your view of the existing queries by choosing the Personalize button. The following functions are available:

  • You can set a default query for the selected type. When you call the relevant type of interactive repots, the associated tab page is displayed by default. To do this, select the Set Standard Query radio button in the row for the desired query.

  • For the queries for a type, you can determine whether or not these are displayed in interactive reporting. To do this, you can move the queries between the two lists Available Queries and Active Queries. Only active queries are displayed in interactive reporting.

  • You can rename and delete queries by selecting the desired query and choosing the corresponding button.

  • You can change the order of the active queries to match your needs; to do this, use the Up and Down buttons.

Choose Apply, to save your entries.

Calling a Query
  1. To call a query, first select the desired elements that you want to display in the report, such as the systems to be displayed. You can select multiple elements or all elements at once.

  2. Depending on the selected type, choose the button System Reports, Scenario Reports, Host Reports, or Database Reports. In each case, you can decide whether you want to display the report in the active window or in a new window.

  3. The desired report is displayed in a new tab page, and the report type and selected elements are displayed in the title of the tab page.

  4. You can change the period for which the data is displayed. For more information, see Using Interactive Reporting.
