Procedure documentationAdjust Report Display in Interactive Reporting


You can use Interactive Reporting (in the SAP Solution Manager Technical Monitoring work center) to display the development of the most important monitoring data in your monitored systems, over time, centrally. You can identify potential problems early, and get an overview of the load and performance of your systems. SAP provides pre-defined reports for the following types of managed objects:

  • Systems

  • Scenarios

  • Hosts

  • Databases

The reports delivered are grouped in categories by these types. There need not be each category for each type:

  • Availability

  • Performance

  • Exceptions

  • Capacity

  • Usage

You can now display and group the reports according to your requirements:

  • You can hide reports which you no longer need.

  • You can change the sequence and categories of reports displayed.

  • You can regroup the reports displayed, by creating your own categoriesand putting the reports in them.

  • You can rename reports and categories.

  • You can also put your own reports into interactive reporting, to specify which data is to be displayed, in which format. The creation of reports of this type is described in the procedure Creating Your Own Queries for Interactive Reporting. You can put your own queries in your interactive reporting, so that they are displayed with the reports delivered by SAP.

This procedure explains how you can make these changes.


To adjust the report display in interactive reporting, proceed as follows:

  1. In the Technical Monitoring work center navigation bar, choose Interactive Reporting.

  2. In the Type Selection box, choose the type, and start interactive reporting, as described in Interactive Reporting.

  3. Several pushbuttons, and the date selection, are displayed in interactive reports. Choose Report Administration. You go to the Change Reports in Interactive Reporting screen.

    Note Note

    The settings you make in this screen apply to the display of all objects of the selected type.

    End of the note.
  4. The display structure is displayed in a tree which models the structure displayed in interactive reporting, in the two tabs above the report, in the Reports subscreen. You can specify for which type you want to adjust the display, in the Type Selection subscreen.

  5. Proceed as follows, depending on the change you wish to make:

    • To no longer display a report, select it and choose Delete.

    • To change the the sequence of the displayed reports, and change their categories, drag the elements into position. You can also move a report to another category.

    • To create your own category, select the Type (e.g. Overview or SAP Basis), into whose structure you want to insert the category, and choose Insert. To name your category, select it, enter the name in the Group Details subscreen, and choose Apply Changes.

    • To change the name of a structure element, select it, enter the name in the Group Details or Report Details subscreen, and choose Apply Changes.

    • To put a user report in the structure, select the category in which the report is to be displayed, and choose Insert. Select this element, and enter the display name in the Report Details subscreen, in the Report Name field. Enter the technical name of the web template which you have created, in the Web Template Name field (see Create User Queries for Interactive Reporting).

    • To discard all adjustments, i.e. to return to the default SAP report display, choose Restore Default.

  6. Save your adjustments with Save Structure.


You have performed all steps; the next time you call the interactive report, the structure will be displayed according to your changes.
