Report Definitions

Stock Report Definitions

You can create a new report definition or modify the existing report definition and save it as a new one. To do so, right-click a stock report definition and select Save As, or edit a stock report definition and select Save As. Save the report definition with a new name and you can then edit it.


Note


You cannot rename a Stock Report Definition.


You can delete a stock report definition only if you have the user role of a System Configuration Administrator and a Report Definition Designer, and also have WRITE permissions to that specific report definition.


Note


If you have a premium license, the list contains all stock report definitions and any custom report definitions that have been created.


Create or Edit Report Definitions

Report Definitions reside in the Report Definitions drawer in the left pane. You can create folders to categorize report definitions.

Report Definitions are based on the query type used in them. The query types are listed here:

Import Report Definition

If you have an existing Unified Intelligence Center report definition XML file, you can import it into the application and then customize it.


Note


Ensure that the data source that is used by the report definition being imported is configured in Unified Intelligence Center. Also, if the report definition has any value lists defined, ensure that the data source that is being used by the value lists is also defined in Unified Intelligence Center.


The following steps describe how to import an existing Unified Intelligence Center report definition.

Procedure
    Step 1   Click the Report Definitions drawer in the left pane.
    Step 2   Navigate to the folder where you want to import the report definition.

    To create a subfolder, navigate to the appropriate folder, right-click on the folder, and select Create Sub-category.

    Step 3   Click Import Definition.
    Step 4   In the File Name (XML File) field, click Browse to select the XML file.
    Step 5   Browse to and select the report definition xml file, and click Open.
    Step 6   From the Data Source for ReportDefinition drop-down list, select the data source used by the report definition.
    Step 7   From the Data Source for ValueList drop-down list, select the data source used by the value lists defined in the report definition.
    Note   

    You have to select a data source for the value list only if it does not use the same data source as the report definition. For report definitions of Real Time Streaming, it is mandatory to select a data source for the Value Lists.

    Step 8   In the Save To field, browse to the folder where you want to place the imported report definition. Use the arrows to expand the folders.
    Step 9   Click Import.
