Package Reports for Export

Package Reports for Export

In Unified Intelligence Center, you can bundle all the components of a report together while exporting it. This chapter explains how to package the different components together and export the report.

Configure Online Help for a Report

Each Unified Intelligence Center report can have it's own individual help page. The help page can be hosted separately and the report be pointed to it or it can be created and uploaded along with the report.

If you are uploading the help page, it should be in an HTML or ZIP format. ZIP files can contain multiple HTML files. The contents of the HTML page can be rich text including images. Videos and other interactive content are not supported currently.

To configure the help page for a report, follow the steps below.

    Step 1   Click the Reports drawer in the left pane.
    Step 2   In the Reports tab, right-click the report that you want to assign online help for, and select Edit.
    Step 3   In the Online Help section, select Select Help File.

    If the help content is hosted separately, you can select URL and provide the location where the help content is hosted and go to step 6.

    Step 4   Click Upload Help File.
    Step 5   In the Choose File to Upload window, select the HTML or ZIP file, and , click Open and select the required file.
    Step 6   Click Save.

    Export Reports, Report Definitions, and Categories

    Any custom report, report definition, or categories of reports in Unified Intelligence Center can be exported. Reports and categories of reports are exported in a zip format and report definitions are exported as a single XML file.

    When you export a Category, the reports in the category are grouped together as zip files. The grouping is done on the basis of the data source used by the report definition as well as the value lists.


    For customized reports, you should update the version numbers of the value list and report definition before you export the report. Else, the export will not overwrite the existing default reports.

    To export a Category, right-click the category, and click Export. Choose to save or open the zip file as required.


    Report definitions that contain multiple value lists with each value list pointing to a different data source will not be exported.

    To export report definitions with value lists, ensure that all the value lists in the report definition point to the same data source.

    The same applies to Categories as well. While exporting a Category, ensure that all the Value Lists in the Category point to the same data source.

    When you export a report, the following items are exported:
    • Report

    • Report Definition

    • Value Lists

    • Views

    • Preferences defined in the Report Editor

    • Thresholds

    • Permissions

    • Online Help (if not bundled, an empty folder is created in the zip file)

    The following items are not exported with the report:
    • Report Filters

    • Collections

    Follow the steps below to export a report or a report definition.
      Step 1   In the left pane, click the Reports or the Report Definitions drawer.
      Step 2   Browse to the report or report definition that you want to export.
      Step 3   Right click the report or report definition, and select Export.
      Step 4   Rename the report or report definition if required but do not change the extension ( and Report Definitions:XML).
