Enable Automatic Generation Reports
This section describes how to enable or disable one or all reports for automatic generation. You can also customize the report parameters and enable a mailing option, so reports get e-mailed when they are created. When the report gets mailed, CAR generates the e-mail address by using the mail ID for the CAR administrator(s) and the mail domain that is configured in the Mail Parameters window; that is, CAR uses <mail ID for the CAR administrator> @ <domain that is configured in the mail parameters window>.
For all new installations of Unified Communications Manager, you must first enable the e-mail alerts and reports for automatic generation. The default status for all reports and alerts specifies Disabled.
For all Unified Communications Manager upgrades from Release 5.x to a later release of Unified Communications Manager, the tbl_pregenmail_option table data migrates only if the CAR Scheduler service is active.
When you upgrade to another version of Unified Communications Manager, disable all reports and alerts while the upgrade is in process to conserve system resources. Remember to enable the reports and alerts after the upgrade completes.
The Generated Report Schedule describes reports that are enabled by default.
The Automatic Report Generation/Alert Option window displays.
In the Reports [Report Generation Interval] box, choose the report that you want to automatically generate based on the schedule that you defined in the System Scheduler. See the CAR System Scheduler.
In the Status field, choose Enabled or Disabled.
To customize the report or have the report e-mailed when it is generated, click the Customize Parameters button.
The Customize Parameters window displays.
Choose the CSV or PDF radio button, depending on the type of report that you want the system to mail.
To have the report mailed to all CAR administrators, check the Mailing Option check box.
To save the values that you specified, click the Update button.
The Customize Parameters window closes.
To enable or customize other reports, repeat the previous steps.
Click the Update button.
Changes take effect at midnight. You can force the change to take effect immediately by stopping and restarting the CAR Scheduler service.
