This topic describes the features of the Schedule a Report view. Prior to scheduling a report, you have to create a dynamic list (with the overwrite option selected) with services added. For more information, see Generate a List from the Scheduled Report. Then use the list to generate a report with details in the report like services and host names.
The Schedule Report view consists of the following panels:
- Schedule Report
- Output Actions
- Dynamic List
The following figure shows the different panels on the Schedule Report view.
Schedule Report Panel
The Schedule Report panel allows you to schedule reports.
The following table lists the fields in the Schedule Report panel.
|Enable||Enables the report schedules and runs the report.|
|Report Name||The name of the report.|
|Schedule Name||The name of the scheduled report configuration.|
|NetWitness DB||The database can be NWDB, IPDB, and Warehouse DB depending on the type of database that you selected in the rule definition. If the report has rules of NWDB, IPDB, and Warehouse DB types, all the database types or rule types are displayed.|
|Warehouse Resource Pool||If the report has rules of Warehouse DB, the Warehouse Resource Pool drop-down is displayed to select the pools or queues available in the cluster. If no pools or queues are entered for the Reporting engine, this field is disabled. For more information, see Step 5: Configure Task Scheduler for a Reporting Engine.|
|Run||Provides the type of schedule for the run configuration: |
|On||The data range on which the query is run.|
|Use relative time calculation||Uses the relative time duration to schedule a report.|
|Iterative Report||Select the checkbox to schedule a report for the selected list value.|
|Iterate on List||Click this button to navigate to the List Selection panel and select a list. The following figure displays this panel:|
The List Selection panel is a collection of Lists. The Reporting Engine maintains an active list of the available list names by continuously synchronizing with the collection to which it is connected.
|Apply To||Apply list values on the selected variable.|
|Variables||Displays the rule variables along with their associated values and the iterative properties included in the report. |
Note: Depending on the rule chosen while creating a report, you can view dynamic variables defined for the rule in the Variables field of the Schedule Report panel. For example, Test-Country is the rule having the dynamic variable var.
|Schedule||Schedules the report.|
|Reset||Resets the scheduled report.|
|Configure||Allows you to alter the Reporting Engine configuration details on the Reporting Engine General Tab. |
Note: This button is visible on the Schedule Report panel only when you have the 'Manage Device' access permissions on the Reporting module.
Output Actions Panel
The Output Actions panel specifies output actions to notify the email recipient when the report execution completes and also sends reports in PDF and CSV formats as attachments in the email, based on your selection.
The following table lists the fields in the Output Actions panel.
Dynamic List Panel
The Dynamic List panel populates the lists created and you can add, edit or delete the list. The list is generated based on the scheduled report which can be viewed in the Lists view.
The following table lists the operations in the Generate List panel.
|Adds a new list to the report.|
|Deletes all the lists added to the report.|
|Displays the Generate List dialog.|
|List Name||The name of the list chosen from the List Selection panel. For more information on the List Selection panel, see Generate a List Panel.|
The Logo panel populates the default logo from the Select a Logo panel. For more information on choosing a logo from this panel, see Select a Logo Panel.
You can set the default logo for a Reporting Engine. This is the logo that is used in the generated reports. For more information on choosing a logo, see Select a Logo.
Note: If you have not selected any logo then the default RSA logo is used on the report. The option Save as PDF for the previously executed reports does not support a new customer logo. It displays the default RSA Logo, if the customer logo must be displayed in the Schedule a Report view.
