Creating and Modifying CMDB Reports

There are two ways you can create new CMDB reports: you can create a new report from scratch, or you can clone and modify an existing system or user-defined report.

Creating a New Report

  1. Log in to your Supervisor node.
  2. Go to CMDB > CMDB Reports.
  3. Create a group to add the new report to if you are not adding it to an existing group.
  4. Click New.
  5. Enter a Name and Description for the report.
  6. Select the Conditions for the report.

You can use parentheses to give higher precedence to evaluation conditions.

  1. Select the Display Columns.

The Display Column attributes contain an implicit “group by” command. You can change the order of the columns with the Move Row:

Up and Down buttons.

  1. Click Save.

Cloning and Modifying a Report

You can modify user-defined reports by selecting the report and clicking Edit. However, you cannot directly edit a system-defined report. Instead, you have to clone it, then save it as a new report and modify it.

  1. Log in to your Supervisor node.
  2. Go to CMDB > CMDB Reports.
  3. Select the system-defined you want to modify, and then click Clone.
  4. Enter a name for the new report, and then click Save.

The cloned report will be added to the folder of the original report.

  1. Select the new report, and then click Edit.
  2. Edit the report, and then click Save.
