You can find all system-defined reports in CMDB > CMDB Reports. The reports are organized into folders as shown in this table. Click on a report to view Summary information about it, including the report conditions and the columns included in the report.

Report and Organization Associations for Multi-Tenant Deployments

If you have an FortiSIEM multi-tenant deployment, the Organization column in the CMDB report table will show whether the report is defined for a specific organization. If it is, then that report is available for both the organization and Super/Global users.
