Running reports

Updated in 8.7

When you "run" a report, you generate the report with the actual data from your Alloy Discovery database. After viewing, you can print out the generated report or export the report to another format.

To run a report:

  1. Open the report as follows:

    • On the main menu, click Reports > [ Report Category] > [ Report Name ]. For example, Reports > Computers > Computer Inventory List.

    • Alternatively, you can click Reports > Reports on the main menu to open the Reports component. In the Categories pane, select the desired category, right-click a report from the Reports grid and then choose Run Report from the pop-up menu.

  2. If the report requires setting parameters, specify parameters in a Report Parameters dialog box and click OK. For example, you can specify a time or datetime parameters for running reports.

  3. The report appears in the Print Preview window. Choose what you want to do next:

    • To export the report, click the Export button and choose the export format. Then specify the destination location and click OK.

    • To print out the report, click the Print button , specify the print options, and click OK.

  4. Close the Print Preview window.
