Request a Report

To view the report, request a report to a user with report administration privileges. Approval is required because some reports may require a long time or significant system resources to run. If your report request requires an approval, the system sends you an email alert.

Follow these steps:

  1. Log in to the User Console with report tasks user privileges.
  2. Select Reports, Reporting Tasks, and Request a Report.

    A list of reports appears.

  3. Select the report that you want to request.

    A parameters screen appears.

    Provide any parameter information required.

    Note: If you are running a snapshot report and no snapshots are available for this report, you must first capture a snapshot.

  4. Click Schedule Report, and select a schedule for your report.
    Now

    Specifies that the report runs immediately.

    Once

    Specifies that the report runs once, during a specific time period. Select the start date, end date, start time, and end time when you want to generate the report.

    Note: Consider selecting this option if the report you are requesting requires a large amount of data. To conserve system resources, choose a time when there is less system activity.

  5. Click Submit.

    The report request is submitted. Depending on your environment configuration, the request runs immediately, or it runs after approval by an administrator.

    Typically, a system administrator or another user with report administration privileges must approve a report request before the system completes it. Approval is required because some reports can require a long time or significant system resources to run. If your report request requires approval, the system sends you an email alert.
