Reports are the cornerstone of Atlas Library.
Reports are added to the library through the ETL processes. A report general will include several sets of data or actions:
This basic information provides the foundation for your consolidated report library, and is fed into the search.
Additional documentation and metadata can now be added through the app. There are a variety of ways to enhance your documentation!
Images describing your report
Developer description and key assumptions
Link to terms, with custom notes
Add reports to exiting report collections
Report owners, requester, link to the source code
Through parameters, custom values can be added as options for
Service tickets - add the ticket number, a link to the ticketing system, and a few comments describing the change
Maintenance - add maintenance logs directly to your documentation to track the history and changes and maintain report certification
The ETL will add a
certification tag to all reports each time it runs. There are several levels, a description can be found in the
About Analytics page on your Atlas Library install. These tags range from
High Risk to
Analytics Certified. The top tag requires things such as image, descriptions, recent maintenance, etc, in order to achieve the top rank.
If a report has a maintenance schedule and misses the next maintenance dates, administrators will see an alert under the report title reminding them to maintain the report. The task list will also show the report.
All reports will have a
profile included. In the profile you will find all the reports run data, who runs the report, who is subscribed, and who has starred it.
Reports can be shard directly in the app. The person receiving the share will receive a notification in the right sidebar, and also in the mail. SFTP can also be configured in the application settings to send notification to users email box.
Starring a report will add it to your home screen favorites.
Users have the option to request access to reports, or to give feedback. Both of these options integrate into
Manage Engine ticketing system.
The library has some logic in place to determine if reports can be run from your current browser and will give a message to users if they are not able to run the report.
