    Generating an Active Alarms Report

    Use this procedure to generate an active alarms report in spreadsheet format, and save it to the local drive.

    1. From the main menu, choose Tools >Reports >Alarms >Active.
    2. Wait while the report generates. The bottom of the GUI shows "Requesting Report:" followed by the selected report type.

      Note: If the report fails to generate, see if Changing the Report Generation Timeout applies to your situation.

    3. When the report has been generated, the tool automatically launches your web browser and points it to the location of the report (report URL) on the PSM Server. Log in using your PSM user name and password.

      Note: The report is stored indefinitely on the server at the location specified by the report URL, and is accessible from any browser. To prevent unauthorized access to this possibly sensitive data, the report location is password protected. If you have generated reports previously, your web browser may have cached your user name and password, and may log in automatically for you.

      Note: Your browser may require you to explicitly verify and accept the server certificate before you can have access to the report. This is normal because communication between the browser and the server is through HTTPS.

      After logging in, a file download dialog box opens.

    4. Open or save the report.

      The following is an example of an Active Alarms report:
