Report Groups

 

You can sort reports into functional groups. If you categorize reports into groups, you can efficiently organize and find reports.

For example, you can view all reports that are related to Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCIDSS) compliance.

By default, the Reports tab displays the list of all reports, however, you can categorize reports into groups such as:

  • Compliance

  • Executive

  • Log Sources

  • Network Management

  • Security

  • VoIP

  • Other

When you create a new report, you can assign the report to an existing group or create a new group. You must have administrative access to create, edit, or delete groups.

For more information about user roles, see the Juniper Secure Analytics Administration Guide.
