    Generating PBN Reports

    Service Insight provides Proactive Bug Notifications (PBNs) as a proactive measure to alert about known issues that can impact the devices in the network. You can also set the scheduling time for generating PBN reports such that they are generated on a set schedule. Devices with PBN information are identified and displayed on the Exposure Analyzer page. Using Service Insight, you can generate PBN reports for these devices in an Excel file. A PBN report includes the following items: Device Name, Device Serial Number, Product, Junos Version, Device Group, Connected Member, Organization, PBN Title, Juniper ID, PBN Description, PBN Customer Impact, PBN Work Around, and PBN URL.

    To generate PBN reports:

    1. From the Service Insight navigation tree, select Insight Central > Exposure Analyzer.

      The list of devices appears.

    2. Select one or more devices for which you want to generate the PBN report.
    3. From the Actions menu, select Generate PBN Reports. Alternatively, right-click and select Generate PBN Reports.

      The Generate PBN Report dialog box appears as shown in Figure 1.

    8. (Optional) Under the PBN issue date option, select values for Start Data and time and End Date and time to generate a report of the devices affected by PBNs issued during the selected time period.

      Note:

      • If a Start Date and time and End Date and time are not specified, managed devices in your network affected by all the PBNs issued by Juniper Support System (JSS) since the inception of JSS are reported.
      • If you select only the start date and time, the devices in your network affected by all the PBNs issued from the selected Start Date and time till you generate the report are included in the report.
      • If you select only the End Date and time, the devices in your network affected by all the PBNs issued by JSS since its inception and till the selected end date and time are included in the report.

    11. Click Submit after selecting the required options.

      The Job Information dialog box displays a job ID link for the generated report.

      If you have selected the Do not save this report on Service Insight check box, a Download link is provided to download the PBN report as an Excel file; otherwise, the PBN report is stored on Service Insight and can be viewed on the PBN Reports page (Insight Central > PBN Reports) after the job is completed.
