    Reports Overview

    You can use the Reports workspace to generate customized reports for managing the resources on your network. You can use these reports to gather device inventory details, job execution details, and audit trails.

    You first create a report definition to specify what information to retrieve from the Junos Space Network Management Platform inventory database. You then use this report definition to generate, export, and print the reports. Junos Space Network Management Platform provides some predefined categories (report types) to create report definitions.

    You combine multiple report types to create a report definition; you can also create a report definition using one report type. By default, a predefined set of attributes is included in a report type. You can choose to add or remove the attributes in a report type according to what information you want from the final generated report. You can group, sort, or filter data by using specific attributes in each report type.

    You can apply multiple filter criteria to columns in a report type to filter data. For example, you can filter a User Accounts report type by roles, user type, and GUI or API access. From Junos Space Network Management Platform Release 16.1R1 onward, you can filter columns by domains also. You can separate the filter criteria with commas. Columns that meet the filter criteria are listed in the report generated from the report definition. The data types that support filtering using multiple filter values are String, Integer, Date, and Enum.

    You can use the report definitions to generate reports in CSV, HTML, and PDF formats. The reports display the name and description of the report. You can schedule the delivery of generated reports to a designated SMTP server or an SCP server. You can view, download, or print the generated reports from the Generated Reports page in the Reports workspace. You can also tag the reports and report definitions. For more information, see Tagging an Object.

    Note: Reports generated in a parent domain include information from all subdomains. Reports generated in a subdomain include information from only that subdomain. The reports that you generate can contain information from all accessible domains if you set the "Manage objects from all assigned domains” flag as your preference. To set this flag, click the User Settings icon on the Junos Space banner and click the Object Visibility tab.

    You need to be assigned the necessary privileges to generate reports for a specific type of report in a report definition. Table 1 displays the mapping between report types and the privileges you need to be able to create, modify, or delete a report definition or view, generate, or delete reports by using the report definition.
