Configure Report Settings

You can generate and download a report on-demand for a device group or a network group by using the Paragon Automation GUI. You can download a report or receive it by email in HTML, JSON, and PDF formats. You must configure report settings before you can generate or download any report.

To configure report settings:


Before you configure report settings, ensure that you have configured destination settings from the Destination Settings page and configured a schedule from the Scheduler Settings page.

  1. Navigate to the Configuration > Insights Settings page, and click the Report tab.

    The Report Settings page appears.

  2. Click the add report (+) icon to add new report settings.

    The Add a Report Setting page appears.

  3. Enter the following information:

    Enter a name for the report.


    Select the format in which you want to receive the report.

    Options: HTML, JSON, PDF.
