TitleHow to create a custom report with Purview and then schedule it to be emailed automatically
Objective
To create a report in Purview, and then work with Oneview Reports and scheduler to be emailed daily.
Environment
  • Netsight Oneview
  • Netsight Purview
Procedure
1.  The First task is to create a regular report in Oneview for Purview by navigating to Applications Tab->Browser Tab.
2.  I created the below report that shows the measured Application Data in A BubbleMap view, samples taken hourly, and for a time period of the previous week.
    One can change the variables below, and add a specific application as well.

6.  In Report Designer, Click on New, and create a unique report name.
     In my case, the report is only one cell, just the bubble window, so one column and row is enough.

7.  Click Ok, then a report window Window with the previous name is generated. From Here Select the Report you want to use.
     In my case it is BubblePurviewOneWeek.
     Scroll until you find yours, select it, then hit save at the top, as seen in the previous Report Designer screenshot.

8.  Now move onto the Scheduler tab. Click Add.
     The Type will be Reporting, and Report Name is the one you just previously saved.

      You will need to select the Report name to run, and the appliance to run it from, the Purview appliance name.
