Steps to Create Dynamic Templates
In the Dynamic Template Designer, all report templates are specific to an enterprise object: storage array, job, data domain, or host.
Drag and drop the fields and methods to be included in a report template. See also, Using Methods in Dynamic Templates.
Customize fields by applying formatting and adding functionality, such as a drilldown to a detail report.
Access details and other reports using an html drilldown link. See also, Examples of Dynamic Templates Containing Drilldowns.
For examples of report templates that have double, spanning headers, see the Backup Executive Summary or the Chargeback Array Capacity report templates.
A variety of functions can be applied: aggregation, comparison, numeric, character, date, character string to return numeric, null, and decode. See also, Examples of Dynamic Templates Containing Functions.
Create fields that are calculated from other fields, such as converting dates to numbers.
Create a chart that includes a sector field and a caption field. See also, Examples of Pie Chart Dynamic Templates.
Specify a field, operation, and value.
Control the order that the fields will appear in a report template.
Define what the user can specify at run time.
Modify existing Dynamic Templates and export them.
Report templates that are shipped with APTARE StorageConsole or that are downloaded from the Cloud cannot be overwritten and will only allow save as to a different name.
