Steps to Create a Dynamic Report Template
Visit our YouTube channel to watch product overviews and demonstration videos featuring specific product areas:
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.
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.
For examples of report templates that have double 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.
Create fields that are calculated from other fields, such as converting dates to numbers.
Define the legends and each axis. See also, Bar Chart Example.
Create a chart that includes a pie field and a caption field. See also, Pie Chart Example.
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 runtime.
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.
