Templates, Reports, and Dashboards Overview
APTARE StorageConsole provides reports, templates, and dashboards to access the rich set of collected data. Additional information is available in subsequent chapters in this guide.
Templates - Report templates provide the basis for all reports. APTARE StorageConsole comes packaged with a set of over 200 report templates, based on the StorageConsole products you’ve licensed. These templates are designed to provide a meaningful display of data, supporting business solutions for your enterprise. Users also can create custom templates using the SQL Template Designer or the Dynamic Template Designer.
Cloud Templates - APTARE periodically publishes new report templates and makes them available through the Cloud section in the Explorer. This provides instant access to new and improved report templates without waiting for a formal StorageConsole release. You can run reports directly from the Cloud, preview the data, and if you like report, save the template locally. Once saved, Cloud templates work exactly like out-of-the-box templates, except these are connected to the Cloud, so when APTARE introduces improvements, the Cloud section is automatically refreshed and your Cloud templates can also be updated if you choose to do so.
Reports - Reports are generated from templates, with a scope selector that enables you to define the data set to be included in the output. A saved report includes the selected scope. Several reports can use the same template. Reports always have a template associated with them. You can quickly see this connection on the Explorer tab. This allows you to map back to the original template if you’d like to make changes.
Dashboards - Create your own dashboards by running reports and dragging them into a Dashboard window. Dashboards enable you to combine several reports into a single-pane view.
