Report Scheduler

Introduction

The Report Scheduler allows you to schedule the automatic generation of report at regular intervals. Report could be the result and the concatenation of multiple report script files.
The generated report could be saved in the user directory or global directory and thus be available to WEB remote console user(s).
The report Scheduler uses Report Script File as entries ( .rep extension) and provides Report as output file with .html extension). Reports are displayed by a common WEB navigator.
A set of scripts could be saved as a template file and re used in other Plug-in attached to other hosts.

Installation

Like other LoriotPro Directory Plug-in the Report Scheduler is attached to a Directory Host object. In the directory select the host to which you want to attach the Plug-in and from the contextual menu select -> Insert Task -> Report Scheduler.

Using Report Scheduler

After installation you get the Plug-in attached to your host.

If you click on the Report Scheduler plug-in in the directory you open the following Dialog box.

The window's fields are described in the table below
