You can specify a subtitle for a scheduled report. This is useful for adding a label, such as CONFIDENTIAL.

Custom Time Ranges

If you need to use a custom schedule, in the Timerange pulldown menu of the Report Data tab for an application health or controller audit report, select Custom. If there is an existing custom time range that meets your needs, select it from the Saved Time Ranges list. If you need to create a new custom time range, click Manage Custom Time Ranges at the very bottom of the pulldown menu and configure a new timerange.


titleSpecial Procedure for 32-bit Controllers on Linux

Due to an issue with the 32-bit linux controller, it is necessary to replace the phantomjs PhantomJS binary to enable the sending of scheduled reports.

To do this, run the following commands on the Controller machine as a user with read/, write /and execute permissions in the controller installation directory runs the following commands on the controller's machine. Replace <controller-dir> with the installation directory of your controller.


Controller home directory:

No Format
wget https://phantomjs.googlecode.com/files/phantomjs-1.9.2-linux-i686.tar.bz2

tar -xvf phantomjs-1.9.2-linux-i686.tar.bz2

cp phantomjs-1.9.2-linux-i686/bin/phantomjs <controller


Replace <controller_home> with the installation directory of your controller.

It is not necessary to shut down the controller Controller or reporting service; the report service . The report service will work properly as soon as the phantomjs PhantomJS is replaced.But if the controller is upgraded to a later 4.1.x patch release, it will be necessary to run the commands again

For additional troubleshooting, see information on Reporting Service system requirements in Controller System Requirements.

On-Demand Reports

On-demand reports are not distributed automatically. It is the responsibility of the creator to send or post the report to make it available to its intended recipients.
