12.2. Reports

Reports allow administrators to provide different slices of data about security events, configurations, or user actions. Reports can be created automatically according to previously created rules and templates and sent to recipients by email.

The Reports section contains four subsections: Report templates, Custom report templates, Report rules, and Generated reports. To create a report, follow these steps:



Step 1. Create a generate report rule.

Create a rule to generate a report and specify all necessary report parameters.

Step 2. Run the report.

Run the report in manual mode or wait until it runs automatically according to the schedule specified in the rule.

Step 3. Receive the report.

Receive the report by mail if you configured the rule to send the report by mail, or download the report from the Generated reports section.


Creating a report can take quite a long time and consume a lot of computing resources.
