This article serves as an introduction to the Lansweeper Cloud report builder, and explains the process of crafting personalized reports.
Lansweeper Cloud includes a new and intuitive report builder. In addition to built-in reports which can be found under the Reports menu of your cloud site, you can build your own custom reports using the report builder.
We'll explain the concept of data collections, the building steps of the report builder, and the result pane. Finally, we'll guide you through the creation of a basic custom report in our step-by-step building guide.
A data collection is a predefined collection of data. Lansweeper uses MongoDB to store your cloud data. For easy access, we've already aggregated the most commonly used data in logical data collections. Lansweeper Cloud currently offers 3 data collections:
Each data collection is presented with a list of fields that are available in the collection. When a data collection set is selected, you can use the search bar on top to quickly search for a field, or you can navigate through the data collection using the categories.
Any report is built using three main steps. The Cloud report builder offers an intuitive visual representation to easily guide you through each of these steps.
Each building step has a result pane on the right-hand side of the building step.
When building a report, the result pane will show a limited number of records for you to verify the result of each building step. The complete report data will only be available when the report is saved and sent to the reporting queue.
In this step-by-step guide, we will build a basic report showing all assets with a certain software installed.
