Configuring a Default SMTP Server

If you are a reporting administrator, and want to make it easier for reporting users to configure email in Enterprise Reporter, you can configure a default SMTP server. This allows reporting users to choose this server when setting up options such as report delivery. You can provide a server that uses anonymous connections, or one that uses authentication. Users can provide their own credentials when they create a schedule.

On the Report Manager System Configuration tab, click Configure SMTP server used by Enterprise Reporter.

Scheduling Reports

You can create a schedule, or a series of schedules, to run reports. Once you have created a schedule, you can add reports and set the parameters for the reports. You can view a calendar showing when the reports will run based on the schedule. When you are deciding how often to run your reports, make sure you understand how often the data on which you are reporting is collected. Your reporting interval needs to be at least the size of the data collection interval, or there will not be any new information in the reports. For more information on data freshness, see Running Reports . Each schedule card has the option to disable or enable the schedule if the need arises. The Schedule page also contains the option to sort all reports within each schedule by name or by type.

When you add a report to a schedule, a link is maintained between the originating report and the scheduled version. Any changes to the report definition and layout will be reflected in all scheduled versions. The originating report path is indicated on the scheduled report card.

You can add the same report to a single schedule more than once, or to different schedules. This allows you to schedule different versions of the report by providing different parameter values. In order to help you keep track of the various versions, you can provide a description of the parameter values. This description also appears on the scheduled report card. Figure 3 shows this information on the scheduled report card.
