UC Diagnostics has a separate web-based reporting component called UC Diagnostics Web Reports.

UC Diagnostics Web Reports provides a collection of reports called Preconfigured Reports. Preconfigured Reports allow report consumers to view data across multiple subsections of your organization. You can change relevant report parameters immediately using Quick Filters. Web Reports also provides a Web Report Wizard, which allows you to create customized reports based on any data available in your Web Reports database.

If you would like to protect your credentials to your UC Diagnostics database, you can do the following depending if you have installed Web Reports on the same computer as SQL database, or if you have Web Reports installed on a separate computer.
