Viewing a Job Summary report

The Job Summary report summarizes the actions and configuration changes for a selected job. A Job Summary report is available for any job listed in the Network > Jobs list. Job Summary reports are retained for all completed jobs until the jobs are purged per the retention criteria in the system parameters.

To generate a Job Summary report

  1. Open the Job Summary Report wizard page by navigating to Reports > Activity Reports > Job Summary.

  2. Select one of the following options and enter a search value:
    • Job ID: Include in the report only the job that has the specified Job ID.
    • Change ID: Include in the report only jobs that have the specified Change ID. (The Change ID can be from BMC Remedy ITSM, internal RFC process, and so forth.)
    • Task ID: Include in the report only jobs that have the specified Task ID.
    • Annotation: Include in the report only jobs containing an action whose annotation matches the specified Annotation. Both exact and wildcard matches are supported.
  3. Select any of the following options, as relevant:
    • Show Configuration Changes: (Optional) Show configuration changes made by the job. Changes are shown in a summary format (similar to the Change Summary Report) with clickable icons to launch a change details popup. Note that only standard span actions that access devices and non-inspection-only custom actions track their configuration changes in their jobs.
    • Show Job History: (Optional) Show when the job was created, submitted, approved/rejected, and executed.
  4. Click Next to display the Job Summary report.

    The originator is shown in italics if the originator is not a user (for example, if originator is a policy).
    Note: The Send Email option is replaced with Send Notification in version 8.9.01 and later.

  5. (Optional): Perform one of the following tasks by using the menu options that are available on the Job Summary Report page:
