Report parameters

From the Reports tab of the Global Settings > System Variables node, you can define some default settings for the style-based reports.

Parameter

Description

Encoding

Defines the encoding to be used by default when creating reports.

Style Sheet

Defines the style sheet to use by default when displaying style-based reports in one of the following ways:

  • From the console, you can browse for a style sheet and apply it for style-based reports.
  • 2 files are delivered with the software, but you can adapt these to your requirements or add custom style sheets. These must be located in the <InstallDir>/data/Vision64Database/reports/common/css directory of the master. The BMC.css file is the default file. It has a default width of 1024 pixels . The Compatible.css file has the same values as the BMC.css file but no fixed width and is to be used if you are upgrading from an earlier version to be used with existing reports.
Report Results Time To Live (Days)Defines the number of days for which reports are stored on the master server. By default, the reports are stored on the master server for 90 days.

The logo is only applied to style-based reports. It cannot be applied to template-based reports. You can either select an available logo from the drop-down list or add a new logo for the report.

Notes

  • You cannot delete a logo from the console.
  • If you do not want any logo on the reports, do not select any logo from the drop-down logo menu. The logo name is the same as the filename.
  • Supported formats are PNG and JPG.
  • Minimum logo size is 272 x 91 pixels.
