The following example demonstrates how to retrieve the number of jobs that exist in job folders.

DomainReport nameFeatures used
Job ActivityNumber of jobs in job folders
  • Add filters
  • Add calculations
  • Summarize data

You add a filter so that deleted jobs are not counted. You add the Concatenate summarization function to concatenate the Parent Folder Path and Job Folder Name columns to get the full path of a job. You use the Count summarization function to count the number of jobs.

  1. Launch Query Studio from the BMC Decision Support for Server Automation portal.
