Setting up data collection for Job Activity reports

The Job Activity reports show you how many jobs of a given type are running, the platforms on which they are running, their success rate, and other detailed information, such as job scheduling and job approval details.

Job Approval ad hoc reports use data that is part of job scheduling data from BMC Server Automation jobs requiring BMC Remedy IT Service Management (ITSM) Change Management approval.

Note

Data is loaded only for the Error and Warning event types from the BMC Server Automation database to the reports data warehouse in ad hoc Job Activity reports.

The BMC Server Automation administrator needs to configure BMC Server Automation to integrate with BMC Atrium Orchestrator and BMC Remedy ITSM, and then configure BMC Server Automation so that a given job type requires BMC Remedy ITSM approval before execution.

For more information about configuring the connections to BMC Atrium Orchestrator and BMC Remedy ITSM, see the following topics in the BMC Server Automation documentation:

Note

When an existing BMC Server Automation job is renamed and run, the job run details for the renamed job in the reports data warehouse and in reports are different from the job run details for the originally named job. The original job run details are associated with the original job name and the renamed job run details are associated with the new job name.

For more information about setting job approval types, see Selecting job types to which to apply job options for Change Automation in the BMC Server Automation documentation.

Consideration for Job Activity reports

When using HTTPS to access the BMC Decision Support for Server Automation portal, the built-in and ad hoc Job Activity reports do not display icons in the Job Run Status and Server Run Status columns. Therefore, the status of a job run cannot be determined when using HTTPS.
