Reporting on manual groups

After you create groups, you can create a report from the Group page that details information about the group, including Configuration Items (CIs), subgroups, and any multiple node kinds. This report contains the output of three subgroups, all with the same content. You can create the report with different levels of detail, each that helps you preview the information to collaborate on application mapping prototypes.

The PDF displays one page per functional component, and a tree view of the functional component can also be used as an index.

A visualization is shown of the entire group. This shows how the items contained in a functional group are linked to their host or MFPart directly or through intermediate nodes, once the pattern for the application has been generated and run. This can be used as a quick preview as you are mapping the application.

To create group reports

  1. On the Group page, click the Contents tab.
  2. Select the level of detail you want in the report by using one of the following methods:
    1. Click an area on the Reporting Level bar, where the lowest level is located on the left and the highest level is located on the right (Medium is the default setting), as illustrated in the following screen.

    2. Choose one of the following reporting levels from the Actions menu:


      Type of report generated

      Set PDF Detail High

      Details the names of the nodes in each group and a list of attributes for each node, and displays functional components with all relationships to other components.

      Set PDF Detail Medium

      Details the names of the nodes in each group and a list of important attributes for each node. This is the default reporting level.

      Set PDF Detail Low

      Details the names of the nodes in each group, but no further information on the nodes. You might choose this level, for example, if you have complex diagrams in your report where the links or relationships are not readable. This would display only the functional components and not their relationships to other components.

      Set PDF Detail NoneDoes not generate a PDF report.
  3. From the Actions menu, click Generate PDF Report.
    The Generate PDF Report dialog box is displayed listing the number of subgroups (if any) and nodes that will be included in the report.

  4. Click OK to generate the report.
    A pop-up displays the message, Generating requested Group Report. Report available from the PDF Reports page.
  5. Click the PDF Reports link in the message to view the PDF Reports page. Alternatively, you can go to this page from Manage > PDF Reports.
  6. Click Download corresponding to the group for which you want the PDF report.
