Tracking application events to generate usage reports

You can track application events to derive metrics and generate reports to check how end users are using an application. The usage reports help to understand if end users are using the application to its complete potential and to derive statistics about a successful or unsuccessful application event. 

BMC Helix Platform provides chatbot-specific events, event statistics, and reports out-of-the-box. For more information, see  Tracking events to generate chatbot usage reports Open link . You can leverage the out-of-the-box events and reports, specify new events, or enable or disable the events for tracking. By default, the user name and create date event attributes are tracked. You cannot modify or delete these attributes. 


Your organization has an application for employees to claim reimbursements for business expenses. The application is configured to auto-approve a certain amount spent on business lunches by sales representatives. By tracking the auto-approval event, you can generate reports about the number of auto-approvals that were successful in a month.

After tracking events and event statistics, you can generate the reports in BMC Remedy Smart Reporting. For more information, see  Smart Reporting licensing and access Open link .


When working in the Customization layer, you can only enable or disable the Event definition or the Event Statistics definition.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that you have the  BMC Remedy Smart Reporting Open link  license.
  • Ensure that the administrator has enabled access to the reporting dashboard. For more information, see Enabling access to Remedy Smart Reporting.
