Administering BMC Remedy Smart Reporting

The Administration area contains all the system, user, and content settings required to setup and maintain BMC Remedy Smart Reporting's use.

Administrator users are there to ensure:

  1. Users have appropriate access to the system. This is done by creating users, assigning role permissions, and defining any source filter requirements.
  2. Users have appropriate access to data. This is done by creating and assigning access to Data Sources and Views.
  3. Users have appropriate access to content. This is done by creating and assigning access to Content Folders.
  4. The system is correctly configured. This is done by defining the Configuration and Content Settings settings required.

Accessing BMC Remedy Smart Reporting Administration menu

Based on the navigation style selected in Administration > Configuration > System > General Settings > Navigation Style, Administration menu is accessible either from the left side navigation or from the toolbar navigation.

    I am on the latest version of Smart Reporting - v9.1.04. I do not see a link for the following: 1. Plugin Management 2. License Management - There is a statement at the bottom that states that it is licensed. 3. Session Management

    Where are these links on the Smart Reporting Admin Console?

      Hi Leonard,

      Apologies for a delayed response.

      Licence Management and Plugin Management options are a part of global settings for entire Smart Reporting deployment. Hence these are available in Default org. Please login as "siadmin" to access these links.

      Hope this helps.

      Regards,

      Vrishali

    Spelling corrections: 1. In the Import statement, it reads, "select and xml file" with "select an xml file." 2. In the System Information statement, the word "requried" should be spelt as "required."
