Viewing reports

To view reports

You can view reports from the License Report tab, or from the user\Reports folder where the License Utility is installed.

Note

  • Each time reports are run, they are stored in the user\Reports folder where the License Utility is installed ($LicenseUsageCollectorHome\licenseusagecollector\user\Reports\timestamp folder)
  • Folders containing the reports are named with the date and timestamp when the reports were run. For example, an ARS report generated on July 1, 2015 at 4:23 PM EDT, would appear in the following folder: 
    $LicenseUsageCollectorHome\licenseusagecollector\user\Reports\150701_162314_LUCU
  • For BSA 8.7 to 8.9.02 and TrueSight Server Automation 8.9.03 onwards (formerly BSA) the reports are stored in user\Reports\date and time stamp\Blade
  • For BSA 8.2 to 8.6, the reports are stored in user\Reports\date and time stamp\BSA
