Creating an archive view to look at data in archived forms

To see data from archived forms, you must create an archive view based on the existing view. This topic describes how to look for an archived form, and then create a new view for this archived form. You can also create a join in the new view you create.

The following video (6:37) describes how you can create a join in a new view in Remedy Smart Reporting.

The example in this topic creates an archive view for the BMC Remedy Incident Management view.


Make sure you have set the Archive Process Policy for the required forms. For more information about archiving process policies, see Manually running an escalation in Remedy AR System .

  1. Log in to Remedy Mid Tier as a reporting administrator.
  2. From the Applications menu, select Smart Reporting > Smart Reporting console.
  3. On the Remedy Smart Reporting console, select Administration > Admin Console.
