Analyzing services by running reports

Use the Report Console to access predefined reports to analyze your services. By default, when you run a report, the system uses any built-in query to select the records to be included in the report. You can manage the scope of a predefined report by applying a qualification.

If you modify the prepared reports supplied with the application, Customer Support can provide only limited assistance for reporting problems. There is no guarantee that problems resulting from these modifications can be solved. The standard reports included with the application are designed to be used without modification.

The Web report type provides users the ability to create well formatted reports through a browser. Results can be returned in the form of a list, many styles of charts, or a list and chart together. Web reports can contain links that allow you to drill down from the report to view the data upon which the report is based. Web reports can be saved in several standard formats, including Adobe PDF and Postscript, and Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint formats.

Predefined reports

The following table lists the predefined reports that are installed with BMC Service Request Management, and related reports that require BMC Service Level Management. If you have other BMC Remedy applications installed, additional reports are listed in the Report Console. For information about reports that are provided with other applications, see the appropriate documentation.
