Adding a component in TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform


As a component administrator, you can add a component in TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform. 

After you add a component in TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform:

  • The component views and reports are automatically imported in TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform.
  • You can open TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform from the component user interface
  • You can create custom reports by using the component views.

You can add multiple components in TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform. However, you can add only a single instance of a component type. For example, you can add both TrueSight Server Automation and TrueSight Network Automation as components. However, you can add only a single instance of TrueSight Server Automation and a single instance of TrueSight Network Automation at a time.

If you try to add an additional instance of the component, the following message is displayed:

The component is already registered.

Before you begin

  • Ensure that you are a component administrator.
  • If you have installed TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform on Windows and if you are planning to use the Chrome or Microsoft Edge browser to access TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform, you must import CA-signed certificates for TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform. Ensure that the connection to TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform is in the secure mode for all clients.
    If you cannot import a CA-signed certificate and want to use a self-signed certificate, access TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform on any browser other than Chrome or Microsoft Edge, for example, Mozilla Firefox.

  • If you are adding any of the following components, ensure that ETL has run successfully at least once for each component:

    • TrueSight Server Automation - Data Warehouse

    • TrueSight Network Automation - Data Warehouse

To add a component

Do the following:

  1. If you are adding TrueSight Server Automation - Data Warehouse version 8.9.04 Patch 3 as a component, do the following:

    1. From this page, download the JobActivity.yfx file:
      https://communities.bmc.com/docs/DOC-125596  
    2. Save the JobActivity.yfx file in the $BDS_HOME/bsa/bi/model/19201/ directory.

      Is this mandatory for TrueSight Server Automation - Data Warehouse version 8.9.04 Patch 3?

      Yes.
      These steps are required because the Job Activity view in TrueSight Server Automation - Data Warehouse version 8.9.04 Patch 3 increases the CPU usage of the TrueSight Smart Reporting - Platform server by up to 100%.

  2. Use the following URL to open the Login page:
    https://<TrueSight Smart Reporting hostname>:<port>/tsr
