Change Tracking reports

Information in the Change Tracking reports is mainly derived from the Discovery and Snapshot job runs in TrueSight Server Automation.  

Before you can collect data for the Change Tracking reports, you must set up and run jobs in TrueSight Server Automation. For more information, see Setting up data collection for Inventory and Change Tracking reports.

The following table summarizes the built-in Change Tracking reports. You can start with the Change Tracking Summary By Policy report to view the information and use the drill-through columns to view the detailed change information. Changes are shown in terms of number of changes and the change strings in the reports. For more information, see Running out-of-the-box reports.
