N-central Help

Add a scheduled report

Set up reports that SolarWinds N-central generates and emails to recipients on a regular basis.

This procedure can only be done at the Customer or Site-level.

  1. Click Reports > Scheduled Reports.
  2. Click Add and select a report from the category fly-outs.
  3. In the Report Type field, select a report.
  4. Enter a Name.
  5. In the Recurrencefield, select the frequency that SolarWinds N-central generates the report.

    Configuring a Daily scheduled report will generate a new report at 3:00 am. The reporting period runs from 12:00 pm to 12:00 pm; therefore, the report information will be three hours old when it is generated.

  6. Select the Recipients and enter additional users in the Non-System Recipients field, separated by a comma.
  7. Enter a Summary to be included in the report.
  8. In the Export Format drop-down list box select a file format for the report.
  9. Click Preview Report to see what the report will look like.
  10. Click Save.

SolarWinds N-central saves the scheduled report and it appears in the Scheduled Reports list. At the configured time, SolarWinds N-central runs the reports against the information requested and sends it to the selected recipients.
