Device Inventory Report

The Device Inventory Report provides an at-a-glance list of all of the checks and features currently configured on all servers and workstations across the Client base with the ability to filter these results by Client, Site and Device type. This Report may prove particularly useful in identifying those devices where a required Check type is missing and when used in conjunction with Dashboard Controls the missing Check can be easily added to the device(s).

CSV Report Export Options

The CSV Report saves all the filtered information (including any hidden columns) as a CSV file in the format DATE_GENERATED-REPORTNAME.csv

As this may contain a large amount of information, we have included two export options:

Download Now: The download runs in real-time.

Depending on the Report size it may take several minutes to complete and you will have to wait until the Report has downloaded before you can continue using the Dashboard.

Run in Background: The Report is generated in the background and an email is sent to your username (email address) with a download link once it is ready

Depending on the Report size it may take several minutes to complete and you can continue work on the Dashboard whilst the Report is created

Report Layout

The Device Inventory Report is split into three main sections: device details, configured Checks and Features.

dir_main

The Columns drop-down is used to refine the Device Inventory Report and provide more targeted information. After clicking Columns enable or disable the tick-box against the required column options, where required use the up dir_up and down dir_down arrows to navigate through the list.  The Columns button also indicates the total number of columns available and the number selected. When viewing the Report, click on the column heading to re-order the data.

dir_column dir_column_list

Configured Checks are represented in the Report by green ticks whilst the current state of enabled features is indicted by colored dots: green for Active, gray for Pending etc. Where a Check or Feature is not setup for the device the entry under the appropriate column is left blank.

To display the name of the Feature or Check type simply hover over the column icon

An explanation of the iconography used in the Report is available under the Legend button.

Report Export Options

After the HTML version of the Report is generated, two export options become available above the main window:

CSV Export: saves all of the filtered information (including any hidden columns) as a CSV file in the format DATE_GENERATED-DeviceInventoryReport.csv (for example 2015-08-10-DeviceInventoryReport.csv)

Print: prints the current report view as is (this excludes any hidden columns). The print options available will depend on the configuration of the device the Device Inventory Report is viewed on.

Name Changes

Pre-Dashboard 5.15.1 this report was titled the Check Inventory Report.

Pre-Dashboard v5.44.5, the Failed Login Check was known as the Hacker Check. This was renamed to more accurately reflect the Check's function.
