Generate Report Shortcut

You can request a report generation by clicking Create_New_Template.PNG, which is available in the templates list for each template. This option is available only for the custom templates.

Once you click the button, the report is automatically generated based on the pre-defined filters. The report name consists of the template name concatenated with an internal ID generated by the service.

If you intend to change the report parameters in some occasional situations, use the Generate Report button and Edit the Report.

Editing the Report and Template

You can edit a report by clicking on the edit icon when generating a report and changing the pre-defined filters Edit.png.

  • If you generate a report based on a Default template, you will have the Edit Report option available. Defining filters is mandatory for default templates, so the Generate button appears enabled only after you have finished editing the report and defining the mandatory filters for the selected template type.

  • Two options are available if you generate the report based on a Custom template: Edit Report and Edit Template.


For both options, Edit Report and Edit Template are enabled only if you have the proper permissions.

Edit Report

This option allows you to change the report definitions and filters for this request and generation. The changes do not apply to the template itself.

Once you click the Edit Report button, you will see the template General and Filters definitions in edit mode, so you can apply the desired changes before requesting the report generation.


After editing the parameters, you can click Generate_Button.PNG to request the report generation.

To cancel changes and proceed with the pre-defined configurations, click Cancel.

Edit Template

This option allows you to change the general definitions and filters of the template. These changes apply to the template itself.

Once you click the Edit Template button, you will see the template General definitions and Filters in edit mode so that you can apply the desired changes to the template.
