Re: UCMDB Reports

Gold master report is basically for coamparing CIs. You can select one CI make it as master and you can compare it with n number of different CIs by just pulling them in the window below to master in admin > report manager

Re: UCMDB Reports

the idea behind gold master reports is to compare same type CIs.

it makes no sense to compare different type CIs (like comparing a host to a IP)
.

the gold master reports works the same as the compare 2 CIs. except it's comparing one selected cI (master CI) to a number of CI's of the same type.

Re: UCMDB Reports

One example for gold master could be if you want to ensure that all you windows hosts i.e. the windows CI have OS installed as Windows Advanced Server instead of Windows professional. So you can keep that as the gold master and compare other windows CI to the gold master to determine the ones that need to have the OS updated.

Re: UCMDB Reports

We've tried to do similar type of reporting, but have always had to export the data to CSV or Excel and manipulate the information to make it useful to the groups requesting the reports. This has been a very frustrating and time consuming process. One recent effort, comparing DR environments involved exporting to Excel, importing that data to MS Access and generating multiple reports from there. The turnaround time did not make the requesters very happy especially since they wanted a repeatable process and a link to generate the report without relying on our team having to get so involved each time. We've heard for a long time that reporting was going to be improved but always in some future (unknown) version. We wish they'd 'step-up' on this.

Re: UCMDB Reports

VeerRaju,

i may nto understood you correclty, but Gold master report doesn't seem to be the correct choice for what you want.

if you want to get a report of all changes in the environment, i suggest resorting to a different type of reports like compare snapshots.

Re: UCMDB Reports

I would like to know if there is a way that I can generate gold master reports to automatically run and be emailed at a specific interval. Let me know!

Thanks,
