The Schedule Report wizard generates a report by creating a report generation job. A report is generated on the current data in the reporting database. The reports are generated only on the evaluated assets and standards. After you have created the job, you can view the current job status in Monitor > Jobs view. You can view the report in My Reports.
You must run the Reporting Database Synchronization job before you schedule the report. The synchronization job populates the database with the data in the production database. The synchronization job is an existing job and is in the Monitor > Jobs view. If you create the report before the synchronization job completes its run, you may see a blank report.
If you attach a report, the report displays the date and time of the operating system where the Application Server is installed. In a remote console, the report displays the date and time of the operating system where the Application Server is installed.
Each report has different scalability limitations. For example, the remediation report is designed to handle large result sets. For most of the predefined reports, you should be sure that your report fits within the limitation. A report may fail or cause a system slowdown if the limitation is exceeded.
If you have changed the locale or the time zone on the Application Server, you must restart the Application Server. After you have restarted the service, you should launch the Control Compliance Suite. You should run the Reporting Database Synchronization job and then run your report generation jobs.
The report generation job may send an email to selected users when the report is ready. Report notification must be implemented as a part of the reporting job workflow. The report notification has SMTP requirements.
Each schedule report wizard has a different sequence of panels. The panels that you complete depend on the business logic of the report.
As a prerequisite for the CCS System Auditing report, you must enable auditing from the Settings > General > System Configuration area.
