The Report generation job is a user-defined job that is run to generate reports using data from the reporting database. To generate reports, the data in the production database must be synchronized with the reporting database using the Report data synchronization job. However, the Report generation job generates a blank report in case the data in the production database is not synchronized with the reporting database. Hence, you must execute the Report Synchronization job first in order to run the Report generation job.
The Report generation job generates the following types of reports:
CCS provides predefined report templates to generate reports. You can customize some of the report templates based on your requirement.
You can configure the Report generation job to add or remove viewers for the generated reports. You can also configure the job to send an email of job completion information to selected users when the report is ready. Further, you can also export the reports in various formats.
You can schedule the generation of reports from the appropriate templates either immediately or at a specified date and time. You can also configure the 'Notification' setting to notify the user about its success or failure.
