Cloned an out-of-box report; modifed the target Filter Collection in the Parameters and found that the Automation Notification Email sends the data with the default target Filter Collection Windows Computers with Software Update Plug-in Installed and need to have the custom Filter Collection only listed.
Worked through the following to update the default Filter Collection on a cloned out-of-box report to send Automation Notification Emails with that specific Filter Collection data:
Copied the custom FilterCollection Guid from the Console > Manage > Filters:
Highlighted the custom Filter Name > Right-click > Properties
Copied the Guid: from the bottom of the General tab:
Clicked Edit in the upper right of the Cloned Report:
Selected the FilterCollection > Edit (pencil) Icon on the Query Parameters:
Input the FilterCollection Guid from step #1 above into the Default Value and clicked OK:
Opened the Query Parameters > FilterCollection > Edit (pencil) Icon:
Input the same FilterCollection Guid from Step #1 above and clicked OK:
Rendered report to display the updated FilterCollection from the process above and found there wasn't a Filtered By: under Parameters section as it was replaced by the following:
ITMS 8.0 HF4
The process detailed above should resolve the issue; however, it appears to be a bug in the customization process for Patch Management Solution Compliance Reports.
This issue is currently being reviewed by Symantec Corp.
Workaround process as follows:
Copy the custom FilterCollection Guid from the Console > Manage > Filters:
Highlight the custom Filter Name > Right-click > Properties
Copy the Guid: from the bottom of the General tab:
Click Edit in the upper right of the Cloned Report:
Open the Parameterized Query tab
Modify the @FilterCollection to display only the FilterCollection Guid from step #1 above with single quotes and Save Changes as follows:
Advisory: The cloned report will still render with the displayed Filtered By: but the Automation Policy's Notification Email will be sent with only the rendered data from the implemented FilterCollection Guid as outlined above.
