Generating a Report

The ARM comes with a number of preconfigured reports to help you start analyzing data right away. The built-in reports were designed to respond to the most common data analysis requests. Refer to Preconfigured Reports for a list of available reports.

If you are using SQL Express as your database, you may not be able to generate a report remotely, unless the connecting account is a trusted SQL Server connection (i.e., if SQL Server and the remote computer are in the same domain, or if SQL Server is configured to allow "mixed authentication.")

To generate a report

  1. In the administration interface, connect to EFT and the reports database, and then click the Reports tab.

  2. In the left pane, click the desired report.

  3. In the right pane, specify any filters.

  4. Specify a date range from which you want pull data.

  5. Type the appropriate parameters/wildcards for the search if the following reports are used:

  6. Click Show Report. The ARM connects to the auditing database and displays the data in the right pane.

ARM displays the first page of the report as soon as the data is ready, then continues to load additional pages. You can monitor the progress of loading by watching the current page/total pages indicator on the report filter bar.

If you want to stop a report from loading, click another report in the left pane.
