You can save the report configuration for future use, or generate a one-time report.

A report configuration is a customer-defined set of preferences that pulls specified criteria from the database tables and places it in a report in the specified format. The report configurations can be saved and used to run a report at a later date with live data.

You must have full or limited configuration rights to create, save, edit, copy, or delete report configurations. In addition, you must have full configuration rights to view a license key. Users with no configuration rights can only run the report configurations.

If Customer 1 with full configuration rights generates a report and a private list, then Customer 2 with full configuration rights is allowed to generate a report using the report configuration and private list that Customer 1 created. Customer 2 is allowed to edit, save, copy, and delete the report configuration but cannot delete the private list created by Customer 1.

The Open/Read of CSV format file is not supported in HP Systems Insight Manager. For example, you could not open a CSV file in HP Systems Insight Manager. Use other software such as Excel to open the CSV file.

You can also create a new report by selecting ReportsManage Reports[New].
