OP5 Log Analytics contains a module for creating reports that can be run cyclically and contain only interesting data, e.g. a weekly sales report.
To go to the reports windows, select to tiles icon from the main menu bar, and then go to the „Reports” icon (To go back, go to the „Search” icon).
To export data to CSV Report click the Reports icon, you immediately go to the first tab - Export Task Management.
In this tab we have the opportunity to specify the source from which we want to do export. It can be an index pattern. After selecting it, we confirm the selection with the Submit button and a report is created at the moment. The symbol can refresh the list of reports and see what its status is.
We can also create a report by pointing to a specific index from the drop-down list of indexes.
We can also check which fields are to be included in the report. The selection is confirmed by the Submit button.
When the process of generating the report (Status:Completed) is finished, we can download it (Download button) or delete (Delete button). The downloaded report in the form of *.csv file can be opened in the browser or saved to the disk.
In this tab, the downloaded data has a format that we can import into other systems for further analysis.
In the Export Dashboard tab we have the possibility to create graphic reports in PDF files. To create such a report, just from the drop-down list of previously created and saved Dashboards, indicate the one we are interested in, and then confirm the selection with the Submit button. A newly created export with the Processing status will appear on the list under Dashboard Name. When the processing is completed, the Status changes to Complete and it will be possible to download the report.
By clicking the Download button, the report is downloaded to the disk or we can open it in the PDF file browser. There is also to option of deleting the report with the Delete button.
Below is an example report from the Dashboard template generated and downloaded as a PDF file.
