Using Reporting

Using system:inmation’s reporting functionality, custom reports can be produced using data from any objects in your system. The integration of the reporting tools with the Lua scripting engine allows for unlimited customization and complete access to values, trends and historical data. The Report Designer display integrates the Stimulsoft Reports engine and allows you to design report layouts which can then be displayed in the Dashboard display or exported to different file formats.

Audience

This Jump Start is aimed at system administrators and other users who wish to create and design reports for data in system:inmation. By following the examples in this Jump Start, you should be able to apply the knowledge learned to develop your own reports using data items within your own system. Elements of the report design process require some knowledge of Lua scripting and data structures (particularly JSON) so it is useful to have read the Using Lua Scripting Jump Start before starting.
