Reports allow you to combine multiple dashboard widgets to create a document that displays certain information contained within a Graylog system organized for specific purposes.
Create a report on the “Operations/Reports” page in the web interface.
Click on the Create report button to get started. The page contains two different sections:
Contents— Use the form to configure the report’s cover page, a short description, and select the widgets that will be part of the report.
Report summary— Displays a summary of the report data. Summary information appears on the right side of the page and will follow as you scroll through the page.
When you are satisfied with the content, click on *Create report *to store that configuration in the database.
To change the selected contents of a report, go to the “Operations/Reports” page, and click on the Contents button for the report you wish to modify.
On the "New reports" page is a blank form that provides fields and an upload prompt to customize the report's contents.
Editing Report Attributes
When you create a new report, you can evaluate and edit attributes, such as dashboard, page, and widgets. Click the Edit icon to redirect to the related edit page.
The Report Configuration page provides options to schedule the report for delivery and to configure the layout of the report.
Go to the “Operations/Reports” page, and click on Configuration to open the "Report Configuration" page.
In the scheduling section, configure how often the report will be sent (hourly, daily, weekly, or monthly).
You can add a subject and body to the email that will contain the report, and select Graylog users or external email addresses that will receive the report as email.
Once you update the information, make sure to click on Update scheduling to save your changes.
Much like in a dashboard, you can drag and drop widgets on the virtual sheet of paper to select the order in which widgets will appear in the report. The layout automatically saves the rearranged widgets.
Please note that the cover page is always the first page of the report, and the next page starts with the report description, followed by all widgets in their configured order.
As the background generation of reports may fail, the "Report History" page can uncover errors that occurred during report generation and the sending of a report in the background.
To open the "Report history" page for a report, click on the More actions button for that report, and select Report history.
