Custom Report

(imported topic written by cbromley91)

Hey guys…

I am trying to get a simple report out of BigFix and am having touble…

I would like a list of the currently relevant fixlets, and a list of computers under each fixlet that still needs that fixlet applied. That’s it, nothing else.

I am having trouble using the ‘create’ in web reports to get just that information. I am fairly new to bigfix, so if there is some other way that I am not seeing, please point me to it?

Hey cbromley,

Go to “create” reports in web reports, choose “Relevant Fixlets”. Then you can click on any Fixlet to get a list of the relevant computers…

We don’t have a stock report available that keeps a huge list of Fixlets/computers because the list would get too long to be useful very quickly (imagine 1000 Fixlets with 100,000 computers), but it certainly would be possible to make a custom report in that format if you really wanted it like that…

I created that report once for a 180,000 seat customer… the report ended up 15,000 pages long and took about an hour to render in IE 6. It was pretty useless :wink:
