  • Scheduled Reports

    Build in response to Report on where Reports are being sent - Report Lab - The Orion Platform - THWACK ( . Frist block in report shows only scheduled reports (email, save, or print). Second block shows all reports that are not scheduled (in any way). Unfortunately, the actual email addresses are stored in JSON text, so there's no way to "report" on it. If people used good names for the Actions , then you might have the information you'll need. No custom properties are used...

  • SCM SQL Reports - Content Data

    Hi all, I'm trying to create a custom report from Server Configuration Monitor data and I'm attempting to use SQL. There is a column in the SCM_ElementContents table called "Content" that I'd like to add to the report, but when I convert it to varchar from varbinary, the data appears to be encoded and I'm not sure how to get that data to display. Does anyone have any pointers to info on this? The content that I would like to have displayed is console output from a PowerShell script. Here...

  • Backup Status by last backup date - Errors Only

    This report expands on ( or contracts really ) my previously published report, here: - as previously mentioned, we have had to do a join to pull in the node name, and now I've done a JOIN to custom properties to pull in the client prefix, and a JOIN to Orion.Nodes to pull back the status. This report only shows the nodes that generated an error and what that error is. This quickly allows you to identify the nodes...

  • NCM Backup Failures and Reason (- All Clients)

    Straightforward report that shows the last time a node tried to backup and its failure message. I also included the vendor and machine type so you can see at a glance if a particular model is causing issues. Due to our environment being large ( in excess of 10K nodes ) and covering multiple clients I have also done a JOIN to Orion.NodesCustomProperties so that we can pull in the Client and Client_Site custom properties. We then sort by client and client site. As you will likely not have these...

  • SolarWinds Orion Accounts

    Build based on a Feature Request. This may not be the "ideal" way to get the information, but it does work to pull the list of accounts. It's very wide. (Like very wide) Note: I had to guess for the SAML information because I don't have any SAML accounts or groups setup in my lab. SWQL is being the scenes doing the real work.
