Using Report Writer and seeing the charts available in System Manager got me to trying to do something that I can't seem to figure out. After opening a Support case my SW engineer suggested I post a Feature Request in Thwack.
I would like to have a report run once a week that replicates the graphs and charts that are available under each node in the System Manager. The reports that get outputted from the Report Writer only output tables of data. How do we re-create the charts and schedule them to run?
Building a bunch of charts in Excel and then importing data from the reports is an option, but seems like a lot of work (time and effort) that could be addressed with what I see as a valuable product feature.
Good to see you are on Thwack. You can do what you are asking today with the Orion Report Scheduler (under SolarWinds Orion>Advanced Features). The Report Scheduler asks for a URL which is normally the URL of a report through the Orion website. Nothing is restricting you from using a URL of a graph in the Orion website.
Hope this helps. Hope you are well.
While this does work, it is not supported by SolarWinds. Support would not help me with my case when I had scheduled graphs e-mailed to me.
