    Missing FROM/Duration Field in Orion Report Writer

    superfly007

      Hi Guys!

       

      I am really new to Solarwinds and I am trying to figure out how to write custom reports but I am running into a few problems and wanted to see if anyone can help!

       

      • In the Layout Builder section I do not see a "FROM" (duration) option for my reports in which I can choose the time frame for the data.  I have seen this option on some Solarwinds videos I watched but can't figure out how to add it??Screenshot.JPG
      • Second question is I can't find what Orion Object represents the system temperature, any idea under what category and object name this might be?   I don't see a Hardware Monitoring Orion Object, any ideas?

      Thanks!

          This really depends on what you are looking to get, but I think that I have something like what you are looking for.

          First option - you don't get the "From" in the Content Editor until you've selected a field with a related timestamp in the table.

          After you've added that, and submitted the change, then the "From" field becomes available.

          Second question - I'm pretty sure that the field you are looking for is under Node\Hardware Category\Hardware Sensor.
