I'll make sure that the NCM product manager sees this. In the meantime, check out this post, which shows what NCM development is currently working on.
1. Output the reports in Alphabetical or by IP address. Currently the report comes out in an unsorted list of nodes in the device group.
Can you post an example?
2. Be able to generate a compliancy % or counts.. example, I run 10 rules for compliancy, but only get the critical/warning/info colored icons across each report rules per node. Would be nice to generate a total number that meets all the rules, which % or # does not, etc
This is somewhat possible today. When editing a report, click on "Show Summary on Report". This will show you a summary with counts of each rule violated at the top. Let me know if this meets your need.
3. Not able to print anything from the NCM web. I had to build my own webserver to post the htm and xls file outputs out of NCM such as compliancy, inventory, etc. so users can view and print the files.
So, just to clarify, you're looking to export inventory and compliance reports to HTM and XLS formats? Are there any other formats that would be desirable?
Compliancy Reports Output: Can't sort the output alphabetical
Counts for each rule are ok, but still have to manually sort for each node which ones are compliant for all the rules. The summary does not give me which ones are compliant.
Export from NCM web inventory or compliancy reports to xls or htm works for me. Can always print to pdf.
