The Audit Reports feature provides the ability to create and manage audit reports in the IdM Suite. The functionality is backed by a database view whose columns are fetched and presented to the administrator,, From which he can select desired columns to display in reports. Reports can be of summary and detail formats. This feature also enables creating view/report filters, as well as the ability to export the results to a CSV file that is automatically launched to Excel. The audit reports can also be scheduled to run at specified intervals. This feature enables creating schedules for reports and executing them from Admin UI as well as from the Self-Service Portal.
Audit Reports can be generated for any IdM Suite feature (i.e., Approval, Authentication, Compliance, Configuration, HPAM, Password Reset, Provisioning Policy, Security, Self-Service, etc.) and used to create a quick and easy reporting view.
This feature requires that the XXXADMIN user be allowed to view system database tables. The select privileges for these system tables have been added to the standard IdM Suite installation.
The Audit Reports feature enables a database view to be dynamically displayed from the Admin UI through the use of a set of tables that map that view's fields to a dynamic Web page creation facility. This facility also enables report filters to be created, as well as data sorting and grouping. Up to fifteen columns can be configured for display on the summary screen, with an unlimited number of detail fields on the detail screen. The report can be viewed in summary or detail formats and it can also be exported to a flat file format (CSV, comma delimited, etc.) and then displayed using Microsoft Excel. Reports can also be scheduled to run at specified intervals. Users with appropriate authorization can view a selected list of reports and request scheduling of one or more of them from Self-Service Portal.
