Identity Manager 8.1.4 - Report Subscriptions Administration Guide

Creating and editing subscribable reports

In the default installation there are predefined reports available to which Web Portal users can subscribe. You can also create new reports or make copies of predefined reports to modify. All the reports available to Web Portal users for subscription are those you have set up in the Report Editor. You can set up several subscribable reports with different parameters for each report.

The One Identity Manager components for report subscriptions are available when the QER | RPS configuration parameter is set.

  • In the Designer, check if the configuration parameter is set. Otherwise, set the configuration parameter and compile the database.

  • Other configuration parameters are installed when the module is installed. Check the configuration parameters and modify them as necessary to suit your requirements.
