Reporting

List of endpoints for configuring reporting, and accessing the generated reports.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/reporting
Cookies
Cookie name Description Required Values
session_id Contains the authentication token of the user Required

The value of the session ID cookie received from the REST server in the authentication response, for example, a1f71d030e657634730b9e887cb59a5e56162860. For details on authentication, see Authenticate to the SPS REST API.

Note that this session ID refers to the connection between the REST client and the SPS REST API. It is not related to the sessions that SPS records (and which also have a session ID, but in a different format).

Element Type Description
key string Top level element, contains the ID of the report
body Top level element (string) The elements of the report.
access list

Required. List of access control groups whose members can access the subchapter.

To deny access to the report, use "admin" as the only value for the element.

chapters Top level item A chapter of the report.
email_recipients Top level item Contains the list of e-mails where the generated report is sent.
recipients list

Custom list of e-mails where the generated report is sent.

To use a custom list, the selection element must be set to other.

selection string

This element can have two values:

  • default uses the e-mail address configured in the reporting_address element of the https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/management/email endpoint (or the Basic Settings > Management > Mail settings > Send reports to field on the web UI).

  • other uses the e-mails listed in the recipients element.

frequency Top level item Contains the list of options for defining the frequency of generating the report.
day boolean

Set it to true to generate the report each day.

month boolean

Set it to true to generate the report each month.

week boolean

Set it to true to generate the report each week.

logo_id string

The ID of the custom logo. The null value means the report is generated using the default logo.

You can upload a custom logo on the web UI of SPS, using the Reporting > Configuration > <report> > Choose new logo button.

name string The name of the report.
send_report_in_email boolean Set it to false if you do not want to include the generated report in the e-mail.
Chapters elements Type Description
name string Name of the chapter.
subchapters list List of subchapters included in the chapter.
name string

Name of the built-in subchapter included in the chapter. For the list of the built-in subchapters, see Built-in subchapters.

To include a built-in subchapter, use the value of its name element, not the key.

reference string

The key of the custom, content, or statistics subchapter.

  • For the keys of the reporting subchapters created from custom queries to the SPS connection database, see the custom_subchapters endpoint.

  • For the keys of the reporting subchapters created from audit trail content (statistics of search keywords, and screenshots), see the reporting/content_subchapters endpoint.

  • For the keys of the reporting subchapters created from connection statistics, see the reporting/statistics_subchapters endpoint.

To include a custom, content, or statistics subchapter, use the value of its key element, not the name.

selection string

This element can have two values:

  • Set builtin for the default reporting subchapters.

  • Set custom for all other subchapters (custom, content or statistics).

Examples:

Set the e-mail recipients to the default (as configured in the reporting_address element of the /api/configuration/management/email endpoint):

"email_recipients": {
  "selection": "default"
}

Create a custom set of e-mail recipients:

"email_recipients": {
  "recipients": [
    "<email-1>",
    "<email-2>"
  ],
  "selection": "other"
}

Add a reporting chapter with built-in subchapters:

"chapters": [
  {
    "name": "<custom-name>",
    "subchapters": [
      {
        "name": "system_health_filesystem_usage",
        "selection": "builtin"
      },
      {
        "name": "system_health_network_connections",
        "selection": "builtin"
      },
      {
        "name": "system_health_load_average",
        "selection": "builtin"
      }
    ]
  }
        

Add a reporting chapter with custom, content, or statistics subchapters:

"chapters": [
  {
    "name": "<custom-name>",
    "subchapters": [
      {
        "reference": "<key-of-subchapter>",
        "selection": "custom"
      },
      {
        "reference": "<key-of-subchapter>",
        "selection": "custom"
      }
    ]
  }
