Custom subchapters

List of the reporting subchapters created from custom queries to the SPS connection database. The list of tables and fields you can query are described in "Database tables available for custom queries" in the Administration Guide.

URL
GET https://<IP-address-of-SPS>/api/configuration/reporting/custom_subchapters
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).

Sample request

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

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

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

chart Top level element Defines the properties of the chart generated from the database query.
type string

Defines the chart type.

  • Use bar to generate a bar chart.

    You have to provide the y_axis_title element for bar charts (its can be null).

  • Use pie to generate pie a chart.

  • Use list to generate a list.

    You have to provide the column_titles element for lists (it can be null).

y_axis_title string

Required if the type element is set to bar.

The name of the y axis for the generated bar chart.

column_titles list

Required if the type element is set to list.

The column titles for the generated list.

name string The name of the subchapter.
query string

Caution:

Generating a report that includes an Advanced statistics chapter that returns several thousands of entries requires significant CPU and memory resources from One Identity Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS). While generating such a partial report, the web interface of SPS can become slow or unresponsive.

Examples:

Create a bar chart with a custom title for the y-axis:

"chart": {
  "type": "bar",
  "y_axis_title": "Y_axis"
}

Create a pie chart:

"chart": {
  "type": "pie"
}

Create a list with custom column names:

"chart": {
  "column_titles": [
    "col1",
    "col2"
  ],
  "type": "list"
}
