Device reports give you instant information on a set of devices that you have previously selected based on certain criteria. For that result set, you'll see various charts such as top vendors and top locations, a timeline that shows the development of the number of devices in that result set over time, and finally a list of the devices in the result set.
In the following example we have created a report that shows devices affected by Rockwell product notice 2023-04-22, which exposed problems with specific versions of Studio Logix 5000 Logix Designer.
The report allows us to see right away, for example, that the majority of affected devices is located in the Charlotte plant. We also see that most of the affected devices use Windows 7 Enterprise.
The timeline below shows that except for a small reduction of affected devices in May 2023 (where the number went from 54 to 50), nothing has happened.
Finally, we get a list of the individual devices, that can be re-sorted by clicking on any of the column headers.
Creating a device report
All you have to do to create a device report is to go to INVENTORY/SEARCH, craft your filter criteria, and save that search within Manage Searches.
A saved search will automatically create a report. However, it may take up to 24 hours until the report is fully populated with data.
