|Appendix / Example Reports|
The following example demonstrates the process of creating a new, basic report (following the instructions described in the topic Creating a Basic Report) for Hot Folder transfers. In our example, we will generate a report that displays transfer activity for Hot Folders that have been set up within Aspera Enterprise (or Connect) Server, Point_to_Point and Client. The example report, once generated, will display Hot Folder transfer start time, end time and the number of files transferred.
Select Reports from the Console menu, and then click the Manage Report Types button. On the Manage Report Types screen, click the New Basic button.
On the Create New Report Type page (for basic reports), enter the following information:
|Name||Basic Hot Folder Transfer Report|
|Description||Basic Hot Folder Transfer report, which includes start time, stop time and the number of files that were transferred.|
|How would you like to organize this report?||Select "Transfer" as the field by which to organize this report. In doing so, the report will be grouped the human-readable name that has been assigned to each hot folder transfer. A transfer represents one or multiple executions of ascp (that is., one or multiple attempts to transfer).|
|Columns to include||Select the following basic fields to include as columns:
Note: When you select a field, its definition appears in the box below.
|Sort||Select the "transfer name" field (in ascending order) to sort data inside your group.|
|Filters||In this example, we must set a filter that checks the value of the transfer cookie.
When files are transferred using Hot Folders, the transfer cookie
contains the following information:
Thus, the filter must be set to only include transfers that have a transfer cookie starting with the value aspera.sync2:.
Next, click the Create and Run button. Confirm the following settings on next page:
Once confirmed, click the Run Report button.
After clicking the Run Report button, the page will update to display the report queuing and then running. Once generated, the Web version of your basic report appears as shown below.
