Environment

Novell ZENworks 7.5 Asset Management - ZAM7.5

Situation

Need for more flexible options in running reports from the WebConsole
Reports run from WebConsole and exported are slow

Resolution

Fixed in ZENWorks Asset Management Interim Release 3 or newer
Fixes included:
On the menu at the bottom of the custom report definition page, there are now
options to run to PDF, CSV, or Excel directly (hover over the Run option and
the others will appear). These options will always run the entire report. The only way to run 100
records at a time is to go to HTML first, and then select PDF, CSV, or Excel.
Added a "Run all to HTML" option to bypass the paging for HTML
as well as CSV, PDF, and Excel.

Interim Releases can be scheduled to run automatically or can be downloaded manually at https://download.novell.com. The Interim releases can be set up within the ZAM Manager for the Task server to check the site on a scheduled basis, and download and apply them automatically. Please refer to the Help Section details of how to set up automatic downloads if desired.

Each interim release is cumulative. If Interim Release 3 is not available due to a newer interim release being placed on the website, be assured that the code needed is in the later release.
