Environment

Novell ZENworks 7.5 Asset Management - ZAM7.5

Situation

Enhancement request to allow user input when a user is running a report. Currently the only way to change the value of the criteria in a report is to edit the report itself.

Resolution

Added to ZAM 7.5 IR 4
On the Custom Report edit dialog, each criteria row (not summary criteria) has a gray '*' to the left. Clicking on a '*' causes it to turn black, indicating that the criterion should be made available for"dynamic" editing - i.e. editing from the report definition page, just prior to running the report.
Only one criterion can be selected at a time for dynamic editing. When selected for dynamic editing, the value is editable. The opertator and field are not.
The "in list" operator does not allow dynamic editing.
The "within" date operator does not allow dynamic editing.

If downloading the Interim Release manually from https://download.novell.com, search for ZENworks 7.5 Asset Managment IR 4. The Interim releases can also 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 for details of how to set up automatic downloads if desired.

Each interim release is cumulative. If Interim Release 4 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.
