Sentinel 7 Reports for IDM and eDirectory


Hi!

Does anyone know if there is any report pack for Sentinel 7 regarding
to IDM or eDirectory events? I believe the collector packs included on
Sentinel download site are for Sentinel 6.1 so they won't work on
Sentinel 7 because of the database backend and I couldn't find anything
pointing to which reports are compatible with Sentinel 7.
Or are this reports already embedded on Sentinel 7 ?

Regards!
Nicolas

I do not think anything has been released yet from Novell/NetIQ. The
collectors are being refreshed, though, so there should be some soon.

What kind of data are you after? The reporting capabilities within
Sentinel 7 do not stop with the shipped reports, depending on what you
want. Either saving searches as reports can be done in a few seconds,
or customization with the Plug-in SDK can do just about anything if needed.

Good luck.

Re: Sentinel 7 Reports for IDM and eDirectory


I've already developed a few custom reports using iReport for Sentinel 7
but the customer said he was told that Novell ships a few standard
reports for IDM and for eDirectory. Since I couldn't find them anywhere
I wanted to make sure that they weren't available yet...

I guess we'll stick to custom reports for the time being...

Do you know if there's any estimated time on when would them be
available?

Thanks anyway!

Well, I found out a bit more information.

First, I'm really interested in the type of data that customers really
need/want. The reason is that reports can be created to show all kinds
of stuff, including worthless stuff, and that is what the company is
trying to avoid. Previously standard reports were released for all
collectors that basically showed some interesting statistical
information but otherwise were not really unique. Those kinds of
reports can largely be done via the web interface these days so they
will not be released separately in the collector packs going forward.

For the generic types of reports like count summaries or event details
just use the Web UI and save as an event list or a visualization or
whatever you need.

Going forward the Collector Packs will specialized report templates
built in that are specific to those collectors. I still do not have any
kind of ETA on the next collector with its associated collector pack,
though.

Good luck.
