Scheduling reports

I am trying to set up report scheduling.  I have the email portion working to send the user a pdf file when they set up a report schedule.

But I can't get the part to work where it will save to a file share.

This is in Service Manager 9.40.  Under Reporting > Administration > Report Settings there is an option at the bottom for "Location for exported reports"  I have put the file share location there.  And it did not dump the file there.

I was told by HP Support to: Make sure you have already specified the path to save the exported reports and dashboards by adding the dashboard_export_path parameter to the sm.ini file.

I found this link that showed an example of setting up the dashboard_export_path parameter

http://webcache.googleusercontent.com/search?q=cache:saldLXaaED8J:86.48.81.222:6080/classic/Content/parameters/reference/startup_parameter_dashboard_export_path.htm&num=1&hl=en&gl=us&strip=1&vwsrc=0

Using that parameter in sm.ini didn't seem to work either. 

Has anyone gotten report scheduling to work to export to a file share and how exactly did you set it up?

Re: Scheduling reports

We are able to send reports through email (just not save to a file share)

In addition to checking the option "Export reports via email by default" under Reporting > Administration > Report Settings I had to add the following line to the sm.cfg file on the server:

sm -JVMOption0:-Xms1024m -JVMOption1:-Xmx1024m report.export

Re: Scheduling reports

Hello,

I know that this thread is quite old (May be before 3 years), but just thought of informing the solution. Below details are what I generally configure in SM 9.4x / 9.5x and 9.6x and every time it worked. Please have a look.

sm.cfg File:
#Reporting
#This starts 4 Background processes for the report scheduler
sm report.export -log:../logs/report.log


sm.ini File:
#Reporting
#Tells SM where to export reports if export to File Server
dashboard_export:C:\Reports

 

 

Regards,

Avi
