Dear,

the below link describes how to schedule a report and save it to the file system.

https://docs.microfocus.com/UCMDB/2018.05/ucmdb-docs/docs/eng/doc_lib/Content/modeling/Reports_t_save_to_filesystem.htm

having said, it may require simple FTP movement from local to another.

With Kind Regards,

We have 3 UCMDB servers in an HA configuration. A scheduled report may run on any of the servers. So, in order to have all the reports at a single location, we also needed to setup a file transfer to push the report files to a shared directory. It would indeed be very useful to be able to use a remote path (CIFS, NFS, WebService, etc.) for the reports.

I would like to add to the idea the possibility of having multiple destinations, just like the address book for sending a report by email.

That's a more-than-great idea, a feature that we are hoping for since almost 10 years on our side. Currently, we are obliged to use ConnectIT software to be able to pull-out reports from uCMDB and to be able to push it via FTP towards another location. That's time & resouce-consuming (report must be modeled twice, in uCMDB and ConnectIT).

Having the ability to schedule FTP pushes of reports from within the Report Modeling studio would be a dream come true.
