NetMRI New Device Report

Hello,

I am attempting to create a report that will list the new devices on our network in the past 30 days.

I have the following configured.

 

Data Type: Infrastructure Devices
Gallery Category: Asset
Description:
Filter:
Logic: 2
2: Infrastructure Devices: First Seen >= 2021-05-28
Display Columns:
Infrastructure Devices: First Seen
Infrastructure Devices: Vendor
Infrastructure Devices: Model
Infrastructure Devices: DNS Name
Infrastructure Devices: IP Address
Infrastructure Devices: Network Device?
Infrastructure Devices: OS Version
Infrastructure Devices: Chassis Serial Number
Sort By Columns:
Infrastructure Devices: First Seen (Ascending)

 

The logic filter is where I am seeking help.  I have to change the date every time I run the report.  Are there any logic functions available for this?

 

Also, other critiques or options for the report would be welcome.  

The intent of the report is for ISSOs and compliance.

Thanks,

Bob

I have a report "New Devices in past 30 days" and it works as you desire.

The Data Type is "Discovery Status".  The single filter is "Discovery Status: Exists Timestamp >= 30 days ago".

Bob,

 

Sorry for the delay.  I don't know of any logic that allows for what you want to do.  Let me do some checking for you.

Bob,

 

In the second step in the report wizard, you can set the customer logic builder to 30 days ago.  Hope this helps.

Thanks but sadly the period field is greyed out.

Thanks Marty.

It seems this custom report won't let me choose a period.

Are we talking about the same data entry?

In step 2 (report filters) select "Discovery Status: Exists Timestamp >= 30 days ago".

It seems that '"Discovery Status: Exists Timestamp >= 30 days ago"' does not appear in step #2 when choosing 'Infrastructure Devices' as the 'Data Type' in step 1 (one).  I'll give the 'Discovery Status' a go in as the 'Data Type'.

I share your pain...  When creating a custom report, I think most users start with a list of data items they want to display in a report.  It's not always obvious which of the Data Types will offer all of those.  So it requires trial and error until one succeeds or gets close enough.  It does help to read the API docs to better understand the relationships.

 

My long wish-list item is a wizard that would accept the desired outputs and figure it out for us.

The custom report with those settings seem to provide mostly anomoulous stuff.

But the date range sure worked!Smiley Happy

 

Perhaps it if give some backround on what I'm attempting to achieve.

I am attempting to provide our ISSO group an accurate listing of network stuff in a particular 'managed' environment.  Obviously we want to have active polling within that environment to ensure we capture (additions & deletions), properly manage (standard config), and report on equipment.

 

Like you said Marty, trial and error.

I believe the following document might shed some light as to what fields are available

 

If the option to select 30 days or more is greyed out you may want to check your data retention settings.

Thanks for sharing that SS.  That's a LOT of data items!
