[MM-A01] Audit - Object Activity Summary

Purpose

The purpose of this report is to report on Object Activity per month for a given period of days (default 90 days), as recorded in the MetaMiner Audit tables.

Prompts

Prompt_Example

Environments -> {FolderTypes -> {FolderPath -> {Folders}}} | {Users} | {Universes}
Environments

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in most MMSRL reports) is often used as the parent of a cascading set of subsequent prompts. The LOV will list the CMSIDs of all available Environments. The prompt return value is CMSID, but the more descriptive Environment description along with whether the Environment supports "Enhanced IA" is also detailed in the LOV entries.

FolderTypes

This optional multi-select prompt features in most reports and again is often used as the parent of a cascading set of subsequent prompts for their LOVs and its own LOV cascades from the Environments prompt.

FolderPath

This mandatory mono-select prompt (with its default set to wildcard %) features in most reports with its LOV determined by FolderTypes and again is often used as the parent of a cascading set of subsequent prompts.

Folders

This optional multi-select prompt features in most reports, which benefit the report output by restricting the folders being reported against. Its LOV is determined by the preceding prompts, including the FolderPath prompt (if changed from the default wildcard of %).

Users

This optional multi-select prompt allows the user to restrict the report to selected Users. The LOV should list all Users available in the Environments selected in the prompt above. Its LOV cascades from the Environments prompt so if no Environments are selected in the prior prompt then no LOV entries will be listed.

Universes

This optional multi-select prompt allows the user to restrict the report to actions performed against documents utilising the selected Universes. The LOV will list all Universes available in the Environments selected in the prompt above. Its LOV cascades from the Environments prompt so if no Environments are selected in that prompt then no LOV entries will be listed.

Action Age (Days)

This mandatory mono-entry prompt (default set to 90 days) allows the user to adjust what period the report will restrict its results to.

Is an Instance?

This optional mono-select prompt allows the user to restrict the report to Instances or Non-Instances. The LOV will offer Yes or No.

EventTypes

This optional multi-select prompt allows the user to restrict the report to actions relating to the selected EventTypes. The LOV will list the set of EventTypes available.

Exclude Audit Users

This optional multi-select prompt allows the user to restrict the report to exclude certain Audit Users.

Refresh Values can take a long time...

The LOV for selecting "Audit Users to Exclude" is not restricted to the previously selected Environment and because it is based on a large table can take a long time to Refresh!

Include MetaMinerAdmin

This mandatory mono-select prompt (default set to No) features in many Audit reports in order to filter out Audit entries relating to activities triggered by MetaMiner.

Input Controls

Input_Control_Example

Prompt Selection

Allows the user to reveal / hide the display of the Prompt Selection (can also include Input Control Selection too).

"Spaced" option

The default "Spaced" option reveals the Prompt Selection (below the report header), but also reformats lists to be more readable by adding a space between listed items.

"Show" option

The alternative "Show" option reveals the Prompt Selection (below the report header), without reformatting lists with a space between listed items.

"Hide" option

The "Hide" option hides the Prompt Selection.

Environment / CMSID

Allows the user to switch the display of Environment (within the report) between CMSID and CMS display name (as configured in MetaMiner Administrator).

Warning

Although this Input Control switches the display within the report's results, it does not affect what is listed in the Environment input control, which always lists CMSID. The same is true for the Environments prompt (during prompt selection) and the display of Environments (within the prompt selection block).

Number Format
