MetaMiner Standard Reports Library

This section describes the Webi reports that are delivered as part of the MetaMiner Standard Reports Library.

These reports have been sub categorised as follows:

  • Audit Reports
  • Webi IA Reports
  • Crystal IA Reports
  • General Documents Reports
  • Universe Reports
  • Server Reports

Purpose

The purpose of each report will be described in their relevant sections.

Prompts

Example1 (ENVs -> {FldTypes -> {FldPath -> {Folders}}} | ...)

Prompt_Example

Environments -> {FolderTypes -> {FolderPath -> {Folders}}} | ...
Environments

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in all 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 listing.

FolderTypes

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in all "document based" MMSRL reports) is used as the parent of a cascading set of subsequent prompts for their LOVs and the LOV cascades from the Environments prompt.

FolderPath

This mandatory mono-select prompt (featuring in all "document based" MMSRL reports) is used (with its default set to wildcard %) to restrict the folders being reported against. It is also used as part of a cascaading set of prompts for their LOVs and the LOV cascades from the Environments & FolderTypes prompt selections.

Folders

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in all "document based" MMSRL reports) allows the user to restrict the folders being reported against. Its LOV is determined by the preceding prompts, including the FolderPath prompt (if changed from the default wildcard of %).

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.

Example2 (ENVs -> {UNIs -> {OBJs}} | ...)

Prompt_Example

Environments -> {Universes -> {Objects}} | ...
Environments

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in all 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 listing.

Universes

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in "universe based" MMSRL reports) allows the user to restrict the report to 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.

Objects

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in MM-U01, where object restriction is required) allows the user to restrict the report to selected universe objects. The LOV will list the set of Objects available in all universes in the selected Environments. Its LOV cascades from the Environments prompt so if no Environments are selected then no LOV entries will be listed.

UniverseCUIDs

This optional multi-select prompt (featuring in MM-U01) allows this report to be run as a hyperlinked child report, where universes of interest can be passed straight in by the parent report (via UniverseCUID), as such no LOV is provided and this prompt can be ignored in regular "Refresh on Open" use.

Sample Layouts

Here follows a couple of example report layouts:

Example1 [MM-A01]

Example2 [MM-U01]

The "in document" onward hyperlinks (allowing for further "in depth" guided analysis) will be detailed for each document's report tab.

Input Controls

Common Set1 (from [MM-A01])

Webi reports, delivered as part of the MetaMiner Standard Report Library, will have many of the following standard set of Input Controls.

Input_Control_Example 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).

Folder / Complete

Allows the user to switch the display of the Folder within the report between the Folder or Complete Folder Path.

Number Format

Allows the user to switch the display of certain metrics to a more readable number format.

Environment

Allows the user to filter the report results to a selected CMSID.

Warning

Although this Input Control is named Environment, it always works on CMSID regardless of the prior Environment / CMSID selection.

Folder

Allows the user to filter the report results to the selected Folder Path.

Common Set2 (from [MM-U01])

Webi reports, delivered as part of the MetaMiner Standard Report Library, may have some of the following standard set of Input Controls.

Input_Control_Example

Prompt Selection

"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).

Expand?

Allows the user to switch the display (of certain verbose fields) to Expand multi row results or abbreviate multi row results to a single row.

Environment
