Reporting Groups

The Reports > Options > Reporting Groups page allows you to set the user groups on which a report can be generated. If Active Directory or eDirectory access has been properly configured, the Available groups list is populated with your organization's groups from that directory service.

If your Web Appliance is configured to access a single-domain Active Directory server, Active Directory group names are displayed in the form "groupname"; if the Web Appliance is configured to access the global catalog of a multidomain Active Directory forest, Active Directory group names are displayed in the form "domain\groupname". All eDirectory names are displayed in the group.context format.

Alternatively, or additionally, you can create, edit, and delete custom groups. Once the Available groups list is populated to meet your requirements, you can move groups into the Reporting groups list. The groups in the Reporting groups list are displayed on the Report on a group drop-down list on the Report Parameters sidebar of the following reports:

Note
Reporting data is restricted based on choices made when creating reporting groups. A full administrator has access to all information. However, when a limited administrator searches by IP, the results only include users that came from that IP address and that are in the dataset. If a reporting group has an IP address in it, all data will be given for that IP address, regardless of users. For more information, see "Administrators."
