Reporting in the cloud platform

The Lansweeper cloud platform is a feature that is currently in development. You can find more information on it and an early access signup form in the Enterprise menu of Lansweeper 7.1 (or higher) installations. Keep in mind that the information in this knowledge base article does not provide access to the cloud platform. It simply explains how to manage cloud reports once you are granted access.

The Lansweeper cloud platform includes a new and intuitive reporting engine. All reports can be found under the Reports menu of the cloud site and are split up into 5 main categories: Audit, Hardware, Security & Risks, Software and User. By clicking one of the categories, you can view just the reports in that specific category. While there are built-in reports, you can of course create your own as well. The underlying database of the cloud platform is MongoDB, and to query it GraphQL is used.

Create a new report

To create a new report, go to Reports and then Create new report. Provide a name for the report and select the category you want to save it in. Afterward, click Build report

To add fields to the report, drag them from the available fields on the left to the Columns section at the top of the report page or start typing the name of the field in the Columns section.

Fields can be removed by clicking on the x next to the field. Functions that are available for a field can be selected by clicking on the drop-down arrow next to it. The available functions depend on the field type that is selected.

Extra filters can be added by clicking Add filter criteria. Multiple filters can be added. The available operands depend on the field type that is selected.

When a report is edited, a history of changes is stored. You can revert to a previously stored version of a report by clicking on Version history

At the bottom of the report, when editing it, the GraphQL editor can be opened, to view the report query. The report query can also be altered using this GraphQL editor. Once you've done so, click Execute to apply the changes.

When a report is finished, don't forget to save by clicking on the Save icon in the top right corner of the page.

Duplicate an existing report

Built-in reports cannot be changed or deleted. They can be copied to a new report by clicking on the Duplicate icon in the top right corner of the report.

After duplicating a report, it can be edited and changed by clicking on the Edit button.

After applying changes in the report as described earlier in this article, don't forget to save the report by clicking on the Save icon.

Chart types

The cloud platform's reporting engine also offers charts. Reports can be displayed as visual charts by selecting the appropriate chart type in the upper right corner of the report editor. The following chart types are available: Data Table, Bar chart, Calendar Chart, Line Chart, Pie Chart, Scatter Plot Chart, Radar Chart. Below you can see an example of a pie chart that displays the number of assets per asset type.
