How to get started with the Report builder

Version 2

    Introduction

    Introduced in VeSys 2014.1, the Report Builder found under the Tools menu allows users to create their own simple reports. The action requires an open design and then it can be launched. Once launched the user can select from the list of available objects to report on, which differs between VeSys Design an VeSys Harness and you can add/remove columns and specify the desired attributes or properties.

     

    Once finished the report can be saved and re-edited at any stage. It will be automatically deployed and is immediately available under Tools--> reports.

    Attribute Note:

    In addition to the attributes seen on the pill objects from their pull down menu it is also possible to define 'user specified' attributes, the names of these can be checked in the $VESYS_HOME\doc\plugin\api\AttributeList.html file against each object type. Note the object type is prefixed with an 'IX' E.G for connectors look for IXConnector.
