Overview

Liongard's Reports allows users to easily create, save, and schedule reports using Liongard's Metrics. Reports can be created from user-generated templates or for one-time use. The Reports feature can be found in the Liongard toolbar.

Types of Reports

Reports can be created for one-time use or from a report template. If a report is going to be used on a recurring basis, creating a report template will shorten the time necessary to regenerate the report. All reports in Liongard can also be scheduled to generate automatically.

Report Templates

Report templates make building repeatable reports easier. Your team can build one template with the desired Metrics, save it, and reuse it to create Reports over and over again.

Default Templates

There are several default Liongard templates in the report template library:

  • Microsoft 365 Licensing Summary
  • Privileged Users
  • Domain & TLS/SSL Expirations

To edit Liongard created templates, you must clone the template.

Reports Permissions

Only Liongard users are able to view Liongard reports.

Environment-specific groups and roles only have access to reports and data for the appropriate Environments.

Global System Integrators can view reports and report templates. They are not able to create new reports or report templates.

All other user groups have ability to create and edit reports and report templates.

Only users with Global permissions can edit or delete other users' reports and templates.
