Configuring Date Range Components in the Report Builder


When you add a date range component to a report, you can configure additional options.

Before You Begin


  1. On the Web Console for the Private Metrics Reporting Server, click Reports.

    The Worldwide Dashboard appears.

  2. To open a report where you have already added a data set, from the navigation pane, click Configuration > Reports, and next to the Report Name under Actions, click Edit.

  3. Optional: If your report has multiple pages, click the tab for the page that you want to edit.

  4. Drag Date Range to the Drop components to build the report box.

  5. From the Data Sets list, drag a time-based field to the Drop column here box.

  6. Select the component, and on the Properties tab, click  General.

  7. Double-click the component title and type a new name.

  8. To change the default time categories for the relative search, under Relative, specify a number and a time type.

    For example: 5y

  9. To specify who can view the component, from the Visible list, select one of the following options:

    • All: To allow everyone see the component, select this option.

    • CommCell Admin: To allow only CommCell administrators see the component, select this option.

    • Tenant Admin: To allow only only tenant administrators see the component, select this option.

    • Custom: To allow users see the component based on the permissions, select this option, then in the Visible Expression box, enter a JavaScript statement.

      For example, to allow MSP users see the component, in the Visible Expression box, enter := return cv.isMspUser.

  10. To save this version of your report specification in the Reports Manager, at the top of the Report Builder page, click Save.

  11. To make the report available to end users on the Reports page, at the top of the page, click Deploy.
