custom report

What are the steps in creating a report for nodes on a subnet listing URLS use one of our subnets through which specific individuals access the Internet. Their boss wants to view a report on each individual's(read node)Internet usage for the last month. Thanks!

Hey Beverly,

Thanks for getting in touch about this.

The first thing to do is to populate the 'Subnets' alias with the subnets you want to report on.
1. Go to the Aliases tab
2. Click the Subnets Alias.
3. Click Add Group and enter the Name of one of the Subnets you need to report on
4. Click Add | Subnet on the toolbar and enter a subnet in CIDR notation such as ""
5. Repeat steps 3 & 4 for each subnet you want to report on.

Now you can split your existing User Activity reports up by subnets.
1. Go to the Reports tab
2. Select the Report template you want to use
3. Click Generate Report
4. Proceed through the wizard as usual, but on the Documents page, select "Create a separate report document" for each "Source Address" aliased by "Subnets".
Note: In order to select "Source Address" as a summary, the report template you are using will need to be based on a Schema that includes Source Address such as the Palo Alto 'Threat' schema. The default 'All Web Schema' reports do not include the Source Address summary (you can duplicate these default report templates to apply it to your own schema: http://webspy.com/blogs/video-duplicating-report-templates/). Also be aware that for some schemas, this summary may be named differently, such as "Client IP" or "Source".
5. Click OK to generate a report for each subnet.

If you don't want to create a report for every subnet defined, you can simply filter your report by a specific subnet:
1. Again, select your report template and click Generate Report. Alternatively, if you want to publish the report to the Web Module, go to the Web Module tab and click "Publish Report".
2. Proceed through the wizard as usual, but on the Filters page, select Add | Field Value Filter.
3. Select Source Address as the summary (or the relevant summary that contains the Source Address in your schema), and select the Subnets Alias.
4. Check the subnet(s) you want to report on. You can also use the Search box to find the right one.
5. Click OK, and finish the wizard to generate the report.

You can also create a new Report Template (or edit an existing one) and add your Subnets to the content of your report template. You can then add sub-nodes to drilldown into each Subnet to display users and URLs etc.

I hope this helps! Let me know how you go.
