Werk #5567: Scheduled reports can now be stored in the site

Component Reporting & availability
Title Scheduled reports can now be stored in the site
Date Dec 7, 2017
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Enterprise (CEE)
Checkmk Version 1.5.0i2
Level Prominent Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

Instead of sending an email with the created report in the scheduled interval it is now possible to store the just created reports locally in the site.

This feature is configured in the configuration of the schedule. You can now choose the action Store locally instead of Send via Email and configure different action specific things after this.

Each user allowed to use the report scheduler can open the page "Scheduler > Stored reports" to view and open all stored reports available to the user.

All reports are stored below ~/var/check_mk/reports/archive/.

In the first directory below the base directory each user that creates such stored reports gets a directory. All stored reports of this user are saved below this directory. In case the user configures a schedule to publish the resulting PDFs to other users, the reports are stored in the public sub directory. A schedule can be configured to store the report either directly in these directories or in a hierarchy of subdirectories below these parent directories.

You can configure stored reports to be deleted after a given time.
