Install Canned Reports for Analytics Center

To install the canned reports for Analytics Center, do the procedure in this topic.

Prerequisites

Good to Know

  • When the Analytics Center installation completes, it must synchronize data with the AgilePoint NX databases. This synchronization can take up to one hour. The Analytics Center Starter Pack cannot be installed until this synchronization is complete. It is recommended to wait at least one hour after installing Analytics Center before installing the Starter Pack.
  • This installs sample reports (canned reports) for Analytics Center.
  • Installing the Analytics Center Starter Pack is optional.
  • Some of the reports in the Analytics Center Starter Pack require an app to be associated with a category. If you want to use these reports, it is recommended to associate all apps with a category.

    For more information, refer to Change App Details.

  • After you install the Analytics Center Starter Pack, if you see errors in the logs, refer to Troubleshooting Analytics Center Installation.

    Click Overwrite Existing Templates
    Field Name Definition

    Overwrite Existing Templates

    Function:
    Specifies whether to replace all reports in the target location that have the same name as the canned reports you install.

    Some AgilePoint NX software releases may have updated versions of canned reports that were included in earlier releases. For example, in AgilePoint NX v8.0 Software Update 1, the look and feel of the canned reports that were released with AgilePoint NX v8.0 was updated. If this option is selected, when you install AgilePoint NX v8.0 Software Update 1, the canned reports from v8.0 are replaced with the updated versions of the reports. If it is deselected, only the new reports from v8.0 Software Update 1 are installed.

    Changes to previously released canned reports can differ from one release to the next. Check the Release Notes for your release for information about whether previously release canned reports have changed.

    It is also possible, but unlikely, that reports created by Analytics Center users may exist in your AgilePoint NX environment that have the same names as the canned reports.

    If you want to make sure that you do not overwrite reports that exist in your environment, and you also want all of the latest canned reports, do this procedure:

    1. In Analytics Center, create clones of all previously released canned reports.
    2. Save the reports with new names.
    3. Select Overwrite Existing Templates.
    4. Install the new canned reports.
    Accepted Values:
    • Selected - Replaces all reports that have the same name as the canned reports with the canned reports you install.

      Refer to the Description for this field for more information.

    • Deselected - Installs only canned reports that have names that are different from reports that exist in the target installation folder.

      If canned reports are not installed because they exist with the same name, a message shows in the installation log.

    Default Value:
    Deselected
