Reports are created when you save a search or a pivot for later reuse. After a report is created, there's a lot you can do with it. In this manual, you'll find out how to:
- Manually create and edit reports. Add reports to the Report listing page from either Search or Pivot. In Splunk Enterprise, configure a report manually in
savedsearches.conf. Convert a dashboard panel to a report. Share your report with others by changing its permissions.
- Accelerate slow-completing reports, either during the report creation process, or at a later point.
- Set up scheduled reports--reports that run on a regular interval and which trigger an alert action (such as the sending of an email with search results) each time they run. Scheduled reports are also used for summary indexing.
- Configure the priority of scheduled reports. Learn how the Report Scheduler manages multiple concurrent reports and learn how to configure your Report Scheduler options.
- Understand how to generate PDFs of reports, dashboards, searches, and pivots. Enable non-Latin fonts in PDFs. In Splunk Enterprise, configure PDF generation by editing .conf files. Review the exceptions to this functionality.
