Use reports in Splunk Light
When you create a search or a pivot that you would like to run again or share with others, you can save it as a report. This means that you can create reports from both the Search and the Pivot sides of the Splunk platform.
Once you create a report you can:
- View the results that the report returns on the report viewing page. You can get to the viewing page for a report by clicking the name of the report on the Reports listing page.
- Open the report and edit it so that it returns different data or displays its data in a different manner. Your report opens in either Pivot or Search, depending on how it was created.
In addition, if your permissions enable you to do so, you can:
- Change the report permissions to share it with other Splunk users. See Set report permissions in the Splunk Enterprise Reporting Manual.
- Schedule the report so that it runs on a regular interval. Scheduled reports can perform actions each time they run, such as sending report results via email to a set of stakeholders. See Schedule reports in the Splunk Enterprise Reporting Manual.
- Accelerate slow-completing reports built in Search. See Accelerate reports in the Splunk Enterprise Reporting Manual.
- Embed scheduled reports in external websites. See Embed scheduled reports in external websites in the Splunk Enterprise Reporting Manual.
- Add the report to a dashboard as a dashboard panel. See Add a search, report, or pivot to a dashboard in the Splunk Enterprise Dashboards and Visualizations manual.
- Generate PDF reports. See Understand how to generate PDFs of reports, dashboards, searches, and pivots the Splunk Enterprise Reporting Manual.
Note: Permissions for reports built using Pivot must match those of the data model that was used to construct them. See Permissions for Pivot-based reports in the Splunk Enterprise Reporting Manual.
For more information about reports, see the Splunk Enterprise Reporting Manual.
