Automated Report Delivery - FNMS Reports Index
Hi - I was wondering if anyone had experience with automated delivery of reporting out of FlexNet Management Suite? We do have a Cognos connection but unfortunately I am completely lost in trying to build reports in Cognos.
Ultimately I'd like to just find a way to schedule an automated delivery of a .csv of a report i generated out of "reports index".
We are on FNMS 22.214.171.12420 .
If you are comfortable with scripting (using PowerShell or something of that nature), then an approach to doing this that doesn't involve Cognos is:
- Extract data from the FlexNet database - this could be done using a web API to run a pre-configured report (like is described here), or by a direct SQL query to the database.
- Write a script to deliver the extracted data using whatever mechanism you prefer (e.g. save it to a file on a file share, email it, ...)
