Using Cross-Product Reports

Using Cross-Product Reports

The Cross-Product Report provides insight into how many unique machines have installed products for a given date range that are part of product groups that you create. Up to three groups of products can be utilized in the creation of the report.

NOTE: The date range that you can select is restricted. The oldest date that you can select is limited to the product in any group that has the shortest Date Retention history quota.

NOTE: Products included in Product Groups must be using the SDK version 5.0 or greater. Products using an earlier version of the SDK will report zero values as unique machine information was not available in SDKs prior to SDK 5.0.

Product groups typically contain products that vary based on version, but there are no restrictions on what products can be added to a group. For example, you might create a product group called Movie Edit that contains the products Movie Edit 2018, Movie Edit 2019, and Movie Edit 2020. This will be used by the report to cover machines that would contain Movie Edit 2018 or Movie Edit 2019 or Movie Edit 2020, or any two or three combinations of those products.  You could also create a group named 2020 Versions and have Movie Edit 2020 and Picture Edit 2020 in that group. This would be used by the report to cover machines that would contain Movie Edit 2020 OR Picture Edit 2020 or both products.

Examples

A single group report can be used to get a quick count. In the following example, the group Picture Edit 2020 contains a single product (Picture Edit 2020), and the count represents the total number of machines with Picture Edit 2020 installed during the selected date range.

If you define two groups, then the report is based on the AND relationship between the two groups. In the example below, two groups have been defined: Picture Edit 2020 and Movie Edit 2020. Each of those contains a single product: Picture Edit 2020 and Movie Edit 2020, respectively. The report shows counts of machines with each individual product as well as a count of machines that have both products installed during the selected date range:

The maximum number of groups that can be defined is three groups. As with the two-group example, the report is based on AND relationships between the three groups. In the example below, we have the two groups defined previously and a new group called Older Versions. This group contains four products: Picture Edit 2019, Picture Edit 2018, Movie Edit 2019, and Movie Edit 2018.  The resulting visualization shows machines installed with the individual groups as well as AND relationships showing counts of machines with the Older Versions and each 2020 product group. The center overlap shows the number of machines with all three groups installed during the selected date range.

If you hover your mouse over any of the circles or intersections, a tooltip is displayed describing what that intersection represents:
