Issue/Introduction

There are times when it becomes necessary to export the contents of a filter or organizational group to a readable file or list. However there is no option to do this from within a filter or organizational group page.

Resolution

Import and modify the attached custom reports to display the contents of the desired Filter or Organizational Group. Once the custom report shows the proper results use the Save As>Spreadsheet option to save the contents of the Filter or Group as a CSV file.

Filter: Download and extract the attached Show Resources in a Filter report. Go to the Reports page, right-click on a folder to import the report to, and select Import. Select the Show Resources in a Filter XML file to be imported. Once the report is open, click on Resource Filter: All Computers, and change the selected filter to the desired filter.

Group: Download the attached List Computers in Organizational Group report. Go to the Reports page, right-click on a folder to import the report to, and select Import. Select the List Computers in Organizational Group XML file to be imported. Once the report is open click the Edit button to open the Data Source>Parameterised Query tab, then replace "New Organizational Group" with the name of the desired group and click Save Changes.

Note: The attached reports are not supported by Symantec. They will need to be modified by the user to show different information.
