Scheduling a dashboard

A schedule dashboard wizard generates a dashboard by creating a dashboard update job. A dashboard views the current data in the Reporting database that is based on the criteria. The dashboards are generated only on the evaluated assets and standards.

You start the schedule dashboard wizard in the Dashboard Templates view. The wizard walks you through each step necessary for the creation of the dashboard. When the wizard is finished, you remain in the Dashboard Templates view. You can view the dashboard in the My Dashboards view after the job has completed. You can monitor the job status in the Monitor > Jobs view.

You should run the Scheduled Reporting Database Synchronization job before you create the job. The job populates the database with the last successful synchronization of the data in the production database. The Scheduled Reporting Database Synchronization job is an existing job. If you create the dashboard before the Scheduled Reporting Database Synchronization job completes its run, you may see a blank dashboard.

The dashboard run date is displayed in the Application Server date format. The Failure Trend dashboard has a date range that is displayed in the English (US) long date format.

If you have changed the locale or the time zone on the Application Server, you must restart the Application Server. After you have restarted the service, you should launch the Control Compliance Suite. You should run the Scheduled Reporting Database Synchronization job and then run your dashboard jobs.

You may not see each step in the procedure. The type of dashboard determines which steps are needed.
