Issue/Introduction

In Workstation, under SuperDomain : Management Modules : <module name> : Report Templates, the users have the option to create and run reports. For admin users the buttons "Open Template Editor" and "Generate Report" are available.

However, for non-admin users, those buttons are grayed out so it may not be clear how a report can be generated from those templates.

Environment

Release : Any

Component : APM Workstation

Option: Report Templates


Cause

Report templates can only be created by admins, i.e. users for whom admin access have been granted in domains.xml.

Resolution

In order to Edit or Create a report template admin privileges are required. That is the reason why the Open Template Editor and Generate Report buttons are disabled for the non-admin users.

In order to run a report with a user with only read access these options can be used:

1- Right click on the report template name in the tree SuperDomain : Management Modules : <module name> : Report Templates and select "Generate Report".

2- Select the option "Generate Report" directly from the Workstation menu (Alt+W). I
 In this case the report template to be used must be selected from a list.
