The Analytics Action Pack provided in the marketplace cuts off the list of executions. The document or image printed looks more like a screenshot than a list of executions.

Steps to reproduce:

  • Create Dashboard.
  • Add Widget -> Analytics -> Tablet Chart
  • Share Dashboard
  • Overwrite agent and log-in prompt. Select created dashboard.
  • Check Automic\Automation.Platform\Agents\windows\Resources\0100\analytics
  • The image is a screenshot of the dashboard.
  • Runs are not shown because you have to scroll down not on the capture.


Release : 12.3

Component : ACTIONS PACK


The main idea behind this action pack is that it sends screenshots from dashboards that contain charts, and not real PDF exports or images. That's why it doesn't provide useful results for the table.

These are some other ways how to get similar information: One way is to generate the same export through Process Monitor, then export as xls file.

Another possibility is to use the GET executions from the REST API and get a JSON export, for further automatic processing.

While there is no pre-built query, the REST API documentation is a great resource.,../Continuous.Delivery.Automation/swagger.json,../Analytics/swagger.json,../Infrastructure.Manager/swagger.json
