This document covers how to create a folder for holding reports that can be used in the Reports and Design sections of UMP.


UMP 7.x and later


There are three different folder permissions in UMP:  private, public, and account.  All of these are by design in the product.  This should also not be confused with UMP user permissions.  A folder can be created in any one of these permissions, which will be shown in the following Reports and Design sections.

  • Reports/Performance Reports
  • Reports/List Reports
  • Design/Performance Reports Designer

Follow These Steps for Creating the Folder

The following can be used to create a folder and save a report to it in Reports/Performance Reports:

  •   In the lower right corner click the save as button to bring up the save dialog screen.

Additional Information:

** NOTE:    The folder created above can only be viewed in the Design/List Designer under the 'permission type' that the folder was created under.  For example, a folder created with an 'account permission' of CA Technologies as the owner can only be viewed by a person logging in with the CA Technologies account permissions.  When the customer "account" logs into the Design/List Designer, they will only be able to view the folders that are relevant to their account with limited permissions; therefore, if you need to view these reports in this tab, you will need to log in with the customer's credentials related to that account.
