 Warning: Objects need to be tested in a test environment before put to use in a production environment!

                We strongly recommend to include the testing of these objects in your upgrade test procedures.

                The runid data collector uses the Utility tools to export Reports and Logfiles directly from the Database.

                See documentation page "Start Parameters - Utilities"  under Archive Utility and "Xunload" function and run tests from the command line"

                (Unix) In some cases you might need to adjust upper and lowercase commands in the script of the object if files are not found.

 Automic tool to export reports (activation, job, agent and server) and Objects as xml of a certain runid::

Attached you will find an object (as xml export) created in Automic Version 9  for an easier automated report capture and xml export.  

This tool will export activation, job, agent and server reports, and xml-export  of a certain runid to a location of your choice.

Environment needs for objects to work:

.) Unix Agent located on/or access to  a Host where Automic - utilites are installed on

.) It is only possible to export information out of the same client and the client needs to contain a User Object with the same name used for the archive utility connection string.
