Creating Reports by Service *2.0 Beta*

Purpose

From the 2.0 release it is now possible to create custom reports that can be configured to report on data on a per-service or per-service type basis. This can be used to report on what files/data are stored on a particular service or service type, which can then be used for budgeting and cost optimization analysis, or identification of ROT data.

Searching for files by various configured services is easy using the Reports Query feature. This enables the narrowing down of file results to only display the folders and files that exist on the specified service. The reports created can also be altered using filters, adding fields and saved for future use.

Creating a Custom Service Report

1. Click on the Reports tab, in the top navigation menu.
