Using Reporting Templates

Graphs and reporting elements in the default reporting view provide insight into many aspects of the risk and vulnerability data that Cisco Vulnerability Management processes. However, some graphs might be useful or informative only to select groups in your organization, or select metrics might be more appropriate for the report you’re looking to prepare. By using Report Templates, you can define and save a select group of metrics into one saved template to allow you to easily pull reports for each of the various audiences you might send reports to.

Note: Report templates are unique on the user basis, so if User A creates a Report Template (Template 1), it will only appear to User A. User B will not be able to see Template 1 by default. If User B needs the same template, User A will need to share what graphs/metrics they selected with User B so that User B can create a mirror template under their own user profile.

Create a Template:

1. In Cisco Vulnerability Management, click VM > Dashboard.
2. Click the Reporting button for the Risk Meter that you want to create a template for.
3. Click the Report Template: All Charts drop-down list.
