  • Using the Reporter Tool (Legacy)

    Selecting the source data

    The “Scheduled Export” feature enables ControlUp to export all the data tables to disk in comma-delimited format, according to the configured schedule. The resulting reports are comma-delimited files with the following naming convention:

    cuExport_<table_name>_<Date> _<Time>.csv

    (where <table_name> is one of the following: Computers, Sessions, Processes, Folders, Executables or Accounts, and <Date>_<Time> represents the timestamp of the export)

    In order to produce reports, you should point ControlUp Reporter to a directory containing these log files. To do so, click on the “Select Source Data Directory” button.
