Based on the daily collected configuration data DocCloud provides change reports for servers or services in Excel format, enabling the user to use the power of excel to analyse the data to better track and understand changes.

The reports provide a day by day configuration change tracking for a 7-day rolling window, including

  • Change date
  • Change type
  • Previous Value
  • New Value

Due to the depth of the collected data, the data is filtered to the needs of a specific report. The user is provided the option of selecting a report template and a group of servers or services to be included in a report. The same template can be used to generate multiple reports if needed, as well as multiple reports can be generated for the same servers or services.

Once the desired report definitions have been added, they will automatically be generated every night, giving the user the ability to always login and download updated change reports.
