How to include a report view in the SCOM console

Probably this has been blogged elsewhere, but since I didn’t find any reference, here we go. Yesterday I’ve been asked to include in our OpsMgr Console a report in the Monitoring space.


This is easy to do using the “web page view” and SQL reporting services web service. Just create a “web page view” and use a link like this:

The URI is composed by the following tokens:

– webservice url “”

– report path and name “/RSM/RSM+-+Agents+with+issues”

– webservice commands “&rs:Command=Render&rs:Format=HTML4.0&rc:Toolbar=false”

– report parameters “&Threshold=10”

    I was talking to the other Daniele. Or are you working undercover? :-) I did see that blog by Kevin a while back. Didn’t recall until you pointed at it. A nice little trick when including parameters.

    Daniele, this is really cool. I’ve used web views for internal sites and console usability and process documentation, etc. Haven’t ever thought about deploying reports with predefined parameters. How do you see your customers using this for reports views with predefined params? I’m trying to find the usability. Maybe something like “top alerts for exchange from last week”, or something similar? Even still, this can be accomplished using report schedules and published reports. In this case, it’s just exposing another option for something that’s just as easily done elsewhere. I think it’s a great trick. Can you share some ideas for usability?
