Zenworks Application Reporting

Zenworks Application Reporting

Zenworks Application Reporting

We are runnning NW6 with Zen 4 and I'm trying to produce a report that lists users, the application objects that associated to them and the last time the user actually used each application.  I have setup the Zenworks ODBC but can not find any tables that give the info I need.

RE: Zenworks Application Reporting

On the ODBC thing, Zen uses the CIM specification for the database. Good side being - it's a standard. Bad side being - it's a standard whose tables were linked by a chimp on acid.
You can run crystal against it, but it will take a while to sus out what bits are where. Keys to not tie tables (ie: ID# in  table A is not ID# in table B.. it might link to machine type..) I use Crystal to browse the tables until I figure out what links and go from there. It eats time but you can get great custom reports. Zen 7 (if you have upgrade protection!) will be standardized on Crystal reports btw.
Here is an old appnote that will get you going wtih the basics. The tables and linking info are in the Zen docs.
