ADMonitor Reporting

Active Directory and Group Policy changes along with a current user status list are provided through the EventSentry web reports, the recommended method for ADMonitor reporting.

 

The ADMonitor reporting application supports a number of scheduled and on-demand reports that may not be available through the EventSentry web reports. The ADMonitor Reporting application provides reports such as:

 

A list of all computers, groups or organizational units

A list of users that have never logged on

A list of users that have logon or workstation hour restrictions

Active Directory and Group Policy changes along with a current user status list are provided through the EventSentry web reports, the recommended method for ADMonitor reporting.

 

Reports are divided into either Object Status or Object Change reports and can be scheduled to run at a certain time of the day. Reports are always generated in HTML format.

Reports - Object Changes

The reporting application includes a number of out of the box reports and additional reports can be created with the New button. Object Change reports cannot be run on-demand, they can only be scheduled with a Daily, Weekly or Monthly schedule.

 

Built-In reports that ship with EventSentry cannot be modified. To customize an existing report, create a new report - using a built-in report as a template - and then customize the new report instead. Reports created by users are easily distinguishable through a different report icon that includes a user symbol - see screenshot below.

Reports - Object Status

Object status reports only support pre-defined reports and can be run by selecting a report and clicking the Generate (1) button. Generated reports show up in the Generated Reports - Object Status (2) section.

Schedules

Daily

Contain AD changes from the previous calendar day.

 

Weekly

Contain AD changes from the previous calendar week (Mon - Sun).

 

Monthly

Contain AD changes from the previous calendar month (1st - 28/29/30/31th).

 

It's important to note that the time range for Weekly & Monthly schedules always applies to a calendar day/week/month and not the previous 7 or 28/29/30/31 days. A monthly report that is triggered on April 18th will always include data from the month of March.
