Summarizing issues in report packs

A report pack is a bundle of reports that summarizes the issues discovered within its reports and provides a window into those reports. The reports themselves contain the details of the issues found on your website or application.

About this task

Typically, a report pack will describe the issues in a given section of your site (by scoping its data with filters). Every report pack has properties that define its reports and its attributes, such as who has access to it and who does not.


  1. Create the report pack and select the source jobs or folders that will contribute data to it.
  2. Add reports.
  3. Scope the data so the report pack only contains the information you need. Report packs are used to create dashboards, so when you are creating the report pack, think about how you want the information to be displayed as a summary to those who will only review dashboard data. The dashboard will summarize the total number of issues and the issue status, by type.
  4. Schedule the report pack so it can update itself on a regular basis with new data when the data becomes available. Alternatively, you can run the report pack manually. In either case, you must run the report pack when you create it and on a periodic basis to update its data. You will likely update the report pack as often as the jobs that contribute to it are run.
  5. If you experience problems with the report pack while it is running, check the report pack log file.
  6. Determine who should have access to the report pack data and who should not.
