Ensuring that current data is reported

Whenever a report is generated in BigFix® Remote Control Server a query is run against the database to retrieve the required data and display it on the screen. This data is held in a temporary location for the next time the same report is run so that the data is displayed more quickly on the screen. To ensure that the latest data is reported to the screen, including any updates that have taken place since the last time the report data was displayed, click Refresh at the right of the screen. The report data is updated with the changes or updates and displayed on the screen.

For example, if you create a new user and do not see the user’s details in the All Users report, click Refresh to update the report with the new entry.
