Installation

Requirements

Database Setup

The module needs a MySQL/MariaDB database with the schema that’s provided in the etc/schema/mysql.sql file.

Example command for creating the MySQL/MariaDB database. Please change the password:

CREATE DATABASE reporting;
GRANT SELECT, INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE, DROP, CREATE VIEW, INDEX, EXECUTE ON reporting.* TO reporting@localhost IDENTIFIED BY 'secret';

After, you can import the schema using the following command:

mysql -p -u root reporting < schema/mysql.sql

Module Installation

  1. Just drop this module to a reporting subfolder in your Icinga Web 2 module path.

  2. Log in with a privileged user in Icinga Web 2 and enable the module in Configuration -> Modules -> reporting. Or use the icingacli and run icingacli module enable reporting.

  3. Once you’ve set up the database, create a new Icinga Web 2 resource for it using the Configuration -> Application -> Resources menu. Make sure that you set the character set to utf8mb4.

  4. The next step involves telling the Reporting module which database resource to use. This can be done in Configuration -> Modules -> reporting -> Backend.

This concludes the installation. You should now be able create reports.

Scheduler Daemon

There is a daemon for generating and distributing reports on a schedule if configured:

icingacli reporting schedule run

This command schedules the execution of all applicable reports.

You may configure this command as systemd service. Just copy the example service definition from config/systemd/icinga-reporting.service to /etc/systemd/system/icinga-reporting.service and enable it afterwards:

systemctl enable icinga-reporting.service
