Icinga Reporting – For Icinga-Web & Classic UI Users

In version 1.5, we released an Icinga Reporting Cronk pre-installed in the Icinga-Web interface. Though Icinga-Web users maybe happy, perhaps Icinga Classic users might appreciate the ability to generate flash looking reports too. Good news is, Icinga Reporting can also be used as an add-on to the JasperReports interface to edit, generate and send reports using data from the Icinga Core.
Integrating Icinga Reporting is simple, all you require is:
– a JasperReports server,
Icinga Core with a configured MySQL database and IDOUtils enabled
Icinga Reporting package
and the rest is very simple, as ernestoongaro shows in his Youtube webcast:

Also, for those who would like to edit the existing report templates or create their own, ernestoongaro gives a quick introduction to Jasper’s iReport WYSIWG editor:
