Creating custom reports

Suggest edit Updated on October 7, 2021

Create a custom report if the standard out-of-the-box reports do not meet your business needs. Custom reports provide a visual representation of the financial, business, and operational impact of your robotic workforce that is specifically tailored to your requirements.

For example, you can create a weekly health report on the state of your unattended robots. Such a report can provide you with accurate and up-to-date information on any issues that your robotic workforce might be experiencing.
Before you begin: Ensure that your user account has at least one of the following access roles:
  • Admin
  • ReportAdmin
  • ReportWriter
For more information, see Access groups and roles in Pega Robot Manager.
In your reports, you can use data from applications that include Pega Robot Manager in their application stack.

  2. In the top-right corner of the screen, click New report.

  6. In the Report type list, select how to present the data, for example, in a chart.
