RicherReports 2.0 is a customized reporting solution for System Center Configuration Manager built on SQL Server Reporting Services 2016, designed for Configuration Manager with SCCM administrators in mind. This is a beautify alternative to the SSRS report server portal for viewing and accessing reports hosted on SQL Reporting Services. The navigation menu system enables accessing reports fast, easy and with a better view of what report you'll clicking on. Additionally, RicherReports aggregates all reports published to a SQL Reporting Service report server making those report easily accessible and enables readable report names.
Over the last 16 years, we found ourselves focusing on how our clients wanted to see their data in reports or dashboards and wanted reports to be meaningful and pleasant to look at especially when it comes to presenting in front of an audience. When it comes to capturing and discovering system management data and displaying that information in a meaningful beautiful way, as well making it easy to find and access the right reports, RicherReports brings the beauty and custom visualization to SCCM reports along with recommended industry used customization's and reporting solutions of the field together in one reporting solution.
We also wanted to build a portal for the SQL Server reports on a platform that's highly used and integrated with Configuration Manager. The portal had to be a simple solution that aggregates reports with a menu style making navigating and locating reports hosted by SSRS easy. At least for the SCCM Guys, we know the default SCCM reports are not that pleasing to look at, but they do provide the data and meaningful information we need. So we have taken note of the most used and useful reports, and recreated repository of customized reports that are free and customized reports packaged into a solution.
Think of it as a Consultant in a Box. You get the end results, not the time it takes a consulting to develop the solution.
SQL Report Server portal
For example, look at the screenshot of a SQL Reporting Services report server portal. The report server portal shows published reports and folders in a flat format that is liner and seems a bit difficult to search for a report due to some of the report names are truncated. Unless you access the same report often or have a saved bookmark to for a specific report, you’ll find yourself spending some time looking and searching for a desired report you might be interested in.
Our Report Server portal
Compared to the SQL Reporting Services report server options for navigating reports, as you can see to the left that the navigation menu is better, and groups reports in categories. If there is no report for a specific category, that category will not show. You can even publish your own custom reports to SQL Reporting Services report server with a specific naming convention and your report will show in the navigation menu. If you publish your custom report to any other folder, your report will show under Local Reports group.
RicherReports 2.0 consists of highly customized SQL Reporting Services reports built and designed to run on SQL Reporting Services 2016 platform for System Center Configuration Manager, improving the user experience when accessing reports published to SQL Reporting Services report server.
Local reports are any existing reports published to SQL Reporting Services that RicherReports discovers and aggregates into the navigation panel located under Local Reports for a seamless integration into the RicherReports menu.
Sub-Folder / Sub-Menus
RicherReports will also discover all reports published to the report server and group those reports based on the subfolders reports are located in, including creating a submenu structure based on reports location.
RicherReports will remember the last 20 recent reports that was access previously giving you the option to easily find and access commonly used reports.
There is an All collections default report that comes with Configuration Manager, Shown to the left… This report has three columns, [Name, Comment and Collection ID].
Now Let's Review
Let’s call out the noticeable difference between these two reports. Our report to the right shows 12 columns, [Collection ID, Collection Name, Comment, Members, Numbers of clients, Number of Virtual Machines, MDM Managed, Site Code Is Approved, Is Blocked, And Last Refresh Time].
Column names speak for them self. But as you can see you get allot more helpful information at first glance across all selected collections when using Devices Collections and Members report. This type of report provides the opportunity to compare collections and members.
Even More Details
The Devices Collections and Members report goes even further, it also provides the option to click the + plus sign and drill into the members of each collection from the view of the same report.
After drilling into the report, you'll also have the option to click on a computers name and get more information about that particular device. The Devices Collections and Members report will also show the virtual host if the devices happens to be a virtual machine.
