SUSE Manager/Own Spacewalk Reports
Creating own Reports for spacewalk-report
WARNING: creating ad-hoc SQL based reports:
- is totally not supported
- needs an understanding of the database schema, which is not explicitly documented
- might break anytime, as the schema will change and we do not document these changes
The recommended way to extract custom information from SUSE Manager is through the XMLRPC API, which is guaranteed to be stable, supported and documented. Proceed at your own risk.
The report definition files are placed in /usr/share/spacewalk/reports/data/.
