To support operating staff with their daily business, reports about specific informations would be helpful.
Example Use Cases:
show a list with all routers, switches and firewalls where support contracts will expire in the next 3 months
show a list with all routers, that have no maintenance contract
show a list with all servers, that are older than 4 years
show a list with all routers where customer_number == 0815 and purchase_date > 4 years
show a list with all servers where os == “Ubuntu” and version < 18.04
show all possible values of a specific field of a specific object type with count in a diagram (bar or pie chart)
A report should be created by Admin staff for all users or ad-hoc by a specific user
A report should have one of the following views:
list view with predefined query
calendar view with predefined query?
frequency distribution of object field values (see also NET-300)
reports about multiple object types
It should be possible to create a report about multiple object types. E.g. the expiration of maintenance contracts in servers, routers and switches. For that reason, we need to map different fields of multiple types to a logical field (e.g. router.support_end, switch.maint_end)
