Device Inventory Reports

From this report it is possible to generate inventories of devices monitored in WOCU-Monitoring on a multitude of technical aspects, in a in a quick and easy way.

The Hosts are registered in an inventory created by WOCU-Monitoring, where each of them is enriched with technical data. A Device Inventory reports are extracted from this list. In short, this type of report compiles a set of devices whose inventory data match with the filters applied at the time of launching the report.

The process of creating and executing reports is detailed below, establishing a series of filters and parameters configured by the user.

Configuration and generation of Device Inventory Reports

In general, when creating reports, the user must access the blue button New Report, located in the Reports.


Before generating the report, it will be necessary to set a number of filters and parameters as described below.

Scheduling Reports

WOCU-Monitoring also allows the automation of the reports, thanks to the possibility of scheduling their generation and launch at the user’s discretion by means of the New Scheduling. For more information, see: Scheduling.


In this drop-down field, the user must select the type of In this case, it will be Device Inventory.



Depending on the type of report selected, new fields to be defined will be automatically included.


In this optional field the user selects the template to be applied to the Report. Templates are created prior to reports. This element is further developed in section Templates.


Mandatory field in which the user assigns an identification term that differentiates the report from the rest.


Optional field where the user may include descriptive text relating to the report.


In this field the user determines whether the report will be visible to the rest of the users, i.e. a public report, or whether it will be private and only visible to the creator of the report.

Retrieve hosts without inventory?

Selecting this checkbox will retrieve in the report the Hosts that have not been enriched with data in the inventory.


Retrieve full inventory

Selecting this checkbox will retrieve the complete inventories of the Hosts (if any), which comply with the filters applied in the report generation. Unchecking it will retrieve only those data indicated through the filters.



The sections are different pre-established inventory categories, which include hosts according to a set of technical characteristics collected in the inventories. Depending on the section chosen, WOCU will launch a report where a list of hosts assigned to that section will be retrieved.


It is possible to both broaden and refine this field from various options.

These are:

Refine by adding Keys to the section

WOCU-Monitoring allows to further narrow down the configuration of the report by assigning Keys. Keys are the inventory of a monitored host.

For this field to be displayed, click on the button with the button with a downward pointing arrow (↓ Add Key), located on the right of the section bar. To remove it, just click on the red button with the bin icon and the field will disappear.


It is also possible to narrow down a Key. By pressing the blue button with the icon with an arrow pointing to the right (), another field called Value, which allows you to define a value for the key previously selected. To remove it, simply press the X button and the field will disappear.

Expand the report by adding another section.

There is the possibility to add several sections in a single report. On the right of the Sections bar there is a button + Add Section button, clicking it will bring up a new row to select a new section. In case you want to delete one of them, just click on the button with the bin icon and the field will disappear.



The corresponding Sections, Keys and Values are created and configured in WOCU by the Administrator.

Host Group

This configuration parameter allows filtering the data collected and reflected in the report, showing only those related to the Host Groups existing in WOCU.


To select and filter the results of the report by a specific Host Group, simply choose the name of the group from the Host Group drop-down menu. All the groups registered within the realm will be displayed.

To deactivate the filter, the user must choose the No HG filter option, which appears first in the list.

In the case of a Multirealm, the list will show the Host Groups defined in the different realms that make up the set. To indicate to the user that a given Host Group belongs to one of the realms that make up the Multirealm, the name of the realm to which the Host Group belongs is enclosed in square brackets (“[Realm]”).


Running and scheduling Device Inventory Reports

To save the configuration and generate the report, click on the blue blue Create.


Once the report has been created and programmed, you will go back to the initial screen of this section, where the reports will be stacked sequentially in the reports in the Reports. Within the panel is the user can access the generated report by clicking on the name of the report.


The user is then directed to a new window dedicated to the report where information generated and collected by the system. These panels are described in detail in the following section.

Scheduling Reports

WOCU-Monitoring also allows the automation of the reports, thanks to the possibility of programming their generation and Scheduling option

Exporting Device Inventory Reports

WOCU-Monitoring also allows the export of the report in PDF, CSV and JSON formats. These condense all information on the availability of the monitored assets in a document that can be easily dissemination and simple analysis.


Through the Export selector located in the global report panel, the corresponding files shall be downloaded”

Analysis and Options for Device Inventory Reports

The information generated by WOCU for this type of Report is presented to the user through a configuration panel and an inventory panel.


Report Configuration Panel

This configuration panel presents the filters and parameters set in the configuration of the generated report.


These are:

ID: Report identifier code.

Name: Identification name assigned to the report.

Description: Descriptive text relating to the report.

Comments: Displays the comments added by the user when creating the report.

Create at: Indicates the date and time the report was created.

Create by: Indicates the user who created/owns the report.

Realm: Indicates the name of the Realm which is the subject of the report.

Retrieve hosts without inventory: Indicates whether this option has been checked in the report configuration.

Retrieve full inventory: Indicates whether this option has been checked in the report configuration.

Filters: Reports the filters applied to the report. Displays the sections, keys and values, if they have been applied. The structure that follows is as follows:

  • Section

    • Key

      • Value


Device Inventory Report Inventory Dashboard

This inventory panel lists a set of Hosts, whose data match the filters applied at the time of launching the report.

There are two display options for this inventory panel:

Compact view

This view condenses the information about the devices that make up the inventory. The following data is provided in a tabular format:



This field lists the devices that make up the inventory, including the name of each one of them, followed by the realm to which it belongs in square brackets. Clicking on the name (in blue) will display the Detailed view of Assets: Hosts and Business Processes.

IP Address

Indicates the IP address of the device.


This field shows the data collected in the inventory for a given Host. Clicking on it will display a new view. To hide it, simply click on the blue icon with a minus sign (“-“), located in the upper right corner of the panel.

These new additional data can be displayed in different formats:

  • Table: displays in a table all the Keys of a Section of a given host.

  • JSON: displays in JSON format all the keys of a section, from a given host.


Columns view

This column view shows the data in a more detailed way, as it also allows filtering by keys and IP (Address), in contrast to the compact view which offers a more more general view of the data.


The data filtering options are:

  • Show host address: by default this box is checked, but can be changed by the user to remove the host IP address column, leaving more space for reading data.

  • Show strict matching hosts: by ticking this box, only the devices that have all the requested data, i.e. that match the selected inventory keys, will be displayed.

    For example, after applying the filter in the following image, only will be retrieved only those devices whose inventory has data the key Operator otherwise the device will not be retrieved by the system
