Customizable Reports

AutoFocus™ now allows you to create and edit custom Reports using enhanced widgets. You can customize default reports, such as the Threat Summary Report, or create your own. Add widgets or remove them based on your preferences, and pick the order in which they appear on the dashboard.
Dashboard settings are unique and saved for each user in a support account.
  1. Open
    to manage and create new custom reports.
    From here you can:
    • Create a new report (1). Add a report title and description and then select
      to add a new report. A new blank report opens in editing mode.
    • Search for a report by keyword (2). This search feature displays keyword matches found in titles only.
    • Manage default reports (3).
      • Run—Opens the selected report.
      • Clone—Creates and opens a duplicate of the selected report. You can edit the report from this page. If you do not provide a new name for the report, AutoFocus creates a name by appending the name on which the report is based with the word clone. For example, Custom Report 1 Clone.
      • Upgrade—When Palo Alto Networks® updates the settings for a default report, select this option to synchronize the report with the latest version. This option is displayed only when an update is available.
      • Pin—Adds the selected report to the dashboard tabs for quick reference. You can also pin (and unpin) reports from the dashboard.
    • Manage custom reports (4). Run, Clone, and pin operations function as described in Manage default reports, however you cannot upgrade a report as these reports are not managed by Palo Alto Networks. Additionally, you have the option to delete a report. Selecting this permanently deletes the report from AutoFocus.
