Adding a Report to a Job

A report defines the information that you want the scan to return. For example, you can create a report that lists files over a given size or files that have not been accessed in the last n days. For a list of reports that you can request, see the FsrmReportType enumeration. A report job can contain only one report of each type.

You can specify a filter value for most of the report types which lets you limit the information provided in the report. To specify a filter value for a report type that is applied to all reports of that type, call the IFsrmReportManager::SetDefaultFilter method. To override the global filter value, you can call the IFsrmReport::SetFilter method.

The following example shows how to create and configure a report for a report job. The AddReportToJob function is defined in the Defining a Report Job example.


// Create and configures a report that lists files that 
// have not been accessed in the last five days.
HRESULT AddReportToJob(IFsrmReportJob* pJob)
{
    HRESULT hr = S_OK;
    IFsrmReport* pReport = NULL;

    // Add a report that lists the least recently accessed files.
    hr = pJob->CreateReport(FsrmReportType_LeastRecentlyAccessed, &pReport);
    if (FAILED(hr))
    {
        wprintf(L"pJob->CreateReport failed, 0x%x.\n", hr);
        goto cleanup;
    }

    // The name and description are included in the report. The name
    // is used as the subject if the report is being mailed.
    hr = pReport->put_Name(_bstr_t(L"Least Accessed"));
    if (FAILED(hr))
    {
        wprintf(L"pReport->put_Name failed, 0x%x.\n", hr);
        goto cleanup;
    }

    hr = pReport->put_Description(_bstr_t(L"This report list the files "
        L"that have not been accessed within the last five days."));
    if (FAILED(hr))
    {
        wprintf(L"pReport->put_Description failed, 0x%x.\n", hr);
        goto cleanup;
    }

    // Use the filter on the report object to specify the least accessed report.
    hr = pReport->SetFilter(FsrmReportFilter_MinAgeDays, _variant_t(5));
    if (FAILED(hr))
    {
        wprintf(L"pReport->SetFilter failed, 0x%x.\n", hr);
        goto cleanup;
    }

    // Save the report job.
    hr = pJob->Commit();
    if (FAILED(hr))
    {
        wprintf(L"pJob->Commit failed, 0x%x.\n", hr);
        goto cleanup;
    }

cleanup:

    if (pReport)
        pReport->Release();

    return hr;
}
