Report Builder

Report Builder allow you to create and manage queries and detailed query-based reports in GravityZone.

Report Builder consists of two roles, Database and Processors, that come with the GravityZone Virtual Appliance and must be installed separately from each other and from other GravityZone roles. After installing Report Builder, your GravityZone environment should run at least three instances of the GravityZone Virtual Appliance, as follows:

  • One or more instances of GravityZone Appliance Virtual Appliance having all the roles installed, except for Report Builder Database and Report Builder Processors.

  • One instance of GravityZone Virtual Appliance having the Report Builder Database role installed.

  • One instance of GravityZone Virtual Appliance having the Report Builder Processors role installed.

For a smooth installation, first make sure your virtual environment meets the hardware and software requirements. Then, you must have at hand:

  • GravityZone Virtual Appliance image, which you will use to install the Report Builder Database and Report Builder Processors roles.

  • DNS name or IP address of the GravityZone Virtual Appliance that has the GravityZone Database role installed.

  • Username and password of a domain administrator.

  • Password for the GravityZone database. If you forget it, you can create another one in the console interface of the GravityZone appliance.

The Report Builder installation implies two stages:

As best practice, first install GravityZone and set up Control Center (if needed), then update GravityZone, deploy protection on endpoints, and in the end install the Report Builder roles.
