Interactive Reporting - Getting Started
The Interactive Reporting service provides a framework for organizing and presenting data in a range of formats, including detailed, summary, and historical data. It also provides an online repository of queries (the Workspace) to allow sharing of queries with access control. This Getting Started guide will assist a new user in obtaining access, choosing and installing a client, and logging into the Workspace.
Obtaining Access / License
Before you can use the Interactive Reporting service, you must request access. This request will get you added to our list of people who have a license to use the software. This can be done by following the instructions here: Interactive Reporting - Obtaining a License.
Choosing a Client
The Interactive Reporting service offers three clients to process and write queries. Your specific needs will reflect which client to use. Please refer to our client overviewguide to select the client right for you: Interactive Reporting - Overview of Clients
