How to: Identify report type from configuration files


Reports configured in Storage Reporter are stored under the Database\Storage Reporter\Reports folder, in the installation path. Each configured report has its own folder in this structure. It is possible to identify the report type by looking in the xml configuration files; using the class id property found in the Report Definition Action.xml file.



To identify what type a configured report is by looking at the XML configuration files, follow these steps:

  1. Browse to the report folder in Windows explorer (by default C:\Program Files\NORTHERN\Storage Suite\Database\Storage Reporter\Reports\[report name]\)
  2. Open Report Definition Action.xml file in a text editor
  3. Find the <ClassID> tag and compare the id with the list below to identify the report type
