File Actions

File actions enable you to save executable metadata and content (e.g. Report content and triggered log entries) to CSV, HTML, PDF and UTF-8 text files.

To create a File Action

  • From the Menu Bar select File | New. The Create New Object View displays.
  • Select Alerts and Actions. The New Action view displays.
  • Use the Name text box to specify a unique name.
  • From the Type drop-down select Save to File.
  • Use the Filename text box to specify the filename to generate or click the Browse button to select the target file.
    Use the Variable button to specify variables you would like to include in the filename (e.g. {HOST}).

    The following file extensions are supported:
    .csvGenerates a CSV file.
    .html and .htmGenerates an HTML file using either the default or the assigned HTML template.
    .pdfGenerates a temporary HTML file then converts the HTML file to a PDF file.
    .txtGenerates a UTF-8 text file.
  • Select from one of the three options:
    OverwriteOverwrites the previous file.
    BackupBacks-up the previous file to a sub-directory called backup then renames the file being backed-up to [FILENAME]_[yyyyMMddHHmmss].[EXTENTION] where [yyyyMMddHHmmss] is the current date and time.
    AppendWhen saving to either CSV or TXT formats, opens the exiting file then appends metadata and executable content such as report content and triggered log entries.
  • Use the Override the default HTML template option to specify your own HTML template. If selected, use the Data table template control to select the .html file to use in-place of the default file:
    C:\Program Files\Corner Bowl\Server Manager 2022\HtmlTemplates\data-template.html
    When selecting the file, the Select File dialog returns the file system content relative to the server the service is running rather than relative to the file system the Management Console is running.
