A prompt is a report property that can be configured when a report is created or modified. When running a report with a configured prompt, you must enter a value for the required parameter before the data can be retrieved for the report. Use the following procedures to configure a report prompt and then to integrate it into the SQL statement for the report.

Procedure

To configure a report prompt

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Reporting / Reports.

  2. Right-click the report of your choice, and then click Properties.

  3. Click Edit SQL Statement, and then click Prompts.

  4. Click the New icon to define a new prompt, or right-click a prompt in the Prompts list and then click Properties to edit an existing prompt.

  5. Configure the following settings for the prompt:

    • Name: Specifies the name for the prompt. This is a required setting.

    • Prompt text: Specifies the prompt text that is displayed when the report runs. This is a required setting.

    • Default value: Specifies the default value that is automatically inserted into the prompt text box when a report runs. This is an optional setting.

    • Allow an empty value: Specifies whether the prompt value is required or if it is optional. By default, this setting is not enabled and the prompt value is required.

    • Provide a SQL statement: Specifies whether a list of possible values will be retrieved for the prompt based on a SQL statement. When it is enabled, click Edit SQL Statement to specify the SQL statement for the prompt. For more information about specifying the SQL statement for a prompt, see Prompt SQL Statement Dialog Box.

  6. Click OK, click OK, and then click OK again to save the prompt.

To integrate the report prompt into the SQL statement

  1. In the Configuration Manager console, navigate to System CenterConfiguration Manager / Site Database / Computer Management / Reporting / Reports.

  2. Right-click the report of your choice, and then click Properties.

  3. Click Edit SQL Statement to open the Report SQL Statement dialog box.

    To integrate a prompt into the report, you must specify the prompt name as a variable in the SQL statement of the report by using the syntax @promptname. The following SQL statement example integrates a prompt named username into the SQL statement for the report. When the report runs, it requests the user name, and then it will return data from the v_R_System view where the User_Name0 field is equal to the value entered for the prompt.

    SELECT SyS User_Name0 AS 'User Name', SYS.Name0 AS 'Computer Name' FROM v_R_SYSTEM SYS

    WHERE User_Name0 LIKE @prompt2

  4. Click OK, and then click OK again to save the changes to the report.
