AEM Assets provides an enterprise level reporting framework that scales for large repositories through an intuitive user experience.
Let’s take a look at AEM assets reports. Reports can be found by - navigating to AEM tools, assets, and clicking on the reports card. This console will list any - previously generated reports, as well as allow you - to create new reports. Let’s create a new report by - clicking the create button. This will take us to the - create report wizard, which allows us to - choose the type of report we want to create. Out of the box AEM provides - a number of reports for this demonstration let’s create a modification report. Let’s create a report for all the assets that have been modified for - the weekend site in 2020.
The first step is to create - a meaningful report title, and then we’ll select - the weekend site path to restrict the scope of this report.
Next let’s set the date - range to include all of 2020.
We’ll also give the option - to schedule the report, but we’ll leave it selected as now as we want to review - this report immediately. Next, we’re given the option - to define which metadata we want to include in the report. The default column is a list - of commonly used data points, but we can also add - custom columns to do this click add give the column a name and map this to a property.
This allows us to pick any asset property or metadata attribute - to include on the report we can browse into substructures - such as JCR content metadata to get the full - suite of metadata properties.
In this case let’s just pick the JCR created by metadata - property and create the report Back in the asset reports console. We have our generated report and we can see that it was - generated successfully. If we select it and click view, we get a web version of the report. This report lists all - of the asset’s metadata that meets our reports criteria and lists all of the metadata - points that we selected. We have our default columns - here and over on the right we have our custom defined column. Not only can we review - report data in the web view, we can also download - this data as a CSV file, allowing us to open the report in a tool like Microsoft Excel, where the data can be sorted, filtered, or manipulated in any number of ways. - -
AEM 6.5 provides the capability to configure asset reports, allowing administrators to define what is tracked and included in the reports.
