Using Resource Analyzer, is it possible to see if a report was run from a portal?

I couldn't seem to find anything about portals in the RA manual.

Thanks for your help,

Matt

Well, I can't answer your question as I don't use Resource Analyzer and since you don't have any responses, I'll throw out there what we do. We created a audit_logger.fex that logs, the username, ipaddress, fex that is being execute, and params being passed. We then include that into all our reports/fexes. This allows us to fully audit anyone logged into the system or what they are looking at. We don't log the response data, but with the param data, we should be able to reproduce what they see. Hope that helps.

Resource Analyzer just measures activities from Report server. It would be nice if WeBFOCUS would be supplied with a Resource Analyzer portal with some info about portal usage / client usage.

localhost_access_log in tomcat/logs gives some info on requests that have been done.

Thanks for the helpful responses guys.

Frans - Do you do any reporting off of the localhost_access_log files? If so, would you be willing to share some of your code or at least give me an idea of how I could report off of them? Could I possibly run a report caster job every night to process yesterday's file and then store the data somewhere?

I work for a university and am currently creating usage statistic reports for our various departments. It would be great if I could create a report that would show how often certain people are accessing their portal.

I appreciate the help,

Matt
