Notifications

One can define who and how reports notifications are sent. 5 methods are available, alone or simultaneously: 

  • Email
  • Power BI 
  • Storage: store the report directly in Opisense (see tab “storage” at the top bar of the platform Opisense).
  • Azure Table Storage: send the report over to an environment of Microsoft that stores data. This option should be chosen if one is willing to send over data to Power BI Desktop.
  • FTP: send the report to any FTP, SFTP or FTPS

In the Report schedule pop-up, just click on the Add another notification link, then choose the methods in the drop-down list.
