Applies To: Forefront Identity Manager
This operations guide provides information for producing reports by using Microsoft® BHOLD Reporting, a module of the Microsoft BHOLD Suite Service Pack 1 (SP1). This guide consists of the following sections:
Introduction to administering Microsoft BHOLD Reporting provides an overview of BHOLD Reporting and the objectives that you can achieve by carrying out the tasks described in this guide.
Administering Microsoft BHOLD Reporting explains how to use BHOLD Reporting to produce reports that let you view the contents and relationships of the normalized role model maintained by BHOLD Core.
When to use this guide
Use this guide when:
You want to use built-in reports provided by BHOLD Reporting to extract and view information about your BHOLD role model.
You want to create custom reports to extract and view information about the role model to help you understand how the role model meets your business requirements.
You want to modify existing reports to improve their ability to show the information that you need.
This guide assumes a basic understanding of BHOLD Core and the normalized role models that BHOLD maintains. It contains procedures that are designed for operators or designated users who have varied levels of expertise and experience. Although the procedures provide operator guidance from start to finish, operators must have a basic understanding of how objects in the BHOLD Core role model relate to each other and their purpose. BHOLD Reporting operators must have the necessary permissions in BHOLD to view all BHOLD data. For more information, see BHOLD Core permissions in Microsoft BHOLD Suite Technical Reference.
