Xtraction powered by Landesk
Xtraction is a visualization tool that enables you to simplify the status reporting of connected application databases through interactive, real-time dashboards. You can use Xtraction to export this same data into formats such as MS Word for presentations to management or staff, as well as create custom reports using standard SQL statements that run outside of the Xtraction component framework.
Xtraction presents data from the connected application databases (known as "data sources") in the form of components defined within the Xtraction data model.
With Xtraction, you can:
• Produce data in many forms, from dashboards to documents to reports.
•Set up dashboards and status reports for one or more data sources within a single view.
•Capture data permanently and easily, from simple screen shots to scheduled exports of pre-defined reports comprising multiple components.
•Use an alert feature to set up notifications for keeping track of data source status changes.
You can use Xtraction's web-based designer tools to connect to and extract information from one or more target data sources. Xtaction's tools enable you to create dashboards, documents, or custom reports in any number of ways using a variety of components made available by each data source. Drag and drop navigation-pane components into the details pane to assemble content into visually appealing graphs charts, lists, and images.
The Xtraction environment is made up of these parts:
•Client devices that view and interact with the Xtraction web-based application window.
•The Xtraction server running under Windows, with the Xtraction database created in Microsoft SQL Server. The Xtraction application and its database can be installed on the same server or separate servers.
•Target data sources held in any combination of Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, Sybase, Informix, MySQL, DB2, PostgresSQL, NexusDB, or Teradata. These data sources can be installed on a single database server or on separate servers.
For details about the web-based interface, see About the Xtraction user interface.
To access Xtraction, open a web browser and enter the URL provided by the administrator. Typically, the default URL is:
http://[SERVER]/Xtraction/ (where [SERVER] is the name of your Xtraction server)
For Windows authentication: If you're already authenticated to the domain, you shouldn't have to re-enter your credentials. But, if prompted, enter your Windows user ID and password.
For Local authentication: Enter the username and password provided by the administrator. Once you're authenticated, the Xtraction application window will open. Your access to the features is governed by your user rights.
When logging out, the best way is to use the Logout option at the bottom of the window to release your license for others to use. You can also log out by closing the web browser, but your license may not be immediately released in this case.
You can add various startup parameters to the Xtraction application URL that act as defaults. After the URL, enter the parameters as shown in the example below. Separate each parameter with "&":
•refresh: Set to "true" to enable a refresh by default of the content displayed in the Auto Refresh & Cycle list.
•refreshSeconds: The number of seconds to use for the refresh time.
•cycle: Set to "true" to enable a cycle by default of the content displayed in the Auto Refresh & Cycle list. If set to true, refresh will also be enabled by default, so you can omit the refresh parameter.
•collapsed: Set to "true" to ensure that the sidebar is collapsed by default.
•favorite: The name of the favorite content to load in the Auto Refresh & Cycle list. This name must exactly match the name of the favorite content. If this value is omitted, your default favorite will be loaded (if set up).
•theme: The color theme to be used for the session. If not specified here, the theme will default to the theme specified under the Administration > Settings link. If no theme is set there, it defaults to "Ivanti." Options are Black, Blue, LightBlue, LightGray, LightGrayInternational, and Ivanti.
The following example uses these parameters: refresh & cycle, every 2 minutes, the sidebar collapsed, the Daily favorite loaded by default, and the theme as Blue:
