Table of contents

Updated: June 16, 2017

The File Repository or Central Repository is a location to publish and store reports.

Users can email or publish their reports. The published reports can either be published to a default path or a defined target location. The user defined target location can be defined from the Reports Schedule window or from the File Repository window.

Define a file repository

  1. Go to Settings > File Repository.
  2. In the File Repository window, click Add.
  3. In the Set up a Central File Repository, enter values for the following fields:
    • Display Name: Enter a meaningful name for your File Repository.
    • Device name or IP: Enter the device name or IP address where you shared directory resides
    • CIFS Share Name or NFS Export Name: Choose the appropriate field for your environment, and enter name of your mapped drive
    • Path: Enter the Path for your shared directory.
  4. Click Save. The repository is now available in the Publish Report > Target drop down menu.

Below is an example for a CIFS Share on C:\publisheports:


Restrictions for the target file share include:

  • Mapped directories require write access enabled.
  • The mapped drives must be within the same domain as the SRM Profiler server.

See the KB article, Create a report with SRM Profiler for more information on publishing reports.
