About Interactive Reports

Go to Analytics > Interactive Reports to use the interactive reporting tool. It presents a wide range of standard reports, based on your organization's subscription, and provides the ability to create up to 500 custom reports as well. It supports real-time interactive analysis. You can seamlessly drill down from any report to the logs, where you can view details such as the specific URLs that users requested, risk score of each URL, and much more.

NOTE: Interactive reports support UTF-8 characters enabling the display of special characters.

An administrator's role and scope define which reports the administrator can view.

  4. Select a report from the Standard Reports tab or the Custom Report tab on the left pane to view it on the right pane. The reports are grouped into folders that can be expanded or collapsed.
