Create a report in NTA

Before creating a new report, look at the predefined reports. Consider whether you can use a predefined report, adjusting certain properties or the time frame.

For detailed information about creating reports in the SolarWinds Platform Web Console, see Create and view reports in the NPM online documentation for more information.

  2. Click Manage Reports.

    3. Define sorting of items in the report with Sort Results By.
