Report Writer Design Mode for the SolarWinds Platform (deprecated SolarWinds Platform feature)
This topic applies to all SolarWinds Platform products except for the following products:
ETS — LA — WPM
In Orion Platform 2020.2.6, the Report Writer tool is removed from the SolarWinds Platform. Migrate the reports to the web and use the web-based reports.
Use Design mode to create new reports and modify or rename existing reports. The options available for creating and modifying reports are the same. Design mode options are also dynamic, based upon the type of report, included report data, and report presentation. The options available depend on the type of report being designed, but all reports require that you select the data to include and decide how that data will be sorted, ordered, filtered, and presented.
