Scheduled Findings / Recommendations Reports

Jump to solution

Is it possible to configure Skyline advisor to set emails out on a schedule?  ie - Send me a weekly schedule of all critical + moderate severity findings in my environment to x email addresses?

The only config option I see is a simple toggle switch 'Email New Critical Findings', which is great - I'd want this to continue, but I see some value in having regular reports, almost to nag our engineers into resolving or acknowledging existing findings / recommendations.

Likewise, are there any plans to offer an API to query Skyline via internal automation?  Feel there could be come value in exposing / feeding Skyline data to internal monitoring tools.

I'm trying to develop a process for our engineers to regularly review Skyline - scheduled emails and API access would help here I think.

Thanks

Hello mrstorey303​,

Welcome to Skyline Communities,

Please find the answers under each question

Is it possible to configure Skyline advisor to set emails out on a schedule?  ie - Send me a weekly schedule of all critical + moderate severity findings in my environment to x email addresses?

  • Skyline Advisor would send automatic emails to all the users who has access to Skyline Advisor service under the Organization, it would only send email when there are new Critical findings

The only config option I see is a simple toggle switch 'Email New Critical Findings', which is great - I'd want this to continue, but I see some value in having regular reports, almost to nag our engineers into resolving or acknowledging existing findings / recommendations.

  • If you are a Premier Service customer, you would receive the emails for Operational Summary Report once in 15 days which can be utilized for review

Likewise, are there any plans to offer an API to query Skyline via internal automation?  Feel there could be come value in exposing / feeding Skyline data to internal monitoring tools.
