Creating Large Web Reports.

Technote (FAQ)


Can I create a scheduled report in Web Reports larger than 5MB?


I created a scheduled report, but have discovered it can only be 5MB maximum by default. How can I get around this default restriction?

By default, Web reports scheduled reports are limited to 5MB so as not to overwhelm most email systems. To modify this you can add the following registry value:

  • ScheduleActivityFileSize to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\BigFix \Enterprise Server\BESReports

Add the ScheduleActivityFileSize as a string and set the value to either the desired file size in megabytes or set it to 0 for no restriction of file size.

For example, setting it to "10" will make the new limit 10 MB.

The next time someone logs into Web Reports the change should be made.
