Performance Report Cards, aka Device State by Monitoring Agent Report Cards) display response time per device from each selected location.

The responses are color coded to easily identify whether the most recent response:

  • Green for a successful response.
  • Yellow for a manually postponed response.
  • Red for a failed response.
  • Grey for an undefined status.

The performance report card can be shared with other users on the Internet by copying and pasting the unique GUID-based URL into an email or other document. By default, all users on the Internet can access the report card via the unique GUID-based URL.

Security

Unique URLs that are generated for each performance report card are secured by several means (discussed below), and unless specifically exposed by the service owner, are unavailable to the general public. In order to make performance report cards accessible from outside of the Dotcom-Monitor service, the service owner must “activate” the report card functionality. You can check and change your dashboard status under Reports > Shareable Report Cards.

Access

Once a performance report card is enabled, it is assigned a global unique identifier (GUID), for example, “B5BB0BEEA67E47648F27B5F634EDD75C”. This randomized GUID makes it virtually impossible to find the report card unless it is specifically shared, or published, where it can be viewed.

Restrict Access

You can restrict access to the report card so only users of your Dotcom-Monitor account will be able to open the URL and view the report card data. To allow only authenticated users to view the report, select the Restricted access option upon configuring the report card settings.

Revoke Access

If you want to revoke access to a specific report card, you can go to the dashboard manager, and reset GUID from the report card actions menu.

Note that resetting the GUID for a report will disable access for everyone that had the old link to the report.

Configuration
