Last Check by Location Report Cards provides a quick visualization of response status and duration (if the Show Duration option is checked upon configuring) per device from assigned locations. The information on the card updates automatically every 3 minutes.
The responses are color-coded to easily identify whether the most recent response is successful or not:
- Green for a successful response.
- Red for a failed response that returned errors.
- Grey for an undefined status.
The 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.
Unique URLs that are generated for each report card are secured by several means (discussed below), and unless specifically exposed by the service owner, are unavailable to the general public. You can check and change your dashboard accessibility status under Reports > Shareable Report Cards.
You can restrict access to the report card in the shareable report card settings so only users of your Dotcom-Monitor account will be able to open the URL and view the report card data.
If you want to revoke access to a specific report card, you can go to the Shareable Report Cards manager, and reset GUID from the report card actions menu.
There are two ways to create a new report card:
- From within the Shareable Report Cards manager page. To add a new card, click New Card > Last Check by Location.
- From within the Monitor Status dashboard. See the Monitor Status Dashboard article for more details.
Access to the Report Card
Once a report card is created, 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.
By default, all users on the Internet can access the report card via the URL that is automatically generated for the report card (the Anyone with the link option). However, 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 performance report card, in the Access field, select Users in Your Organization.
Name: Enter a descriptive name for the card that will be displayed across the top of the report card page.
Assigned Locations: Select the monitoring locations the results from which you want to show on the report card.
Assigned Devices: Select the devices to include in the report card.
To display response duration time for responses with errors and Ok statuses, check the Show Duration option.
Once a new report card is created, you can copy the link to the report card from the card actions menu within the Shareable Report Cards screen or the card preview screen.
For other actions available for report cards, see Dashboard Manager.
