Pages Report

Overview

The Pages report will return data for all files that exist on the staging server.

The Pages report, along with the Directories report, can be helpful when setting up groups and assigning access. These reports can then be exported and imported into one file (for example, an Excel spreadsheet). Additional information can be added, such as that for access settings, an approver, and a group whose members can bypass the approval process. If other information is desired, that can be added too.

For more information, visit the Reports & Workflow page.

The Pages report can also be useful for tracking pages that have been edited and published within a specific period of time.

The following options are available for Pages reports:

  • Select All
  • Path: Can be delimited with the Starts With field.
  • Access: When selected, the options for Available To are Groups or Users so that the report can show which groups or users have access to the content.
  • Toolbar: Shows the toolbar assigned to each page.
  • RSS Feed: Shows the RSS Feed assigned to each page.
  • Bypass Approval: Shows the bypass approval group assigned to each page.
  • Approver: Shows the approver assigned to each page.
  • Date Created: Shows the date and time the page was created. A date range can be selected.
  • Date Saved: Shows the date and time the page was last saved. A date range can be selected.
  • Last Save User: Shows the user that last saved the page.
  • Total Publishes: Shows the number times a page has been published.
  • Last Published: Shows the date and time the page was last published. A date range can be selected.
  • Last Publish User: Shows the last user to publish the page. A date range can be selected.
  • Last Publish Revision: Shows the number of the last revision that was published.
  • Last Publish Target: Shows to which publish target the page was last published.
  • Products: Shows the number of outputs the page is manufacturing (for example, HTML and PDF). Clicking this number brings up the Page Products report for the particular page, where each page product's Dependency Tag, output filetype, and number of subscribers can be viewed.

Tips for the Path Field

Users can take advantage of advanced syntax to narrow their search using the Path field. Aside from entering the path beginning with the root of the site, users can:

  • Use "%" as a wildcard: the % symbol can be used as a wildcard, acting as a substitute for any string of text. For example, entering /%.png in Path will find all PNG files in the site; entering /%/images/ will find all files within an images folder on the site.
  • Use "_" as a single-character wildcard: using _ can act as a substitute for a single character in the filename. To find files or directories with an underscore in the path, use \ to escape the underscore from its normal use as a wildcard. For example, to search for files in /_resources, enter /\_resources/ in the Path field.

Page Products Results

Clicking on the hyperlinked number of products, found in the Page Products column of the Pages Report Results screen, will bring up the Page Products Report. This screen gives detailed information about each dependency tag that is considered a "product" (i.e., file on the production server) of the selected file.

Clicking the hyperlinked dependency tag in this report will send users to the Dependency Tag Subscribers Report, which details more information about whether those dependency tags have been added as links elsewhere on the site.
