Why are there no reports?

The View page only shows reports that have been previously run by the report scheduler. Check the Sentinel:Schedule page to see if any reports have been scheduled. If reports have been recently scheduled then they may not have been run yet and you will need to wait until they are run by the scheduler before you can view them.

Click on the TXT button to get a text version of the data (in comma separated value format). Click on the HTML link to access the data as an HTML table.
