Article summary


A report displays detailed information about the tests, jobs, metadata, and profiles in Validatar. You can also embed Tableau Server dashboards in Validatar by creating a custom report.


Why Use Reports?

Reports help to answer questions about the status of your data quality. Need to send a status update? Send a report instead. Want to get consistent notifications about tests executed during a period of time? Create and subscribe to a report that details that information.

How Reports Work

Reports are driven by built-in datasets. These datasets are, in turn, driven by secured views against the Validatar database. Want to create connect the Validatar database to your own reporting tool? Use the secured views to create visualizations and reports.

Each dataset can be viewed on its own or can be used to create a report which is shareable with the entire team. Create a report by selecting the dataset from the navigation pane and clicking Create New Report. Customize the report by editing the columns the report displays and adding filters to return specific information.
