How to create Subscriptions with CA Output Management Web Viewer 12.1


A Subscription is a group of Favorites that has been given a name and description. This Subscription name can now be used by Administrators and Advanced Users to assign this bundle of reports to one or more Roles. Only Advanced Users and Administrators can create Subscriptions, and only Administrators can assign the Subscriptions to other Roles.

Since subscriptions are built from favorite reports, there must be at least one favorite available to include in the subscription. If you don’t have at least one favorite in your list you must first designate one or more reports as favorites.


To create a Subscription: 

  1. From the Subscription tab, click the Create link above the Subscription List in the left pane. The create subscription panel appears in the right pane. 
  2. Find the User Favorite List and be sure that you have at least one favorite report listed. 
  3. Enter a Subscription Name. This is the name administrators will see when choosing subscriptions to add to a Role. 
  4. Enter a Subscription Description.  On the reports tab, users of the subscription will see this explanation of the subscription contents. 
  5. Select one of the following
    ?Private radio button 
    ?Public radio button 
  6. Select at least one favorite- from the cross-repository favorites list, locate a favorite that you want to designate as part of the Subscription and click the checkbox in the left column. 
  7. Click the Create button at the top right corner of the pane. 

The Subscription is created.
