Configuring the Requests View

The Requests view uses an SBM Listing or Multi-Table report to return requests.

You can use the provided Request Center - My Requests report, which returns items submitted by the logged-in user that were modified in the past 30 days.

You can also choose a custom report for the Requests view, as long as you follow the criteria in Requests Report Criteria.

To customize the Requests view:

  1. Select Customize | Requests.
  2. Choose from the available options (which change depending on the detected process apps):
    • Request Center default, which uses the Request Center - My Requests contained in the Service Desk snapshot shipped with Request Center.
    • Other Report, which allows you to search for and select a custom Listing or Multi-Table report. Reports are only available if they meet the criteria listed in Requests Report Criteria.
  3. Select the Use first six report columns to control the headers in the Requests view. The first six columns use the same order as specified in the Select Columns to Display setting in the report you select to return requests.
    Note: The report must contain the system fields as noted in the following section because they are used for sorting items. The system fields can appear after the six fields you choose as column headers.

Requests Report Criteria

Reports must meet the following criteria before you can add them to the Requests view.
  • Report Type

    You can choose a single pre-defined Listing report or a Multi-Table report. Multi-Table reports are recommended if you want to return requests from multiple applications.

  • Privilege Category

    You cannot select a private report. Also, be sure to verify that all Request Center users have access to run the reports and view report results. For example, If you add the report at the Base Project level, users may not see results in their Request Center view.

  • Required System fields as display columns

    The following system fields must be set as display columns or the report will not be available for the b view.

    • Last Modified Date
    • Owner
    • Submit Date
    • Title
  • Search Filter
    • Query-at-Runtime parameters are not allowed.
    • Calculation columns are not allowed.
    • Optionally, use a "Submitter contains any current user" condition to only return items submitted by the user who is logged in.
