Reporting Meta Layer Views

The RML views provide visibility into Demand Management and
Deployment Management application areas of the PPM product as described in the following sections. Detailed information on the views and RML messages can be found in the appendix.

Cross-Product Views

Cross-Product Views relates information across Demand Management and Deployment Management application areas. For example, MWFL_STEP_ACTIVITIES shows statistics about workflow step completion across applications.

Deployment Management Views

Deployment Management Views provides information specific to Deployment Management. For example, MPKGL_OBJ_TYPE_DEPLOYMENT_D provides summary information for package deployment activity, broken down by object type and calendar day. MPKGL_PACKAGE_LINES provides information about package lines, including global package line user data fields.

Demand Management Views

Demand Management Views provides information specific to
Demand Management. For example, MREQ_OPENED_CLOSED_BY_TYPE_D provides summary information for request submission and completion activity, broken down by request type and by calendar day. MREQ-REFERENCES provides information about references related to
Demand Management requests.

Other Views

Other Views provides information about Demand Management and Deployment Management entities like workflows and security groups. For example, MWFL_STEP_SECURITY_USERS lists all users with authority to act on a given workflow step through static security group or user linkage, as defined in the workflow step window in the Workflow workbench.

These views are useful to report designers. KRML_CALENDAR_DAYS is a utility table that contains daily date records.

For reporting needs not met by the view in the preceding categories, the RML provides entity-specific views that map to the data shown in the user interface. For example, each request type in Demand Management has a unique view in the RML that presents both request detail fields and user data fields. This allows report writers to devise reports that implement specific customer-oriented business logic contained in customer-defined fields.
