Adding Workbench as a Data Source to Reporting Engine


These are the tasks required before adding the Workbench as a data source to Reporting:

  1. Add the Reporting Engine as a service to your NetWitness deployment.
  2. Add the Workbench as a service to your NetWitness Archiver host (if not already installed).

Note: Adding Workbench collections as a data source to Reporting Engine depends on a trusted connection. If the Workbench is established with a trusted connection, you must manually add Workbenchcollections as a source to the Reporting Engine.

To associate the Workbench data source with the Reporting Engine:

  1. Go to netwitness_adminicon_25x22.png (Admin) > Services.
  2. Select a Reporting Engine in the Services panel. Select netwitness_actions_icon.png View > Config.
    The Services Config view is displayed with General tab Open.
  3. Click the Sources tab, click netwitness_add_icon.png in the toolbar and select Available Services.
    The Available Services dialog is displayed.
  4. Select a Workbench service and Click OK.
    The Service Information dialog is displayed.
  5. Enter User Name and Password.

    • Required if the Workbench service is Trusted.
    • Optional if the Workbench service is not trusted (added manually).
  6. Click OK.
  7. Select Collection in Add a Collection from Workbench dialog.
  8. Click OK.


You can now create reports on the data collected by the Workbench.
