SCCM Dynamic Report Link to Get Specific Application Details | ConfigMgr

Let’s learn in this blog post how to create SCCM Dynamic report link to get specific application details installed on systems. Most of the SCCM administrators might receive requests to provide the report, like a specific application installed on how many devices. Then as an admin, you have to go to the SQL database, write a query, extract a report, and share.

This is a daily task for SCCM admin. So I feel let’s automatic this task and create a custom query link. I will share my experience on how to create a Dynamic report link to get the specific applications installed on the machines. After creating the custom report link, you can share it with respective members to get the details easily.

How to Create Dynamic Report Link

Before creating a custom report link, create a folder where you need to keep all the custom links. There are options available in ConfigMgr Console and SQL server report link to create custom reports.

In Configuration Manager console, go to the Monitoring tab -> Reporting and right-click create a report. Provide the name of the report and browse the path where you want to save the report. Click next to complete the task. Then edit the report in report builder.
