Creating a Custom Policy Report

You can add custom reports to the Reports page of the Groups Web Interface. Creating a custom report requires several steps, including adding a related action or actions to the PureMessage policy, and registering the report.

Links to custom reports are displayed in the Policy Reports section at the bottom of the Report Types sidebar. They are based on marks that are added to the message log using the Custom policy mark (pmx_custom_mark) action.

Custom reports can be set up with or without the :overwrite option (called Log only one mark per message for the specified key in the Policy Constructor). Whether you use this option will depend on the nature of the report. Examples of both follow.
