Automate report generation

To automate report generation, use Xoom Processor in conjunction with a batch file or script, which should be triggered with a Windows scheduled task.

Here are the steps for automating report generation. (Alternatively, set-up Configuration Versioning, configuring the <Transform> element of the Xoom query with the requisite transformation.)

  1. Write a batch file or other script that includes a command for Xoom Processor to retrieve configuration, transform it with the requisite report, and save the results at a suitable location with a sensible naming strategy.
  2. Test the batch file or script.
  3. Run the batch file or script on demand, or create a scheduled task using Windows Task Scheduler.
