Barracuda Web Security Gateway

Migrating Reports to the Barracuda Reporting Server

  • Last updated on

 

If you are running the Barracuda Web Security Gateway version 11.0 and higher, you have the option to purchase and use a Barracuda Reporting Server appliance for a faster, more accurate reporting system that can offload processing from the Barracuda Web Security Gateway.

When you connect one or more Barracuda Web Security Gateway devices to the Barracuda Reporting Server, your scheduled reports in the connected devices are automatically migrated to the Barracuda Reporting Server. The migration process begins when you enter the Barracuda Reporting Server connection information within Barracuda Web Security Gateway, as described in Reporting With the Barracuda Web Security Gateway Version 11 and Above.  

All Barracuda Web Security Gateway reports remain on the device, even after it is connected to the Barracuda Reporting Server. Reports created with the Barracuda Reporting Server include data from the time the report is migrated to the Barracuda Reporting Server. Historical data, gathered by the Barracuda Web Security Gateway before its connection to the Barracuda Reporting Server, is not migrated to the Barracuda Reporting Server.  

Migrating Scheduled Reports to the Barracuda Reporting Server


Disconnecting Devices and Associated Reports

If you choose to disconnect a Barracuda Web Security Gateway from the Barracuda Reporting Server, the reports you originally created on the Barracuda Web Security Gateway are re-enabled with their original settings. You can again manage reports within the Barracuda Web Security Gateway. Any updates you might have made to those original reports or any new reports you created in Barracuda Reporting Server are not migrated back to the disconnected Web Security Gateway.

If you choose to disconnect the Barracuda Web Security Gateway from the Barracuda Reporting Server, reports created or migrated to Barracuda Reporting Server, and report modifications made within Barracuda Reporting Server, remain within Barracuda Reporting Server and can continue to be managed there.   

If you have scheduled reports on the Barracuda Reporting Server, those reports continue to be sent out per the schedule you configured, even after you disconnect the Barracuda Web Security Gateway. If you want to disable scheduled reports, you must do so manually on the Barracuda Reporting Server.
