In WatchGuard Cloud, you can view reports that provide insight into the network activity on your devices. Reports display details of the traffic allowed and denied by the device, the services that are enabled, and other device information.

Some reports include pivots that display different views of the report data. You can also export data from reports to a PDF or CSV file. You can customize the branding on PDF summary reports. For more information, see Add Custom Branding.

For information about the available reports, see WatchGuard Cloud Device Reports List.

View Device Reports

You can view WatchGuard Cloud device reports at the folder or device level. At the top-folder level, reports show combined data from all your devices. At the device level, reports show data for the selected device only.

To view device reports in WatchGuard Cloud:

  1. Log in to WatchGuard Cloud.
  2. Select Monitor > Devices.
  3. Select a folder or a specific device.
  4. To select the report date range, click .
  1. From the list of reports, select a report.
    The selected report data opens.

Filter Reports and Dashboards by Date

WatchGuard Cloud reports and dashboards display data for the current date by default. To view data for a different time period, you can select a predefined period or specify a custom date range.

When you change the time period for a report or dashboard, that time period is used to filter data in all other reports and dashboards you view until you change it.

Reports and dashboards only show data from the time period covered by the Data Retention License for a device. The system time on the Firebox that you want to generate reports for must be less than 8 hours from the current time. If the local Firebox time is more than 8 hours from the current time, WatchGuard Cloud does not accept the logs to generate the report.

View Pivots

Some reports include pivots to reorganize the report data into a different view. For example, some Web reports include pivots to display report data by number of hits or by total bandwidth used.

To switch to a different view, select a pivot from the drop-down list above the report.
