This PDF report generation function is not available with SAAM.
thanks for a quick reply Brice,
that sad for us. when is the plan to add PDF generate function in SAAM? we really need that for our customer. is there any other alternate to do so until we have that in SAAM? thanks...
SAAM is essentially a visual tool that is centered on the visualization of the model. There are several way to refine this visualization and then when meaningful to be shown to a user, to export it (print, SVG, PNG) - Application modeling tools - BMC Discovery 11.0 - BMC Documentation.
What would you need on a PDF report as an information to provide your users with, that is not available on the visualization?
We used to follow the PDF generate for our customer and they'd quit liked it and wish to follow the same pattern going forward. they ask question that if the PDF option was present in earlier version then why has been rolled out now? they don't care how we do the mapping but they need the same PDF now as well.
exporting the Models into image isn't that immense as had in PDF. also it's double work for us to export the model in image first and then add that into PDF report. we need it as simple as it was with CAM PDF generate.
You have to click on export | Print has PNG or SVG then converted to PDF. The feature is available.
thanks for your hit on this Young,
however i was referring to a PDF report where we all hosts, SIs, DBs included like we get through SAM. the one you're referring would only give us the Model Image that we could get into PDF easily.
it's very tough to convince our client who were used to of PDF reports for application models and that's not there now in SAAM. very Pity.
You can get similar type of report by combining PDF. If your interested
let me know. I'll send you steps.
Please Share the steps
