Using the XML API and Microsoft Excel to obtain additional reporting from Adobe Connect

Sometimes customers need a custom report that is not included in the normal reports in the Adobe Connect UI.   They can obtain this data by running an API call, however the results get displayed in a browser (in an XML result set) and is not in a user-friendly format as-is.  In lieu of actually building an application that can parse and display the XML in a nice format for the user to be able to display in a useful manner, we can simply use Microsoft Excel to display the data in a nice tabbed report format.

An example of this would be as follows:

Say, you want to report on what users are in a particular group within Adobe Connect, and there is no good established report to actually display this data (other than in the datagrid in the Users and Groups area)…

Here’s what you can do.

Log into the account in a browser, as an admin.

Run the following API (or any API you need to run to obtain the data you are looking for):
http://connectURL/api/xml?action=principal-list&group-id=XXXXXXX&filter-is-member=true

Where:

action=principal-list
group-id= principal-id of group you want to report on
filter-is-member=true

 The results will get returned in the browser in XML format (as seen in the screenshot below):

Save the current page as an XML file by going into the browser options and select ‘Save As’ and make sure you save the page as ‘.xml’.

xml-1

 

After saving the XML locally, open up Microsoft Excel (on Windows) and select Data > From XML Data Import.

xml-2

 

Click OK through all the next pop ups that show up after selecting the XML file and just select the defaults:

xml-3 xml-4

 

Once the data loads in the worksheet, it will be formatted in a nice tabbed display as you see below:

xml-5

Brad’s Short-list for Connect Cluster SaaS Monitoring Options

There are many options on the monitoring theme that are worth considering when trying to decide how to keep trach of Connect server resources in a cluster. Articles describing clustered environments are on the Connect Users Community : http://www.connectusers.com  Simply search the User’s Community using the keywords: cluster, pool, edge, SSL, etc.

To effectively monitor your Connect cluster SaaS options can sometimes be cost effective than home-spun solutions; here are some staff picks with some commentary:

Sumologic- It resembles Splunk. The main difference is that Sumologic is hosted and managed externally and Splunk is hosted and managed on-premise. With Sumologic, there is not any need for software licensing, hardware investments or internal administrator expertise.  Splunk offers a similar service called splunk>storm, but it is not as mature as Sumologic and lacks some of the alerting capability found in Sumologic.

Loggly - An alternative to Sumologic could be Loggly which offers a similar service; it seems that the alerting service is not exactly built in.  It requires a little more work and is called AlertBirds.

Note: It is possible to take an on-premise option like Cacti and port it to Sumologic, so you could effectively kill 2 birds with one stone.  You can setup a forwarder in 30 seconds and be searching the logs in no time at all.

Monitis – Provides capabilities similar to those of Nagios along with external monitoring.  The Monitis community writes custom monitors thereby enriching the options.

LogicMonitor – An alternative to Monitis could be something like LogicMonitor.  You may be able to port your existing Nagios checks over to it (check and verify).  This si a simple solution, installing the monitor and having basic checks like CPU, Memory, Bandwidth, Disk Usage, Disk IO and external ping, http, https and udp monitors setup would take all of 20 minutes.

Pingdom- An alternative to RedAlert at a lesser cost.  It is trusted by millions and is easy to use and has more endpoints than comparable options.  It takes five minute setup.

The beauty of a SaaS monitoring solution is that you do not need to worry about scaling your monitoring solution every time you scale your Connect architecture.  You can have a single solution for 20 Connect Clusters vs having to add Cacti servers, Nagios servers, Splunk architecture and licensing to handle the additional monitoring needs commensurate with expansion.  With a SaaS solution, there in not any build-out time.  You can literally have 20 monitors up and running in under an hour, and work on adding additional ones at your leisure in between casts with your new Deceiver 8 Fly Combo.

With reference to basic on-premise monitoring, make sure you use standard perfmon counters for things like CPU, Memory etc. For meeting count and meeting user monitoring you may use the FMSAdmin API with scripts to make various calls and then parse the data and pass it to an option such as Cacti.  To insure robustness, the FMSAdmin service should be restarted routinely. You could also use similar counters to pull data directly from the Connect database, but this is not without risk as Connect updaters and upgrades can introduce changes that may require rework of your custom counters.

Connect Training Course does not Produce Completion Report

Issue: When a course is started and left open, perhaps while multitasking or looking up additional references, etc., it may timeout and work of the trainee in the course can be lost.

How to approach this – As with many symptoms, there is often more than one ameliorating approach; two are offered below:

One very quick way to help with  this is to increase the session time-out value in Connect

  •  At the top of the Connect Central administrative window, click Administration.
  • Click Account.
  • Click Session Settings.
  • Enter a timeout length in minutes that is long enough to cause fewer instances of timeouts.
  • Click Save.

Another way to approach this is to use Adobe Presenter 9 to create the training content. Presenter 9 handles sessions and bookmarking that is not supported in previous versions of Presenter.

System usage reports

System usage reports show, from different perspectives, how your organization is using Adobe Connect. All of the reports can be filtered by specifying a date range. Adobe Connect system administrators typically create and use system reports. The system reports are different from each other and provide distinct data.Below is the list of different system usage reports.

Individual Usage : This report provides information about how a single user is interacting with Adobe Connect. The report includes total meeting minutes, total trainings completed, and total storage consumption. The report helps you determine how many meetings and training sessions a user has attended. The storage consumption number tells you which individuals uploaded the most content.

Group Usage : This report shows many details about a group of users. The top of the report lists summary information about the group, including total number of members, total meeting minutes, and total consumption. The second section of the report lists the individual members and data for each, such as total meeting minutes, login status, and manager name. Run Group Usage reports for different groups to compare and see, for example, which groups are using Adobe Connect the most and least.

Cost Center Usage : This Report shows how members of a specific cost center are using Adobe Connect. One section of the report lists individual members of the cost center and their system usage. Another section lists meetings billed to the cost center and details, such as total number of attendees and meeting owner name. The Cost Center Usage Report helps you track Adobe Connect minutes and costs. Run separate reports for different cost centers to compare their statistics. To get the same information as this report, that is run across all cost centers, rather than a single cost center, generate Consolidated Cost Center Usage report.

Full System Usage : This report provides a high-level summary of Adobe Connect usage. Optionally, filter the report by group and/or by specifying a date range. System, meeting, and training summaries are provided on a single page. This report is useful for telling management and other departments how your organization uses Adobe Connect.

Burst Pack Usage : This report lists how many burst pack minutes your organization is using. (Organizations purchase burst pack minutes when they require more minutes in a particular time period.) The report also shows the number of active rooms and the peak number of users. Use this report to control usage and costs of Adobe Connect.

Mobile Usage : This report provides details about users accessing Adobe Connect from smartphone and tablets. The two mobile-related reports that are available are Mobile System Usage Report and Mobile Device Information Report. These reports shows the device types, the total number of unique users who have connected to sessions with a mobile device, the total number of minutes spent connected from a mobile device, and the peak concurrent value of total number of mobile users. It is possible to distinguish between meeting, seminar, and virtual classroom mobile minutes. Also filters can be applied for date ranges, so that the administrators are able to see some trends over time.

Course Reports

Course reports provide information about individual courses you created and the learners enrolled in the course. The course report shows how a course is used. The report lists if the course is taken, how often it is taken, and if users pass, fail, or complete the course. Course reports showing individual learners taking a specific course enable you to see who has taken the course, their status, and their score.The historical course report includes information about unenrolled and deleted users. Viewing data about unenrolled and deleted learners helps you analyze how the course has been used over time. For example, you can see how many learners have not completed the course and if that number is rising or falling.

Virtual classroom reports

Virtual classroom reports provide details about how virtual classrooms are being used over time. Use the Virtual Classroom Report to see the names, enrollment dates, and completion status for learners in the classroom.

Use the Virtual Classroom Session Attendance Report to view data about a specific session within a virtual classroom. You can see details such as session duration, total number of attendees, attendee names, and the times attendees entered and exited. The information in this report helps you determine if the correct people attended a session and how long they remained in the room. You can also compare different sessions. For example, suppose the same training course is offered in the same virtual classroom at two different times. By running a session report for each time, you can determine which one had higher attendance.

Meeting reports

Meeting room reports show how meeting rooms are being used. The Meeting Room Summary Report enables you to get data about an individual meeting room over time and across sessions. You can obtain information including total unique number of attendees, number of unique sessions, and average duration of a meeting. This information can help you determine if meeting room activity is low. Conversely, if the report shows a meeting room is busy, you could create more meeting rooms to better manage the workload.

The Individual Meeting Session Report enables you to view information about a specific session within a meeting room. You see details such as total number of attendees, total number of guests, and all attendee names. By comparing planned duration to actual session duration, you determine if a meeting ended sooner or later than planned. The information in this report also helps you determine if the correct people attended a specific meeting and how long they stayed in the room.
