Health Report Viewer

The DW Spectrum Web Portal, sometimes referred to as the “DW Cloud Portal”, is an online management tool that can be accessed through a web browser to connect with systems registered to a relevant DW Cloud account. Among the various functions of the web portal, DW Spectrum System Owners or Administrators can use the DW Spectrum Web Portal to generate a JSON file that provides a copy of the system alerts log. The JSON file can then be shared with relevant support personnel for their own viewing without needing to log in to DW Cloud themselves.

This article will outline how to acquire the Health Report log from the DW Spectrum Web Portal and how to apply it in such a way to allow support personnel to view the JSON file without requiring a DW Cloud login.

**NOTE:  A DW Cloud account is required for this setup. To create a new DW Cloud account, please refer to DW Cloud Account Setup.

Alternatively, you may drag and drop the JSON file from its downloaded location into the “Drag & drop report anywhere” area.

  1. The DW Spectrum Web Portal will then display the downloaded Health Report Viewer log and a time record for the generated file without ever having to first log into the DW Cloud network. The JSON file can be shared among other users at the Administrator’s discretion.

Be aware that the DW Spectrum Web Portal will not automatically update the displaying log. A new JSON file will need to be generated by the DW Spectrum System Administrator or Owner to provide updated logs.

If you would like to load another JSON file for viewing, click the “Import Another Report” link.
